Director Anees Bazmee, who is working on the sequels of "Welcome", "No Entry" and "Aankhen", says making the second part of these films is the most difficult job, primarily due to the expectations.

"I made 'No Entry' 10 years back and 'Welcome' 7 years back. I could have easily made their sequels immediately. I am not making sequels just for the heck of it. I make it only when we get the right script.

"It was the most difficult part. It is a business proposition, it helps in creating buzz... The goodwill of the first film helps in bringing audience to theatres," Bazmee told PTI.

Currently, Bazmee is looking forward to the release of "Welcome Back" starring John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar, Shiney Ahuja, Shruti Haasan and others.

"It feels great that everyone remembers the character of Majnu bhai and don Uday Shetty in 'Welcome'... People have loved them. They have become a brand... Iconic jodi. We have added more fun elements to their characters... We hope people will love their chemistry this time too," Bazmee said.

"It's because of the love and support that audience have given to 'Welcome' that we are coming up with a sequel.

There are lot of expectations from this multi-starrer film. We have made sure the characters are more lovable this time," he said.

Besides "Welcome Back", Bazmee is all excited for the sequel of "No Entry".

"There will be Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor and Fardeen Khan, besides them there will be ten heroines including some established..some new. I would like to cast Bipasha Basu for the sequel. Once we get the dates from Salman, we will start soon... Boney Kapoor (Producer) will decide accordingly," Bazmee said.

The sequel of "No Entry" will hopefully go on floors this year itself.

Bazmee will direct yet another sequel "Aankhen".

"We have Amitabh Bachchanji, John Abraham and Anil Kapoor. The basic plot of robbery by blind people will remain same, but we will have a new story to it," he said.

Bazmee will be teaming up with Abraham again for a comedy film, but he is not willing to share its details.
