"I am waiting for Salman Khan's dates. He is packed with his prior commitments. By the first week of January 2013 we will be meeting Salman and confirm the dates," Bazmee told IANS.
While Salman, Fardeen and Anil will reprise their roles, the leading ladies are yet to be finalised.
"Nothing has been finalised yet. Things will fall in place only once I get Salman's dates. So I will finalise the leading ladies after that," he added.
The director hopes his film will go on floors in the middle of 2013.
"It is too early to comment on that right now. I believe the film should go on floors by the mid of 2013," he added.
