This is the best news possible for all the Salman Khan fans! Next year July 27 (Eid) Kick will release. All those naysayers who thought the film had run into some problems with the actor not shooting for it in London will have to eat their words.
Says a source, “Salman will be shooting for Kick (produced and directed by Sajid Nadiadwala) on especially constructed sets in Mumbai come September. Though the shooting got slightly postponed because of the actor’s visa problems all that has been sorted out now.
When he and Sajid had a chat about it last week, both were very clear that they wanted an Eid release. 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.
This year his Mental couldn’t be completed before that so Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express grabbed the date. Sajid and Salman decided that they will complete Kick at breakneck speed so that the film can release on Eid.”
Next year the star will have three releases on special events — brother Sohail Khan’s Mental on Republic Day, Kick on Eid and his third film (an untitled one directed by Prabhudheva) has been scheduled for a Diwali or Christmas release.
