Director Anees Bazmee who had directed No Entry and will now be helming the sequel No Entry Mein Entry said that even though Bipasha Basu’s role in the original ended, he is re-working on the script to include her in the cast. “I met Bipasha casually some time back and like me she was also keen to work in the sequel. So I spent 20 days rewriting the script to include her, and her character will be quite different from her earlier role. Though she has yet to sign the film, she will most likely be doing the film,” said Bazmee.
Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor and Fardeen Khan have been finalised for the film which will have 10 leading ladies. Asked whether Chitrangada
Singh and Esha Gupta are on board, he said no one has been signed as yet.
“We are in talks with many actresses,” said Bazmee.
