The trio of Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal, who have been making headlines for their personal and professional lives, are set to share screen space for the first time in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming magnum opus, Love and War. The film, which is slated to release in cinemas on Christmas 2025, is a historical romance drama that will showcase the love triangle between the three lead characters, set against the backdrop of the Indian independence movement.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Love & War is a love story against war backdrop
“Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been fascinated to make a pure love story that stands the test of time and this one falls right in the zone. It’s a timeless love story with three principal characters played by Ranbir, Alia, and Vicky. The maverick filmmaker is looking to take the film on floors around November 2024 with a marathon schedule. The yet-to-be-titled film is an original love story set against the backdrop of War. It’s an homage by SLB to the 1964 classic, Sangam directed by Raj Kapoor,” revealed a source close to the development to Pinkvilla.
“It’s a great story that got all three stalwarts excited. It’s a casting coup pulled off by SLB in such a short span, and that’s purely based on the power of his screenplay. Rarely are 4 of the top names from the fraternity excited by the same subject and it has happened this time with SLB, Ranbir, Alia, and Vicky signing on the project,” the source added.
Alia Bhatt shares the announcement for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s epic saga, Love & War
Alia Bhatt shared the official announcement with a burning heart emoji. The film is officially announced to release in cinemas on Christmas 2025.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who is known for his grandiose and lavish films, is expected to feature extravagant sets, costumes, music and action sequences, as well as a star-studded supporting cast even in this film.
The film’s shooting is expected to begin in Nov 2024, and will take place in various locations across India and abroad. It will mark the reunion of SLB with Ranbir Kapoor after Sawaariya. Interestingly, SLB was initially planning to make Baiju Bawra with Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, but he decided to put that on hold and start a new journey with this epic love story instead.
