Salman’s chick list for No Entry Mein Entry
Makers of No Entry Mein Entry chalk up a tentative inventory of probable actresses so that Khan can take his pick.The search for the leading ladies (and there’s quite a handful of them in this one) for Anees Bazmee’s No Entry Mein Entry is still on. The filmmaker had earlier confirmed that there will be nine female leads in his film opposite the three actors, all of whom will have a double role.
Later, he had said that Bipasha Basu was being considered for a very special 10th female role. But the names, as it happens, have not been decided yet. And Mirror has learnt, that it’s because the makers are still chalking up a list, an advert for which would read something like this:
Wanted: Ten leading ladies for Anees Bazmee’s next, No Entry Mein Entry.
Qualification: A-lister who preferably shares a good equation with Salman Khan. After all, it is the actor who will take the final call on the ten women who will get to star in the sequel to the 2005 comedy hit No Entry.
In fact, when we asked the filmmaker why it was taking so much time to finalise the names of the ten ladies, he reiterated the actor’s diktat. “It can’t be anything but the best girls. Just because there’re ten girls in our film we can’t fill up the roles with whoever is available. It has to be established names in all the roles,” said Anees and added, “This is a very special film for Salman. It’s his first double role since Judwaa and the first sequel of his career. So everything has to be twice as grand as No Entry. We haven’t been able to decide on any of the girls as yet. Because we want only the best. We’re in the process of drawing up a list of possibilities. Then we’ll take a call.”
Needless to say, the applicants would be many considering Salman’s box office record in the recent past. And though the filmmaker refused to give us any names that are on his list, we decided to chalk up one of our own…
Reason: Many – 1. Ek Tha Tiger and its multiple digit box office collection. 2. Her equation with Salman (He gifted her a new car for her birthday, remember?). 3. She has already worked with Anees in Welcome, which was a hit.
Reason: Post Heroine, it would be nice to see her in a lighthearted comedy. She is a great friend of Salman and self admittedly can’t say ‘No’ to him. Also, she would want to build a film bank for her career post marriage.
Reason: Reportedly she can’t work with one Khan any longer. So, landing a role with the other would be nice. Also, she has been trying hard to patch up with Salman for a long time.
Reason: A blockbuster Dabangg with the actor.
Reason: After a string of romances, a comedy would be a fresh change for the actress.
Reason: She has said that she wants to work in a film with Salman. And after her performance in Cocktail, a comedy would be a good change.
Reason: Her father Anil Kapoor is already in the film. A father-daughter first venture may work for the film.
Reason: She has several 100-crore-films to her name. Ready – Anees’ last with Salman and the actress was one of them.
Reason: She was a part of Ready too
Reason: Her first break (Sher Khan) is all thanks to Salman. Why not the second?
