Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s films are always heavily anticipated – his last three movies, namely Padmaavat, Bajirao Mastani and Ram Leela were all super hits, performing well at the Box Office and getting appreciated by critics. All three of the above-mentioned films featured Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh and now, according to media reports, the ace director is coming together with Salman Khan for his next.

That’s not all – the film might be named Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam 2.

“Sanjay, who is penning the script, has narrated the idea to Salman and he is on board. Though the film isn’t a sequel or a remake, it may be called Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam 2. SLB feels that the movie has all the elements that Hum Dil… had. So, the title feels like a natural fit for part two. However, it will have a different story and new characters. An A-list heroine will be cast opposite Salman, but the makers haven’t approached anyone as yet,” a source told DNA.

“Salman starts Dabangg 3 in the last week of March. Once he finishes the third instalment of the cop franchise, he will begin work on this project. The movie is being readied for a 2020 release,” the source added.

Earlier, on Koffee With Karan, Priyanka Chopra had stated that she is in talks with Bhansali for a movie and it makes us wonder if PC and Khan would come together for this movie? Watch this space for more.
