While speculation about the sequel to the 2014 blockbuster Kick has been building up for two years now, it can now be confirmed that Kick 2 will finally go on floors in 2018.
Says a source close to Sajid, “He has finished writing 80 per cent of Kick 2. He has sounded Salman out about the script and the actor loves it. They’ve decided to work on the film from the middle of 2018.”
The same source goes on to inform that though Salman would play the same character that he played in Kick, “All the other characters would be different.” And that means, no Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Randeep Hooda and no Jacqueline Fernandez.
Says the source, “Kick 2 would’ve happened in 2017 itself. But this year Salman is busy with Kabir Khan’s Tubelight and Ali Abbas Zafar’s Tiger Zinda Hai. Sajid has three releases lined up in 2017. First, there’s Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon, followed by Sabbir Khan’s Baaghi 2 and Judwaa 2. So, they’ve decided to work together in 2018.”
