It was long ago that Bhushan Kumar had announced a film with Anees Bazmee as director and
Salman Khan in the lead but it was only recently that the project was officially announced. Reason: They were looking out for a suitable subject. And when Bazmee and Kumar told Khan about their idea to re-make Ready in Hindi with the same name, the latter immediately fixed a bulk date.
Khan was so gung-ho about the project that he’s put Partner 2 on the back burner. In fact, he wanted to start shooting in April but Bazmee is to begin shooting his next, Thank You. So they’ve decided to start their new venture in June.
Ready will be the first-ever Salman Khan project that will be made in ten months. Considering Salman’s confidence in the project, Kumar has even announced that it will be released in April 2011.
