Expressing his happiness on reuniting with Salmna, Sanjay revealed how exactly Salman became the part of the project. Director was quoted saying, “It was a beautiful, breezy evening. We were sitting in the lawn of his home, and as soon as the narration ended, Salman turned to me, saying, “When do we start?” It took me back to my two-and-a-half-hour narration of Khamoshi: The Musical. We were in his bedroom then and he kept looking at himself in the mirror. I was wondering if he’d even heard me, but when I finished, he told me exactly what he’d liked in the story, making me realize that he is very sharp, and one shouldn’t presume anything with him.”

Talking about the differences, he said, “We’ve had a few issues in the past but whenever we met, even sporadically, we took up from where we’d left off without dwelling on the past and the difference of opinions we might have had. My fondness for him is pure, and Salman, once he offers his friendship, even if you don’t meet or talk in five years, he’s there waiting for you. He’s never told me that he’s liked a shot, a song or a film I’ve made, but has expressed his appreciation for my work to others when he didn’t need to.”

‘Ishallah’ is one among the special films of Sanjay Leela Bhansali. After giving back to hits like ‘Ramleela’, ‘Bajirao-Mastani’ and ‘Padmavaat’, he has collaborated with his all time favorite actor Salman Khan for the film.
