According to DNA's source, the sequel to action-comedy "Son of Sardaar" will be made on a grand scale, something along the lines of "The Expendables." The insider elaborated that Ajay is making sure that the script does justice to the five-hero project.

"While he is in talks with Salman and Sanjay, two more heroes will also be finalised. Ajay is making sure that all the five major characters are given equal footage in the script and screenplay. Salman is very excited about the script and also keen to co-produce it with Ajay, who will direct and produce the film. All the actors will sport beards and a turban as they are from the Sikh regiment," the daily quoted the source as saying.
