After the successful sequel to “Dabangg”, Salman Khan’s sequel in “Kick 2” is in the pipeline as the first one broke all records of Salman’s earlier films but may take more time as director Sajid Nadiadwala is in two minds still.
In fact the original Telugu version of “Kick” featuring Ravi Teja is already haflway through the sequel in telugu to be released early next year.
Sources close to the project, Hindi “Kick”, directed by Sajid Nadiadwala, which is Salman’s highest grosser to date, told IANS that the story writings may soon begin for the sequel, than expected.
‘Kick’ has become the highest grosser of Salman’s career. It has so far accrued a total box-office collection of Rs.234 crore. That beats the earlier Salman starrer ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ which netted Rs.188 crore worldwide.
“Sajid is now being told by his distributors and friends to carry the story forward into a sequel because it makes a lot of business sense,” a source said.
Nadiadwala, producer of ‘Kick’ said:”It’s been a tremendous year for me. God has been kind. ‘Kick’ became far bigger than we imagined. And it’s all because of Salman’s star-power. I don’t know whether I can direct again for a while. My hands are full with productions. I don’t deny there is a growing demand to direct again. All I can say is, wait and watch,” said Nadiadwala.
Released in July this year, “Kick” also featured Randeep Hooda, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Jacqueline Fernandez.
