When Salman Khan and filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali came together 19 years ago; they created history with ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam' and gave Bollywood and movie buffs the most iconic pair of Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai. 


And now that the duo is all set to reunite after 19 long years for another epic love drama, we just can't keep calm! 


However; not much has been revealed about who the female lead for the film will be. While there are reports of SLB being keen on casting Deepika Padukone for the film; given his long term association with the actress, certain reports suggest that Salman Khan is eager on having Katrina Kaif paired opposite in the film!


In fact; it is also being alleged that when Khan was in talks with Bhansali for Bajirao Mastani, he had made the filmmaker audition Katrina for the film as well! 


There are also rumors of names like Alia Bhatt and Jhanvi Kapoor that are being considered for the female lead, some sources suggest that Bhansali feels the 2 actresses will look relatively young opposite a 53-year-old Salman. 


For the uninitiated; Priyanka Chopra Jonas had recently revealed of the Koffee couch of Koffee With Karan, that she too was in talks with the filmmaker for a project. But industry insiders say that she was not referring to his project, the reason being the ‘Dabangg' actor is still allegedly miffed with PeeCee for walking out of Bharat at the last moment. Oops...


The film; that is fondly being titled ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam 2' by fans, is likely to go on floors soon. It may be recalled that it was during the shooting of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam itself that Salman Khan feel head over heels in love with Aishwarya Rai and the rest is of course history!


Well; we certainly are excited to see a fresh pairing in the face of Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone while we still love the ever sizzling chemistry of Salman with Katrina!
