Ready is a success story and en route to be a huge accumulator at the box office. While for Salman Khan this is his second big money spinner in a row after Dabangg, for director Anees Bazmee the film’s success has helped in leaving behind the average run of Thank You and the poor show of No Problem. The actor and director are now all set to pair up again with No Entry Mein Entry.
“Though there were talks of differences between Salman and Anees, especially towards the later stage of the filming of Ready, none of it is impacting their professional relationship. They were committed to make the sequel of No Entry and now that Ready has worked in a big way, they are now firming up plans to bring the film on floors. It would be called No Entry Mein Entry“, informs a trade source.
It would be interesting to see whether Salman would be able to allocate dates for No Entry Mein Entry. After all he is currently busy shooting for Bodyguard and would soon be travelling across the globe for Ek Tha Tiger.
Adds another industry observer, “This is not all as he has family engagements to take care of as well. He is committed to start (tentatively titled) Sher Khan with Sohail Khan. Then there is also Dabangg with Arbaaz Khan in the pipeline. His calendar is choc-o-block.”
Anees Bazmee is undeterred though and already has a Plan B in place. Though he confirms that No Entry Mein Entry with Salman would indeed happen, he also adds that he is yet to pick and choose between No Entry Mein Entry and Hera Pheri 4 which has been commissioned to him.
“The final call is yet to be taken”, says Bazmee who is happy about being back in the big money business with Ready doing bumper business all over, “It could be either No Entry Mein Entry or Hera Pheri 4, the film I am committed to do for Firoz Nadiadwala.”
He promises though that this time around he would be cautious before starting any of the two films. “Even if everything is in place and star dates are available, I am sure I won’t be doing both films together. I have tried that earlier with Thank You and Ready and understand that it is an extremely difficult task. I would be doing only one film at a time.”
Interestingly, Hera Pheri 4 won’t feature either of the three original cast members – Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty or Paresh Rawal. Buzz in the air is that Sanjay Dutt, Abhishek Bachchan and Nana Patekar would be coming in as replacement though Bazmee refuses to confirm as of now.
