Model-actress Lara Dutta is keen to return on the sets of “No Entry” sequel.
“ No Entry Mein Entry”, a sequel to the hit 2005 comedy, will be directed by Anees Bazmee and produced by Boney Kapoor. It is expected to go on the floors by the end of this year.
“I have been waiting to go to the sets of ‘No entry’ for the last four years. I am waiting for Boney Kapoor to actually show me the sets and then I will believe that it has started shooting,” said Dutta, who was in the capital to walk the ramp for a jewelery fashion week.

Anees Bazmee is on an unprecedented high. Not only is he ready to go on the floor with his sequel to the 2005 hit comedy No Entry, he is all set to do a sequel to the 1993 hit Aankhen which featured Govinda and Chunky Pandey as two wastrels and their antics across blunder land.
The sequel entitled Aankhen Chaar will feature the same main characters as well as the same supporting characters, though some of the actors would be different.
Informs Anees, “Actually the delay in the sequel to No Entry Mein Entry gave me a chance to not only polish up the script of the film, but it also gave me an opportunity to write the Aankhen sequel.”
Anees is kicked by the fact that Aankhen is remembered to this day. “It was released in 1993. Audiences haven’t forgotten it. So the producer Pahlaj Nihalaniji and I thought a sequel was a good idea. Fortunately for me, I had written Aankhen (though I hadn’t directed it). So I know the characters very well. It was easy for me to carry them forward.”
Though the writer-director is loath to reveal too many details, he does let out that Aankhen Chaar would have some of the characters playing double role. The same would be true of No Entry Mein Entry where Salman Khan and some other characters would have double roles.
Promises Anees, “Though both are comedies and both have characters in double roles I can assure you there would be no similarity between the sequels to No Entry and Aankhen. Also, there would be no hint of vulgarity in my films at all. No double meanings, except the title Aankhen Chaar which refers to the double roles for some of the characters and also the process of falling in love which is often give the definition of ‘aankhen chaar hona’. That apart, I want both the sequels to be clean comedies that a father can comfortably watch with his daughter. In any case Salmanbhai has a clean image. He wouldn’t bear any innuendos. So we’re on the same page on that. This is first double role since Judwaa and we want his younger fans to love the film as much as Judwaa.”
Rubbishing reports that Salman Khan has decided to move forward plans of doing the No Entry sequel, producer Boney Kapoor confirms that the superstar is all set to begin work on film soon.
Says Boney, “Salman will be doing his brother Sohail Khan’s film. Then he will go into my film and Sajid Nadiadwala’s film Kick.”
MUMBAI: The ‘Mr India’ sequel which would bring together Anil Kapoor and Sridevi along with Boney’s son Arjun Kapoor and a new girl is on hold. Admits Boney, “At the moment my complete attention is on starting the ‘No Entry’ sequel.”
Apparently Salman Khan agreed to do the sequel ‘No Entry Mein Entry’ only after Boney and Anees agreed to some radical changes in the script suggested by Salman.
For the first time in recent years Salman will shoot for two films simultaneously—Boney’s ‘No Entry Mein Entry’ and Sajid Nadiadwala’s ‘Kick’—from June 2013.
Says Boney, “From now till June when ‘No Entry Mein Entry’ starts our focus would be entirely on that project.”

Filmmaker Anees Bazmee, who is gearing up for the sequel to No Entry, says he is waiting to get actor Salman Khan’s date for the movie, which is likely to go on floors in 2013.
“No Entry Mein Entry is my priority right now. I am waiting to get Salman Khan’s date for this film. The film will, in all probability, go on floors in early 2013,” Bazmee told IANS.
The director denied he had roped in Lara Dutta, Bipasha Basu and Celina Jaitley as the leading ladies for the sequel.
“It is not true. I have never said I have roped in any leading lady for this film. I have not finalised the leading ladies yet. Once I finalise them, I will let you know.”
Earlier, Bazmee had said the movie will feature nine female actors.
As far as the lead actors are concerned, the sequel will see Salman, Fardeen Khan and Anil Kapoor again after the 2005 comic riot No Entry.
The director says soon after No Entry Mein Entry, he will start working Welcome Back, a sequel to 2007 movie Welcome.
“My script is also ready for Welcome Back,” said Bazmee.
