Salman Khan's fans are in for some disappointment. The "Sultan" actor confirmed that "No Entry Mein Entry" isn't happening as of now.

The superstar's dates were a major reason why the project witnessed repeated delays. However, the makers hadn't left hope. A few months ago, director Anees Bazmee told the Press Trust of India that the team was waiting for Salman's calendar to get relatively free.

"I had narrated the script to Salman (Khan) and he had liked it very much. But since he is playing a double role, we need a lot more dates of his. That is the only issue. Salman (Khan) is a very busy man these days. So it is between him and my producer Boney Kapoor to decide and lock the dates," the agency quoted the filmmaker as saying.

In other news, Salman has his date book for the year filled out. After "Sultan" hits the screens on July 6, the actor will begin shooting Kabir Khan's "Tubelight." It's an emotional story in a political backdrop. Reports suggest the team is looking at roping in a Chinese actress. The film is scheduled to arrive on Eid next year.

The actor will then take up Rajkumar Santoshi's untitled project, making it their second project after a gap of 22 years. The film is expected to be out on Christmas 2017. Apparently, the director is hoping to rope in Katrina Kaif for this one because he wants it score at the box-office. His last directorial — "Phata Poster Nikhla Hero" — didn't quite shine at the ticket window.
