‘Kick’ is in news and with Salman Khan too announcing that it would be the second film he would begin working once he is through shooting for the Sohail Khan affair, there is a definite sense of urgency amongst the makers to get the groundwork in place in quick time.
For starters, the film’s screenplay is being tightened in a big way so that the Hindi version turns out to be much more universally appealing when compared to the Telugu original.
This isn’t all as Salman is in constant know how of the film’s progress and is giving more than just a glace or two to the material which is being put together.
“For someone like Salman who has given four back to back 100 crore superhits and is all set for another with ‘Dabangg 2’ before ‘Kick’ goes on floor, everything needs to be accounted for in a major way before a single word is put on paper for his next”, says an insider close to Sajid Nadiadwala who is producing as well as directing the film.
While Chetan Bhagat is re-writing the film’s screenplay, Sajid is making sure that technically too the film is top notch and the locations that come on screen are not just lavish but also un-seen.
As for the action sequences, they are expected to be trend setter and notches above the kind seen in ‘Dhoom’ series or for that matter Salman’s own ‘Ek Tha Tiger’.
Says a source, “Still, everyone is making sure that while audience get to see the Salman that they love, they make something fresh as well. They have seen Salman do things but then they also want freshness. That’s the kind of ‘kick’ they need. Pun intended!”
