- Baby 2 will be a sequel to Akshay's 2015 hit Baby
- Neeraj Pandey is working on Crack's script
- Naam Shabana, spin-off of Baby, released earlier this year
"We are still working on the schedule. We are not going on floors in November. We are wrapping work on Aiyaary by September-October. So, technically it will not be possible for us to jump onto another film. We are working on the script. I hope it will happen next year," Neeraj said.
In November 2016, Akshay Kumar had announced on Twitter about teaming up with Neeraj for Crack, which was slated to release on Independence Day this year. He had also shared the first look of the film which showed a broken pair of spectacles. But Crack got delayed and rumours of the film being shelved started doing the rounds.
"Sometimes the schedule does not work out or sometimes there is another reason for the film to not go on floors. It just happened that the slot when it was going to go on the floors, did not happen and then I began work on Aiyaary. Now we are working on matching our schedule," Neeraj said.
