"I have always been a big fan of Zeenat Amanji and even still today I am her big fan. If anyone can replace her its Jacqueline Aman Fernandez," Salman told reporters here. 'Kick' marks the directorial debut of producer Sajid Nadiadwala.

"I have never worked with actress who has tantrums. After this film she (Jacqueline) will kick all of us," he said in a lighter vein. Salman's character 'devil' is reported to have many shades and the actor has performed many stunts while romancing Jacqueline.

"I will not reveal what my character is in 'Kick'. All I can say is it's a mischievous and naughty role (and) that's why its called devil," the actor said. The much-awaited trailer was launched amidst media and fan frenzy at Gaiety Galaxy in suburban Bandra.

The trailer is packed with daredevil stunts, romantic sequences, besides Salman's trademark one-liners. 'Kick' also stars Randeep Hooda and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in prominent roles. The film is a remake of the 2009 Telugu film of same name.

"It (the film) is adapted from a south film but the writers have made changes in the story... I think only 10 per cent of it is same," Nadiadwala said. Produced by UTV Motion pictures and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Pvt Ltd, 'Kick' is slated for July 25 release.
