Alia Bhatt rejects criticism on romancing Salman Khan in Inshallah
MUMBAI: Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt has played down criticism for accepting a film with superstar Salman Khan due to the age difference between the two Indian actors. Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt will be seen together for the first time in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah.
While many welcomed the announcement, some chose to point out the age difference.
“I didn’t get any criticism. I think I got a lot of excitement. I think speculation is also a form of excitement in a way and why shouldn’t there be speculation? There should be and at least I am not bothered by that and I don’t think Salman or Bhansali sir are bothered,” Bhatt told an entertainment portal, according to India Today.
“I think this is a filmmaker who has given us very good films, he is someone who we all are very fond of and I think we should just trust him with his vision,” she added.
Inshallah is slated to open in theatres on Eid 2020.
