Mumbai: Writer-director Anees Bazmee is all set to direct sequels of blockbuster comedies ‘Hera Pheri’ and ‘No Entry’ next year.
‘Hera Pheri 4’ will have Abhishek Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt, Nana Patekar while ‘No Entry mein Entry’ will have Salman, Anil Kapoor and Fardeen Khan, Bazmee told reporters.
The director said he is presently working on scripts of both movies which will go on floor after completion of his under production films Akshay-Sonam starrer ‘Thank You’ and ‘Ready’ featuring Salman and Asin in the lead.
He said he is in the process of finalising one more male lead for ‘Hera Pheri 4’ and the female leads are yet to be decided.
"The sequel will be bigger and better than the previous versions," Anees said.
He said in ‘No Entry mein Entry’ the tagline will be "is bar fine lagega". "Salman will have a major role in the sequel of ‘No Entry’ since his part in the original was not prominent," Anees added.
‘Hera Pheri 4’ is produced by Firoz Nadiadwala and ‘No Entry Mein Entry’ by Boney Kapoor.
He said ‘Thank You’ has been shot entirely in Canada and the last schedule is slated in January. Similary, ‘Ready’ will be shot in Mumbai this month.
Anees said he was not focussing only on comedies. ‘Thank You’ is a romantic comedy, Ajay Devgn starrer ‘Naam’ is a suspense triller, Harman Baweja-Genelia starrer ‘It`s my life’ is a love story and ‘Ready’ is a mainstream commercial comedy movie.
