Love bloomed between Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan when they cooperated without precedent for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1999). The movie producer needed to reproduce their onscreen enchantment in Bajirao Mastani, yet the two performing artists had a sharp separation, and the venture never took off. Bhansali in the end made the film in 2015 with Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone.

On the off chance that a report in Open magazine is to be trusted, Salman and Aishwarya were the executive’s first decision for Padmavati, too. Obviously, he moved toward them a couple of years back and practically succeeded as well. The main catch was, Aishwarya consented to do the film just on one condition – if Salman assumed the part of the enemy Alauddin Khilji, who embarks to catch Rani Padmini, however has no scenes with her.

Nonetheless, Salman declined the offer. Clearly, the on-screen character was enthusiastic about working with Aishwarya, however just on the off chance that it was a romantic tale that would reproduce their Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam science that fans began to look all starry eyed at. He was unwilling to make due with a film where he wouldn’t share any screen space with her.

Padmavati is as of now being shot with Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor. The film is slated to discharge on November 17.
