Salman Khan, the undoubted king of Eid releases, is working on a lot of meaty projects. At this point, he is busy shooting for Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat, while also being a part of Prabhudeva’s Dabangg 3 and Sohail Khan’s Sher Khan. Among all these high-profile releases, Aneez Bazmi has recently hinted that Ready 2, a sequel to the 2011 superhit, is in the works.
Bhushan Kumar, the Ready producer and a producer for Bharat, recently spoke to Mumbai Mirror, saying, “Bharat, my production with Atul Agnihotri, has just started and now we are in talks with Salman bhai and Anees bhai for Ready 2. We are just waiting for the script to get ready so that we can take it forward”.
Aneez Bazmi’s directorial debut Ready was a blockbuster and was adapted from an eponymous Telugu film which released in 2008. Apart from Salman Khan and Asin, the film also starred Paresh Rawal, Mahesh Manjrekar, Puneet Issar and Arya Babbar. When asked about the Ready 2 sequel, Bazmi said he is quite excited about the project. He added, “Bhushanji and I have been in talks for a few months now. He had also been interested in making Ready 2 for quite some time. Things are looking positive after our most recent meeting. I haven’t met Salman bhai to discuss dates and other details yet. Taking the film on the floors will depend on his availability.”
