"He really liked the script."
Salman Khan recently shared that a sequel to the 2005 film No Entry is in the works.
While fans could not contain their excitement over the news, more developments have come in regarding the upcoming project.
As per Bollywood Hungama, the sequel to the cult comedy will feature a total of ten leading ladies.
After several discussions, the sequel of No Entry was confirmed back in 2012.
Amid much speculation around the original cast, it has also been revealed that the original female leads including Bipasha Basu, Lara Dutta, Esha Deol and Celina Jaitly might not star in the sequel.
The same source also revealed the makers are trying hard to reassemble the same team, but things are looking difficult as of now.
However, the terrific trio comprising Salman Khan, Fardeen Khan and Anil Kapoor, will be reuniting for the Anees Bazmi-helmed film.
The three stars will reportedly be playing triple roles. So far, the makers have not made an official announcement about the film’s female cast.
No Entry Mein Entry will be produced by Boney Kapoor and directed by Anees whose Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 was released just last month.
In an earlier interview, the director told the news portal that Salman had asked him to begin working on the film as he liked the script.
Pinkvilla quoted the filmmaker as saying: “My next film is No Entry Mein Entry.
“I met Salman recently and he has asked me to start work on that film. We had met for narration and he really liked the script.
“It’s a work in progress on No Entry Mein Entry. After writing over 50 films, my aim is to do good work and make good films going forward.
“No Entry Mein Entry is going to be a great entertainer.”
In another interview, Boney Kapoor suggested that the film will be “10 times funnier” than the first instalment.
No Entry is an official remake of the 2002 Tamil film Charlie Chaplin.
Salman Khan has a busy slate of upcoming films including Tiger 3 and Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali.
He is also set to make a cameo appearance in Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan.
Earlier in June, Salman Khan and his father Salim Khan reportedly received a death threat from the Lawrence Bishnoi gang.
Their security team found the letter outside their Mumbai home, near the Bandra Bandstand promenade, where Salim Khan goes for his routine morning jog.
Later, PTI had reported, quoting Maharashtra Home Department: “The gang was preparing to extort money from big businessmen and actors.”
Days later, Times Network reported that Lawrence Bishnoi had sent a contract killer to assassinate Salman.
