Is Arjun Kapoor replacing Salman Khan in the ‘No Entry’ sequel?
In the year 2005 there came a comedy film that made us laugh until our stomach hurt; it was ‘No Entry’. Starring Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Fardeen Khan, Bipasha Basu, Lara Dutta and Celina Jaitly, the film was directed by Anees Bazmee and produced by Boney Kapoor. The film was a success and hence, the makers decided to make a sequel to ‘No Entry’.
There were reports about Salman Khan and Anil Kapoor coming together for the sequel too, but in the latest reports are to go by, the collaborate may not happen. Reportedly, Arjun Kapoor may replace Salman in the second installment which is tentatively titled, ‘No Entry Main Entry’.
Confirming the news of Arjun replacing Salman, a source close to a leading daily said, “The movie is currently in the scripting stage. But the story is such that it requires a new cast. Though several names are being discussed, Boney is keen that Arjun leads the pack. Given the success of ‘Mubarakan’, Boney feels director Anees Bazmee and Arjun make a strong team.”
The star cast of the the sequel to ‘No Entry’ is yet to be finalized. The sequel too will be directed by Anees Bazmee and produced by Boney Kapoor. The makers were keen on signing Salman Khan and did wait for him too, but due to his packed schedule they were left with no choice but to find a replacement.
In an interview with PTI, Anees Bazmee had said, “Salman is a fantastic actor, he is a star. If he is part of the film then it is really very good, but if he doesn’t want to do it then we will have to think of another actor with all plus and minus points and accordingly work towards it (story). Whenever Salman is part of a film it does benefit (the film).”
