Currently busy with the promotions of his much-awaited upcoming action thriller 'Race 3', Salman Khan has a lot on his plate right now. With 'Bharat', 'Kick 2' and 'Dabangg 3' and a dance film with Remo D'Souza already in the pipeline it is being speculated that he has a collaboration with filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali in the offing. Khan added fuel to fire in a recent interview where he talked about his upcoming projects saying, “The films happening are 'Bharat', 'Dabangg 3', 'Sher Khan' the dance film, 'Kick 2' – when the script is ready. And, a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film... when he comes and narrates it to me.”
Khan and SLB have worked together for films in the past and made films like 'Khamoshi' and 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam', both that did really well at the box office. There were also reports that Salman was supposed to play the lead in 'Padmaavat', however, things did not work out and finally, Ranveer Singh was chosen. For the upcoming prospect, it is suggested that Bhansali is considering Deepika Padukone, his current muse, as the potential lead for the film along Salman. No official confirmation has been released as yet.
