Akshay Kumar to replace Salman Khan in No Entry 2. Rumor mills suggest that Akshay Kumar might replace Salman Khan in No Entry Sequel – No Entry Mein Entry.
As per Anees Bazmee, the sequel will have triple roles for each of the lead male actors. He had also said that there will be 10 heroines in the film. While the original part featured Anil Kapoor, Fardeen Khan, Bipasha Basu, Lara Dutta, Esha Deol and Celina Jaitly, the second part might have a fresh cast. Although Anil Kapoor might be retained in the film
Salman Khan, who is currently juggling between Tiger Zinda Hai promotions and Race 3 shoot, has a very busy year ahead. Post wrapping Remo D’Souza’s Race 3, Salman will start the shoot of Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat. With this kind of a hectic schedule, we doubt if Salman Khan can give dates for the No Entry sequel. On the other hand, Akshay Kumar is known to wrap up his films within two to three months in recent times.
Akshay Kumar is currently shooting for Gold which is slated to release on 15th August 2018. He will start shooting for Karan Johar’s Kesari once he wraps up Gold. Akshay Kumar will be next seen in R. Balki’s Padman which is slated to release on 26th January 2018.
Akshay Kumar recently hired Salman Khan’s ex manager Reshma Shetty to manage his work much like how she used to manage the work of Salman Khan. There are rumors in trade that Akshay Kumar will now do only 2-3 films a year. In 2016, he had 3 releases. In 2017, he had only 2 releases. In 2018, he will be seen in three releases as of now – Padman, Robot 2.0 and Gold.
Salman Khan’s next release is Tiger Zinda Hai. Salman Khan wrapped up the film on Saturday where he was shooting for some patchwork scenes. Directed by Sultan director Ali Abbas Zafar, Tiger Zinda Hai stars Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Angad Bedi and Paresh Rawal in pivotal roles and it has been produced by Aditya Chopra under the banner of Yash Raj Films. The film is scheduled to release on 22nd December 2017.
Official Confirmation awaited regarding the same.
