On January 24th, Bhansali Productions set the internet ablaze with the grand revelation of its upcoming cinematic marvel, "Love & War." The announcement, made on Instagram, showcased an elegant poster bearing the autographs of Bollywood's elite trio – Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, and Vicky Kaushal. The caption teased the anticipation, declaring, "Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next EPIC saga 'LOVE & WAR' starring #RanbirKapoor @aliaabhatt & and @vickykaushal09. See you in Cinemas on CHRISTMAS 2025."


This announcement triggered a colossal wave of excitement among audiences, marking a casting coup that promises an epic romantic saga. As fans eagerly await the cinematic spectacle scheduled for Christmas 2025, the film's intriguing details have already become the talk of the town.

Unraveling the Buzz: Love and War Remake of Sangam or Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam?

As the internet buzzes with speculation, one prevailing rumour suggests that "Love & War" might be a remake of the timeless love triangle, 'Sangam,' or draw inspiration from the Salman-Aishwarya starrer, 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.' Sanjay Leela Bhansali, renowned for his intense love stories in films like "Ram Leela," "Bajirao Mastani," and "Padmaavat," is set to present yet another passionate tale of romance. Sources indicate that the thematic elements could draw parallels to Raj Kapoor's classic 'Sangam,' adding an extra layer of anticipation for cinephiles.

Behind the Casting: Ranveer Singh's Offer and Vicky Kaushal's Entry


The second piece of intriguing information revolves around the casting dynamics of "Love & War." Bhansali's dream to remake Raj Kapoor's 'Sangam' seems to have found its realization with a stellar trio cast – Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, and Vicky Kaushal. The casting itself is strategic, aligning with the essence of the original film – Raj Kapoor as a soldier, Alia Bhatt stepping into Vyjanthimala's shoes, and Vicky Kaushal embracing the role essayed by Rajendra Kumar.

However, the grapevine suggests that before Vicky Kaushal stepped into the role, the director initially approached his favourite leading man, Ranveer Singh, for the part. Ranveer, who has been the face of Bhansali's back-to-back blockbusters – "Ram Leela," "Bajirao Mastani," and "Padmaavat," deliberated but eventually had to decline the role. This turn of events paved the way for Vicky Kaushal to join the illustrious cast.

The historical parallels don't end there, as it's revealed that in the original film, Raj Kapoor had initially offered Rajendra Kumar's part to Dilip Kumar, who also declined before Rajendra Kumar embraced the role.

It's reported that Bhansali required an entire year for his collaboration with Ranveer and Alia in "Baiju Bawra." Both stars, considering the prestige of working with Bhansali, willingly allotted the required dates. However, with the delay in "Baiju Bawra," Ranveer Singh's schedule opened up, leading to the casting dynamics that eventually brought Vicky Kaushal into the picture.

Anticipation Peaks for "Love & War"
