The bhaijan of Bollywood Salman Khan was completely missing in 2013. Except for his upcoming TV show Bigg Boss7 which starts at September 15, he was absent from the big screen where he truly belongs.
But with his latest confession and locking the date July 27, 2014 Eid release for Kick, the directorial debut of Sajid Nadiadwala, Salman Khan promises to be back with a bang.
For the past several years, Salman’s Wanted (2009), Dabangg (2010), Bodyguard (2011) and Ek Tha Tiger (2012) have always released on Eid and they have all been blockbusters and the biggest hits of those years.
Earlier it was reported that Salman, who was to join the crew of Sajid Nadiadwala's Kick in Glasgow, has not been able to leave India as his visa was rejected.
While no reasons have been given for the denial, it is being speculated that the hit-and-run case against the actor may have been behind the decision.
Sajid and Salman decided that they will complete Kick at breakneck speed so that the film can release on Eid.
