Anees Bazmee


If we talk about upcoming sequels in Bollywood, nobody can deny that No Entry 2 is one of the most-anticipated sequels cinephiles have been waiting for with bated breath. After years of wait and an inordinate delay, the sequel seems set to take off soon.

The script of the sequel is ready and the casting process is expected to begin as soon as producer Boney Kapoor gives the go ahead to director Anees Bazmee. “We will make No Entry sequel. I have written a good script, much bigger than the last one. It is a good script and one of the best films I have written so far,” Bazmee tells an Indian publication.

The filmmaker goes on to add, “But now, it depends on Boneyji to take the call about how we will take the film forward. In No Entry, there were three actors but the new script has six actors in double role. There will be 10 girls instead of four.”

Starring Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Fardeen Khan, Lara Dutta, Bipasha Basu, Esha Deol and Celina Jaitley, No Entry was the highest grossing film of the year 2005. It still garners huge viewership on its television premieres.

When asked if he would like to retain the original cast in the sequel, Anees Bazmee says, “I want the same cast in the sequel. I have done 11 films with Anil and Salman is always fun to work with. Fardeen did a good job in the film with all other actors.”

Well, it will surely be interesting to see who all make it to the final cast of No Entry 2. Meanwhile, director Anees Bazmee is busy with the promotions of his next directorial Pagalpanti. Headlined by John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, Ileana D’Cruz, Kriti Kharbanda and Urvashi Rautela, Pagalpanti releases on 22nd November. Boney Kapoor, on the other hand, is busy with his next production venture Maidaan.
