Director Anees Bazmi is caught in a peculiar deadlock. His 2005 hit comedy No Entry is all set to go into an encore. But the sequel is caught in the line of fire between producer Boney Kapoor and Salman Khan who are not on the best of terms.
Apparently Salman has decided to go ahead with a sequel to No Entry without Boney regardless of Boney being the producer of the original film.
Speaking candidly on the issue Anees who wrote and directed No Entry says, “As far as I am concerned No Entry is Boney Kapoor’s production. It is only right that I make the film for him. Boney and I have been working together since 2007 when I directed my first film for him. It was entitled It’s My Life. It was a remake of a Telugu hit Bommarillu. It fetured Harman Baweja and Genelia d’Souza. It was meant to be Kapil Sharma’s film debut. But the film never got released. Then we did No Entry and have remained friends since then.”
Anees confesses he’s also very close to Salman. “ Salman is also a very dear friend. He has heard the script of the No Entry Sequel.It’s entitled No Entry Mein Entry. And Salman loved it.”
Anees is hoping for a miracle to bring the estranger producer-star together again. “Ideally I’d like to direct No Entry Mein Entry with Boneyji and Salmanbhai as producer and the lead actor.If that doesn’t happen I’m clueless as to how to go about this.”
For those who came in late, Salman and Boney had a fall-out over the latter’s son Arjun’s relationship with the former’s former sister-in-law Malaika Arora.
