Salman Khan's date book is pretty much vacant and "Sultan" is the only film he's working on right now. Although he has delayed Anees Bazmee's "No Entry Mein Entry" quite a few times owing to prior work commitments, the filmmaker revealed what the superstar could be looking at, whenever he decides to take the project up.

Talking to Absolute India News, the director said how it's a matter of time adding that the film would require a lot of writing as the leads will be seen playing a double roles. It will be interesting to see Salman, Anil Kapoor and Fardeen Khan up their game in the sequel.

"He loved the script of the No Entry Me Entry. We need a lot of roles because Salman, Anil and Fardeen will be seen playing double roles. Talks are going on between Boney ji and Salman as a producer and actor. Salman loved the script and he believes that this is even better than the previous one," the leading daily quoted him as saying.

In other news, the superstar has immersed himself in the preparation for the Ali Abbas Zafar directorial. A photo doing the rounds shows him pumping some extreme iron at a boxing ring. Wearing a hooded-jacket, he means business in this one.

While he is set to take the second schedule head-on, the leading lady is yet to be finalised. Mandana Karimi, Scarlett Wilson and Naaz are some of the names that have been associated with the film. Scheduled for an Eid 2016 release, "Sultan" may or may not clash with Shah Rukh Khan's "Raees".
