In an exclusive interview to PTI, Anees Bazmee said, "As far as the heroes are concerned, we have not changed the star cast - Salman, Anil and Fardeen will be part of the sequel. But they will have double roles. We would have as many as nine heroines in the film but I can't reveal much, as we are on the final stage of scripting. With double roles and nine heroines there will be more misunderstanding, confusion...all this will lead to a humorous situation."
Salman, Anil, Fardeen, Esha Deol, Lara Dutta and Bipasha Basu have played the lead roles in No Entry. The director said, "We might retain few actresses from the first part. There will be established heroines and one or two newcomers. But it is too early to confirm anything now. We will reveal their names hopefully by next month." Bazmee added, "All the nine heroines have a good and concrete role in the film. The script demands nine heroines...it is not like they are just there for the heck of it."
However, Anees Bazmee has planned to finish with his script in another 15-20 days. The director said, "As the film has a huge star cast so we want to lock the dates of all of them before we go on floors. The shooting will start either by the end of this year or early next year."
