That Salman Khan is one of the most bankable actors in the industry, there is no doubt. Producers are known to fall over themselves while attempting to get him to sign their movies. But the recent series of venets and the spate of bad luck on the actor's part seems to have affected several projects which were in the pipeline.
The first bit of shocking news was when Salman decided to leave Karan Johar's Shuddhi. While the actor was able to complete shooting for Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo after acquiring bail, he is yest to give the dates for No Entry Mein Entry to producer Boney Kapoor, though he has committed to the film. In the meantime, Salman has also gone ahead and announced his involvement in projects like Sultan and Kick 2.
Thye sequel for the 2005 hit film No Entry has been in the charts for a long time now. At first the chosen star cast wasnt in place, but director Anees Bazmee has now managed to get everyone together. According to a report in bollywoodlife.com, producer Boney Kapoor has said, "Whether Salman is a part of the film or not, only he will be able to say. My script is ready, my actors are ready and everything is in place. We will start anytime he says yes."
The producers are now not sure if they want to continue the film without Salman or even wait for him indefinitely, but the originla script was surely planned with Salman Khan in a pivotal role.
While we'll just have to wait and see how things turn out, it would have been a welcome change to see the actor in a full-fledged comedy!
