Salman Khan, Sanjay Leela Bhansali & Alia Bhatt’s romantic drama, Inshallah, has been shelved yesterday after the makers broke in the big news on their social media handles. Soon, Salman Khan hinted through a cryptic tweet that Kick 2 is on the cards and will witness Eid 2020 release. But looks like the speculations were true as Sajid Nadiadwala has it all sorted out.
It has all been revealed in a report by an entertainment portal Pinkvilla, as it states that Nadiadwala has it all sorted out with the scripting, production and the release. A source close to the development reveals, “The script of Kick 2 has finally been locked and Sajid and Salman have planned for an Eid 2020 release. Pre-production of the film is under way and as soon as Dabangg 3 wraps up this year, the schedule of Kick 2 will begin. The initial plan was to begin shooting of the sequel from 2020 but now it will most probably roll by the year end so that it releases on Eid 2020. Like Kick was an official remake of a Telugu film of the same name, the sequel is also said to be an official remake of a South movie but will take off from where Kick ended. Sajid plans to make Kick a franchise with Devi Lal Singh aka Devil as the central character. The filmmaker is personally part of the scripting process as he wants a fabulous script for his friend Salman.”
On why all of a sudden an Eid release, the source further reveals, “Sajid and Salman had been trying to crack the right sequel for Salman and came up with it only in the last few weeks. Initially, the Kick 2 dates were with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for Inshallah, but now that the project is not happening, Kick 2 shooting will go ahead in those dates, so everything is being rushed. Sajid and Salman share a great rapport and Kick 2 will definitely be complete by Eid 2020.”
