T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar, who co-produced ‘Ready’ along with Rajat Rawail, Nitin Manmohan, Krishan Kumar Dua and Sohail Khan, confirms that he is in talks with the superstar and Bazmee for a sequel to the movie and that it might materialize right after their forthcoming film ‘Bharat’ wraps up.

Taking the film on the floors will depend on his availability”.
Salman Khan romanced actress Asin in ‘Ready’. It will be interesting to see who is paired opposite him in ‘Ready 2’. Any suggestions, readers?
