Mumbai, (IANS) Comedy king David Dhawan has planned a sequel to his hit "Partner" with Salman and Govinda again, but will begin shooting only some time next year.

"It will be a kind of sequel to 'Partner'. Everyone wants to see the two of them back together and we can't disappoint the audience," Dhawan told IANS.

But in the meantime Dhawan plans to take a sabbatical. "I'll continue to do my scripting but there will be no direction for a while. I've been working very hard," he said.Dhawan said: "It's been a while since I've been making films back-to-back. I need to rejuvenate myself. When 'Nach Baliye' was offered to me I just grabbed it as a chance to move away from direction for a while. This is my first television assignment and my first acting assignment.

"Salman Khan and Govinda introduced me on 'Nach Baliye'. What better beginning to my acting career could I hope for? Now I'm completely consumed by the whole process of watching these young people dancing. We've all become like an extended family. When a couple leaves the show it's heartbreaking for me."
