After the release of Padmaavat, a lot was said and written about Sanjay Leela Bhansali's new project which was touted to be a love story. Not long ago, it was confirmed that the filmmaker has reunited with his Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam actor Salman Khan for the same film. Soon after that announcement, reports suggested that SLB is planning to cast Shah Rukh Khan in the yet-to-be-titled film. Besides SRK, rumour mills were abuzz with reports of Priyanka being cast opposite the Dabangg actor. But, it was apparently Salman who expressed apprehensions working with the global icon, due to their Bharat fall out.
Meanwhile, if the latest development by Bollywood Hungama is anything to go with, then Sanjay Leela Bhansali has registered THREE titles for Meena Kumari's 1952 cult classic Baiju Bawra. And this remake is said to be the one wherein the filmmaker has planned to rope in SRK with Salman.

Baijnath, Baiju, and Baiju Tansen are three titles which SLB has registered. If this piece of news is anywhere close to the truth, well, then we are sure it will be a delight for Salman-Shah Rukh Khan's fans. The original movie, Baiju Bawra, was directed by Vijay Bhatt and it won Meena Kumari the first-ever Best actress Filmfare award in 1954.
On the work front, Salman recently wrapped up the shoot of Ali Abbas Zafar's Bharat, which is set for Eid release this year. Khan has reunited with his Tiger Zinda Hai co-star Katrina Kaif for the movie. Shah Rukh Khan, on the other hand, was last seen in Aanand L Rai's Zero, S which turned out to be a box-office dud. Post Zero, King Khan has not officially announced his new acting project yet. Although, we are hoping that he does the same soon.
