Mumbai: Salman Khan fans are in for a massive frustration. By the look of it, Kick 2 won’t be releasing on Eid 2020.
Gossips that “Kick 2” will be Salman’s release on the Eid weekend next year were put to rest by the film’s director-producer Sajid Nadiadwala in a press conference on Saturday in Mumbai. Talking at the event about the present condition of “Kick 2”, Nadiadwala said: “I have just started writing it. It will not be released on Eid 2020.”
Speculations that “Kick 2” might release on Eid 2020 grew after “Inshallah”, Salman’s film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, was cancelled. “Inshallah” was initially meant to clash with Akshay Kumar’s “Sooryavanshi” on Eid next year.
Without mentioning names, he added: “I had gone to his place and he asked me, how much are you ready to start the film. I said I have written one draft and want at least 3-6 months to re-write the draft. So, I will be prepared by Eid with the script.” In other word, “Kick 2” cannot possibly release on Eid 2020 because by that time only the script of the film will be completed.
Although nothing was openly stated, Salman’s puzzling tweet, in the wake of “Inshallah” being shelved, flashed off estimations among fans that he was making plans for “Kick 2” for Eid 2020.
Salman’s tweet took off from his famous dialogue in his Eid 2014 blockbuster, “Kick”.
“Itna mat sochna mere baare mein, Dil mein aata hoon .. aur Eid pe bhi (Don’t care so much about me, I land into your hearts.. and also arrive on Eid),” he wrote.
With his only other approaching movie, “Dabanagg 3”, already confirmed for Christmas 2019, Salman will have to shoot a super quickie if he is really serious about arriving on Eid 2020.
