Alia is completely unfazed by the detractors. In an interview with an entertainment website, she said, "I didn't get any criticism. I think I got a lot of excitement. I think speculation is also a form of excitement. Inshallah is scheduled to open in theatres on Eid 2020. Salman and Sanjay will collaborate after two decades in Inshallah. She said, Dream with your eyes wide open, they say, and I did.
"I think this is a filmmaker who has given us very good films, he is someone who we all are very fond of and I think we should just trust him with his vision," she added.
Alia is extremely excited about being a part of Inshallah and revealed in a series of tweets that it has "been a long wait". "I was 9 when I first walked into Sanjay Leela Bhansali's office, all nervous and hoping and praying that I would be in his next film. It's been a long wait," she wrote.
"Dream with your eyes wide open, they say, and I did. Sanjay sir and Salman Khan are magical together and I can't wait to join them on this beautiful journey called Inshallah," the Raazi actress wrote in another tweet.
Salman and Sanjay will collaborate after two decades in Inshallah. They last worked together in the 1999 hit Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (not counting Salman's special appearance in Saawariya).
