Work is in full swing towards the pre-production of Kick. While Salman Khan would be beginning to shoot for it after he is through with his brother Sohail Khan’s film, producer Sajid Nadiadwala, who is also turning director with the film, is gearing up to get going as well. Since the film has some massive action sequences planned, there are elaborate preparations being put into place so that the actual shooting goes on smoothly.
Meanwhile hunt is also on for the leading lady. Though there has been a name or two been thrown around so far, an official confirmation is still awaited. One waits to see though that how does the character sketch of the female protagonist look like.
In the original Kick, the leading lady (Ileana D’Cruz) was there but didn’t quite participate in the action sequences. Since it was a Ravi Teja show all the way, it would be interesting to see if the girl has something substantial to do in the action department, especially with Salman Khan leading the show now.
“Yes, the leading lady would be integral to the film. You can’t have a film work just in isolation; everyone needs to have something substantial to offer, including the supporting actors. Sajid understands that and is ensuring that Kick is an all around affair,” informs a source.
Given the fact that an announcement around the leading lady is yet to be made by Sajid, one waits to see if there is someone athletic chosen for the part or the girl for be an ultra-glam woman who ends up igniting some heat on screen.
We tried contacting Sajid Nadiadwala but he was unavailable for comment.
