Yesterday, it was reported that Megastar Salman Khan is all set to return to his iconic ‘Prem‘ character for a comedy film with director Anees Bazmee. The reports even mentioned the producers of this ‘alleged’ comedy as Murad Khetani. Now, Anees himself opens up on the ongoing buzz.

Anees Bazmee who is the master of giving audience a laugh riot through his comedy films was trending yesterday for his ‘reportedly’ comedy film with the Ready actor. However, the director sarcastically rubbishes the news. Speaking to Bollywood Hungama, he said, “This is news to me. I am directing a film with Salman Khan, and I don’t even know about it? Perhaps those who wrote this report can inform me when I will be reaching the set and also when it gets released, so I can keep myself free…No seriously, there is no such talk.”

The Welcome director further recalls his long association with Salman Khan and expresses his wish to work with him again. He said, “We go back a long way. Salman Bhai did a guest appearance in my film No Entry 16 years ago. His character and the film were a hit. We then did Ready which was also a rage. Since then we haven’t had the chance to work together. I’d love to work with him again, but right now there is no project on the anvil.”

Earlier, there were some reports of Salman Khan roping in the sequel of No Entry i. e. No Entry Mein Entry but later on the Dabangg actor taken a back seat for not doing any film with producer Boney Kapoor because of his personal differences. When Anees Bazmee, who had directed No Entry, was quizzed about the same, he said, “That was unfortunate. Maybe some other time. Right now I am completely focused on completing Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 .We started before the pandemic. Our last schedule in Lucknow had to be called off in March 2020 because of the lockdown. We have resumed shooting on one set. Two more sets have to be put up. Insha Allah, we will complete Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 by next month.”

Well, we wish to see their collaboration deliberately. Share your thoughts on the same and stay tuned to us for more interesting updates.
