Don’t be surprised if we tell you that Salman Khan, by far the busiest Bollywood star, has no dates to spare till 2018. At least that’s what we infer after reports suggest that the star, who is currently shooting for Tubelight, has given Sajid Nadiadwala, director of his 2014 hit Kick, dates only next year to begin work on the film’s sequel.
If reports are to be believed, Khan couldn’t spare any dates for Nadiadwala this year because he’s busy with Tiger Zinda Hai and Tubelight. Nadiadwala is also busy with three of his projects this year: Rangoon, Baaghi 2 and Judwaa 2.
Salman has already delivered three hits after Kick: Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Prem Rattan Dhan Payo and Sultan. And he would be hoping for a good show at the box office with Kick 2 as well.
According to sources, “Sajid Nadiadwala 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. All the other characters would be different.” The music of the film will be composed by Himesh Reshammiya, which has given birth to a few more speculations that Iulia Vantur, Salman’s rumoured girlfriend, will be lending her voice for one of the songs in the film. Recently, the singer-actor launched a song with Iulia Vantur. According to revelations of sources by an entertainment portal, “Iulia could sing a romantic number in Kick 2. She had already worked with Himesh for the single Every Night and Day from his album. She has been working really hard on her accent as this could be her first Hindi song.”
Salman’s Kick (2014) was a huge hit and of course, the second one is expected to be the same. The film is a remake of Telugu film with the same title, starring Ravi Teja and Ileana D’Cruz. And as the speculations about the film have been rife since ever, the fight for leading lady is on. Salman will also appear in Varun Dhawan’s Judwaa 2, directed by David Dhawan.
On the work front, the actor has wrapped up Kabir Khan’s Tubelight after which he will start shooting for his first dance drama with Remo D’souza.
