After winning a National Award for Bajirao Mastani, ace director Sanjay Leela Bhansali is currently busy developing a script for his next film. While not much is known about the film, Bhansali is reportedly keen to cast either Salman Khan or Shah Rukh Khan for the project.

According to a leading daily report, Bhansali has discussed the idea of his next film with both Khans. However, neither has signed on for the film so far. The daily quoted a source as saying:

"The project is in the pre-production stage and Bhansali wants either Shah Rukh or Salman as the hero. He is sort of torn between the two Khans. Only an official announcement will make things clear."

The director recently met Salman Khan at his residence. However when another leading daily asked Bhansali to speak about the visit, he said, "Yes, I did meet Salman, please don't ask me anything more about it."

While Shah Rukh Khan has worked with Bhansali in Devdas, Salman Khan has collaborated with the director thrice before - in Khamoshi, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Saawariya.

It would be interesting to see which of the two Khans will sign on for the project.
