“I Am Doing A Film With Salman? That’s News To Me,” Anees Bazmi Rubbishes Pinkvilla Report

 The  anxiety to  attract eyeballs has  portals keeling over with enthusiastic  fabrications, the latest being a report  on Pinkvilla which says Salman  Khan is all set to be directed in a comedy film by Anees Bazmi.

The report even  informs us that Salman will be named  Prem  in the  alleged  comedy . It also names the alleged  producers   of  the comedy.

 However when I contacted  Anees  he  was taken back by Pinkvilla’s  claims.  “This is  news to me. I am directing a film with Salman Khan, and I don’t even know  about it? Perhaps those who wrote  this report can  inform me when I will be reaching the set and also  when it gets released, so I can keep myself free…No seriously, there is no such talk.”

Anees fondly recalls his  long association with  Salman. “We  go back a long way.  Salman Bhai did a  guest appearance in my  film  No Entry 16 years ago. His  character  and the film were  a hit. We then did Ready which  was  also  a rage.Since then  we haven’t had  the chance to  work together. I’d love to work with him again, But right now there is  no project on  the  anvil.”

Incidentally  all attempts to  rope in Salman Khan for the  sequel to No Entry(No Entry Mein Entry) failed  as  Salman refuses to work with  producer Boney Kapoor due to  personal  differences.

Says Anees, “That   was unfortunate.Maybe some other time. Right now  I am completely focused on completing Bhool Bhulaiya 2 .We started before the pandemic. Our last schedule  in Lucknow  had to be called  off in March 2020 because of  the lockdown. We have resumed shooting on one set. Two more sets  have to be put up. Insha Allah, we will  complete Bhool Bhilaiya 2  by next month.”

Anees is  all praise  for his  Bhool Bhulaiya 2 ‘s   leading man Kartik Aaryan. “His  comic  timing is going to delight his  fans. He’s  got what it takes  to be a complete  actor.  Logon ko hasana  aasan kaam nahin hai(it’s  not easy  to make people laugh). I think we’ve  managed  it  in Bhool Bhulaiya 2.”
