Filmmaker Anees Bazmee says he is ready with the script of No Entry Mein Entry. Bazmee said that he was waiting for Salman Khan to sign on for the project.

The Dabangg actor is currently wrapping up Sultan, which is set for an Eid 2017 release. After Sultan, the 50-year-old actor plans to work on a Kabir Khan-directorial before reuniting with Sooraj Barjatya for an untitled project. Salman Khan is also in talks for yet another film with his brother Sohail Khan and director Atul Agnihotri.

Bazmee says that Salman, who will be seen playing a double role, had approved the script of No Entry Mein Entry but said that the project would be stalled unless the superstar confirmed his dates for the film. He told PTI:

"I had narrated the scrip to Salman (Khan) and he had liked it very much. But since he is playing a double role, we need a lot more dates of his. That is the only issue. Salman (Khan) is a very busy man these days. So it is between him and my producer Boney Kapoor to decide and lock the dates."

No Entry Mein Entry, the sequel to the 2005 blockbuster No Entry, will also feature Anil Kapoor and Fardeen Khan in double roles. None of the female leads for the multi-starrer have been finalised yet.

Bazmee, who has directed movies like Welcome, Singh is Kinng and Ready, is currently scripting his next, Aankhen 2 - the sequel to the 2002 heist thriller Aankhen.

While the first installment was directed by Vipul Shah and starred Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role, reports claim the sequel might star John Abraham along with Amitabh Bachhan. However, Bazmee has clarified that nothing had been finalised yet.

"I am still writing the film. I believe I am a writer first, then a director. I am yet to decide on who will be in it. John (Abraham) is a dear friend so if I ask him, he will be more than happy to be a part of the film. But nothing has been finalised."
