Salman Khan's capability to deliver blockbusters has landed him with a packed date book, which may be the reason behind him walking out of projects lately.

Word has it that after opting out of Karan Johar's "Shuddhi",  the superstar has taken the exit door from Boney Kapoor's "No Entry Mein Entry".

According to a Bollywood Life report, Salman has been doing a bunch of films and playing varied roles. The actor hasn't done full-fledged comedy ever since his career saw a big jump.

The makers are reportedly not sure whether to kick-start the film or wait until he has dates to spare.

Kapoor, on the other hand, said his team is ready wtih all that's needed and will start once the star gives the film a go ahead.

While the "No Entry Mein Entry" team appears confident, there are slim chances of Salman being able to give it time. He is yet to finish portions of Sooraj Barjatya's "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", after which he needs to take up Yash Raj Films' "Sultan".

Since the movie requires him to play a 40-year-old boxer, he would have to achieve a lean look. This means, the actor needs to follow a strict workout regimen and be observant about his diet.

A few days ago, there were chatters if the film would be shelved altogether, considering it has been delayed twice.

"Salman will need to block out months for his preparation for the role in Sultan. It will be a physically challenging role to play and will need rigorous training. He has not given dates for No Entry Mein Entry. Since the film has already been delayed twice before, the gossip mongers are already talking about how it is shelved," a source said, according to The Times of India.
