Will Salman Khan now have time for ‘No Entry Mein Entry’?

The writer-director Anees Bazmee has said the script of the long-pending sequel will be ready in a month, but we doubt if the busy superstar will have time to do it

Ever since No Entry (starring Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Fardeen Khan, Lara Dutta, Celina Jaitley, Esha Deol and Bipasha Basu) became a smashing success at the box-office, the film’s producer Boney Kapoor has been having thoughts of making a sequel to the 2005 flick. It’s been seven long years since then, but very little has happened on that front. Initially it was Kapoor’s unfavourable financial condition that stopped him from making the sequel. When the producer’s finances improved, writer-director of the original film, Anees Bazmee was busy directing comic capers like Singh is Kinng, No Problem and Thank You. Finally Salman Khan, who was going through a low phase in 2009-10 and needed a guaranteed hit, nudged and pushed the producer and director to get going with the sequel plan. So, everyone got excited, only to realise that they still didn’t have a script in place.

It’s been over a year or two since then and finally Bazmee has promised that he will finish the script in a month’s time and start the shoot as soon as possible! But we think it’s a little too late for that, no? Salman’s packed diary (Yash Raj Films’ Ek Tha Tiger, Arbaaz Khan’s Dabangg 2, Sohail Khan’s Sher Khan and Shirish Kunder’s Kick) might not let him accommodate No Entry Mein Entry now? And let’s not forget, filmmakers like Sooraj Barjatya and Atul Agnihotri are already waiting in queue to sign the Bodyguard star. Guess it’s going to be another year or two before No Entry Mein Entry finally goes on the floors.
