Sanjay Leela Bhansaali and Salman Khan worked together in two movies i.e. Khamoshi and Hum Dil DeChuke Sanam. However, the films were loved by people and they liked the collaboration of both. There was the rumour about Salman khan being upset about Sanjay Leela Bhansaali casting Shahrukh Khan in Devdas, not him. After that, they don’t talk too much with each other.In a interview, Sanjay leela Bhansaalihas been questioned about Salman Khan, he replied “Maybe I could not make a film with him. If I felt or I am wanting to make a certain kind of cinema and I feel he is not right for the film, I can’t cast him. I understand he will be upset for that because he expects that out of me. He expects a certain kind of love and loyalty. But sometimes, it’s important to do the film that you want to.
However ruthless I may sound, but as a filmmaker, I live that film I’m making. I am not disregarding him as an actor. Today, it doesn’t matter whether I am making a film with him or not because he is cult. He stands there and the film does 300 crores.”
These days, Sanjay leela Bhansaali is busy with his movie Padmavati which is going through a hard phase of controversies. Talking about the film, Salman khan said “I think the censor board and the Supreme Court should be the ones to take a call on that. “Salman also supported Padmavati, however commenting on Sanjay leela Bhansaali the actor said “I don’t know about other people, but he definitely offended me. I gave him two hit films, and then he took Shah Rukh Khan in the next one.”
