Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s office in Mumbai has become a new destination for many Bollywood stars who were seen visiting his place quite often. Every time a star’s car drives into the filmmaker’s office the rumours of collaboration abound.
Recently Sonam Kapoor Ahuja was seen visiting Bhansali’s office, thereby setting tongues wagging about a film together. However, a close source from Bhansali office denied such reports and stated “no such thing!”
“Like all the other stars who were seen visiting Mr Bhansali’s office, Sonam just dropped in for a chat since they go back a long way," the source added.
Even Bhansali clarified saying, “There are many actors who come to visit. We chat over a cup of tea. We don’t have to work together just because we are meeting socially.”
Bhansali launched Sonam in 2007’s 'Saawariya'. Though the film didn't work at the box office it kicked off both Sonam and Ranbir Kapoor’s career.
The Hindi-language romance film produced and directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali was based on Fyodor Dostoevsky's 1848 short story "White Nights".
Co-produced by Sony Pictures Entertainment and released on 9 November 2007, it was the first Bollywood film that received a North American release by a Hollywood studio. This film also marked the last film appearance of Zohra Sehgal before her death on 10 July 2014.
Saawariya was released during Diwali festival alongside clash competition with 'Om Shanti Om'.
