Boney's unit in Chennai awaits Salman's return before shooting resumes for the film, which was earlier titled 'Wanted Dead & Alive'.
Salman, in and out of various controversies throughout 2007, has managed to complete Kapoor's film in almost record time.
'I always had full faith that he would,' said Kapoor emotionally. 'We never panicked because of Salman's troubles. We knew he would make it.'
The director is also enthusiastic about making the sequel to 'No Entry' in 2008. 'With 'Welcome' doing so well, I'd like to bring back the 'No Entry' characters.'
Also on the anvil is a vehicle for Kapoor's wife Sridevi.
'We're working on it. But it has to be something that takes Sri beyond where she left her career.'
The little appearance that Sridevi made in 'Halla Bol' was a teaser trailer for the audience.
'We did that only because the producer requested us to do a scene where we give Ajay Devgan an award. We didn't even want it to be written about.'ALSO READ: Salman Khan on his 'superstar' label: "Nothing about me is superstarry, I just want to...."
