It was recently rumoured that Anushka Sharma will be reuniting with Salman Khan in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming next. Deeming the reports as untrue, Anushka’s spokesperson on Monday said that no such project is on the cards for the actor. “Anushka Sharma would love to collaborate with Sanjay Leela Bhansali but as of now, there is no truth to the speculations claiming Anushka has been signed for his next.
