Salman Khan has reportedly asked filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala to pay an additional Rs 5 crore for his upcoming film, Kick.
And what’s the reason behind this sudden price rise? It is said that Salman was miffed with Nadiadwala for ignoring him for all of his big films in the last five years. Nadiadwala had instead chosen Akshay Kumar for his films like Housefull and Kambakkht Ishq. Finding no other alternative, he is said to have coughed up the amount so that ‘Kick’, also starring Sonakshi Sinha, could go on floors on schedule in September.
It was only after Salman’s spate of successes like Wanted and Dabangg that Sajid offered him a film. Salman and Sajid had a successful team with films like Judwaa (1997), Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega (2000) and Mujhse Shaadi Karogi (2004). It is said that they had a fall-out during Jaan-E-Mann (2006).
Now is this just ‘kick’ing off the publicity for Salman’s films or a real hefty bill!
