Bajirao Mastani director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known to have favourite actors and actresses and often repeats his projects with them.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was cast in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Devdas and Guzaarish, Rani Mukerji worked with him in Saawariya and Black, Deepika Padukone in Ram-Leela and Bajirao Mastani, Ranveer Singh in Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Salman Khan in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Khamoshi and Saawariya.

If things had gone well between Aish and Salman, then the duo would be cast in Bajirao Mastani! Now Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan have bagged his next project, Gustakhiyaan. While he recently admitted Aish and Rani to be his favourite among the actresses, his recent statement revealed how much Salman Khan means to him.
He said, "I feel that I should work with them but I also feel that some magic has to remain - what it was - you can't recreate that. Rani and Aishwarya are very special."
"A lot of people feel I am rude, arrogant, disinterested, but I love all the people I have worked with, be it Rani who loves me, and Aishwarya who I never need to say a word to and she's there for me, with Salman I had that, but Salman is still upset about a few things - I don't know what - but those moments are special. Now Ranveer has come into that space for me."
We wish that Salman forgives SLB soon so that we can see the duo work together next!
