What do Rakul Preet Singh, Sara Ali Khan, and Alia Bhatt have in common? Before you chew your thinking caps off – we have an answer for you, it’s their love for Sanjay Leela Bhansali. In a recent conversation with Goodtimes, Rakul Preet Singh was asked about the director who’s on her wish list, and she responded saying that she would love to work with the ‘Padmaavat’ director Sanjay Leela Bhansali!
On being asked which director she would like to collaborate with, she said, “So many of them! I’d love to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali sir. I’m a huge fan. I mean the way he shows his actors is just amazing.” Sara Ali Khan had expressed a similar desire to work with Mr. Bhansali in her recent interview, as she almost whispered her wish, “Mr. Bhansali aa jaayein.”
Both Rakul Preet Singh and Sara Ali Khan join the league of actresses vying for a film with the director. Alia Bhatt had expressed in an earlier interview that working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali was a dream come true for her. She had earlier tweeted the same on her profile as well, saying that it had been ‘a long wait’ to collaborate with the director.
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.

Alia Bhatt finally has her dream project with Bhansali lined up, in the upcoming drama Gangubai Kathiawadi. The project was announced months after Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah got shelved, much to Alia’s dismay.
So will Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh both get their wish fulfilled of working with the director? Well, that’s something only time will tell!
