Looks like Salman Khan’s next film has received a shot in the arm. Sources close to the project say upon the star’s insistence, the film will now go on the floors next month itself instead of the initial schedule of October or November.
The film, to be helmed by first-time director Sajid Nadiadwala, will begin its first schedule from July 24 onwards. And incidentally, Randeep Hooda has been roped in for a plum role in the film.
A source says, “Kick was supposed to start towards the end of the year. However, a few days ago Salman called Sajid and told him that the film would now go on the floors in July instead and even allotted him dates.”
Insiders also add that the British government will be extending special privileges to the cast and crew in terms of shoot locations and others. The source states, “Some major action sequences are being planned on the streets of London for which action directors will be flown in from LA. Some streets in the city are expected to shut down for the shoot. London’s mayor Boris Johnson met Sajid recently and extended his full co-operation.”
Nadiadwala confirms the buzz and states, “I am looking forward to the schedule in July. And yes, Randeep is part of the project.”
