Anees Bazmee opens about the ongoing rift between brothers Anil Kapoor and Boney Kapoor.

The feud between Boney Kapoor and his brother Anil Kapoor has taken over the news for a while now. Anil Kapoor, who featured in the superhit comedy No Entry alongside Salman Khan and Fareedan Khan, is not a part of the franchise’s next movie. Anees Bazme, in a recent interview, said that he is friends with both the brothers and is well aware about Anil being unhappy with him not being a part of the sequel.

“I have worked a lot with Anil ji. Anil ji was very much involved in No Entry not just as an actor. He would always ask, ‘Kya karna hai?’, recalled the Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 director. He called No Entry very much ‘Anil’s film,’” justifying that it was natural for the actor to get upset because he was not cast in the sequel. “He did a great job and people loved his character, so naturally he will feel, ‘Main kyun nahin hoon is film ke andar ,'” said Anees.

However, the filmmaker chooses to stay away from talking to the brothers and trying to nullify the situation. “As far as I know, the two brothers have immense love for each other. Inke beech ki jo narazgi hai woh kuch dino ki ho sakti hai. Mujhe lagta hai yeh dono aapas mein nipat lenge aur aapas mein baat cheet karlenge, mujhe in dono se baat karne ki koi zaroorat nahin haiInko kisi aur ki zaroorat nahin hai ,” he expressed.

Earlier in an Interview with Zoom Entertainment Boney Kapoor shared, “Before I could tell my brother Anil about the No Entry sequel and the cast involved, he got angry as the news was already leaked. It was unfortunate that it was leaked. I know he wanted to be a part of the No Entry sequel, but there was no space. I wanted to explain why I did what I did.”

Anees has often been asked if Arjun Kapoor was cast in No Entry 2 because he was Boney’s son. Anees justified Boney’s choice saying he believed that Arjun whom he has also directed in Mubarakan was perfect for the role, even though Boney Kapoor took all the major decisions including the casting.

“Arjun was not cast because he was the producer’s son,” said Anees, adding, “I worked with him in Mubarakan and he did a good job. He is a good actor who can perform, but unfortunately, the film didn’t work. When I worked with Fardeen Khan in No Entry, people questioned my decision. When people asked me, ‘Main Fardeen ke saath kyun kaam kar raha hoon,’ I answered, ‘Why not?’ So, if people ask me why Arjun, ‘My answer would be why not Arjun?’ He has acted well in a couple of other films, too. He perfectly fits into the character, and I am sure people will love his work. I said the same thing about Fardeen.”

The director also clarified the rumours about the film stalling, “We are making No Entry 2 and Boney (Kapoor) sahab told me that there is some trouble, and we need to make a fresh film. And I feel Anil Kapoor getting angry is justified because he was the main hero of No Entry (2005). He put in a lot of hard work in that film, not only as an actor, but he walked shoulder to shoulder while making the film. But when we talk about him being angry for not being cast in the film… Anil ji and Boney ji are brothers and I have seen their love. So, him being upset will be for how long is a different matter. But they aren’t fighting over it. They can’t fight. He has the right to be upset if you consider someone as yours and if you think they have done something wrong, you have the right to be upset. I respect Anil ji and Boney ji equally,” Anees shared in a conversation with Siddharth Kannan.

When asked if Anil Kapoor called him to show his disappointment about not being cast in No Entry 2 the director shared, “No, Anil ji is doing such fabulous work today, he is doing so many films, even after all these years there are so many out there who want to work with him. So, for him, doing one film or not doing it is not a big deal. Yes, there can be emotional reasons because Boney ji is his brother, and he is very attached to No Entry. I can only think of these two reasons, otherwise he doesn’t have a lack of work.”

No Entry 2, directed by Anees Bazmee and produced by Boney Kapoor, features Arjun Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and Diljit Dosanjh in lead roles.
