Salman Khan, who starred in the BLOCKBUSTER Kick in 2014, was all set to star in the film’s sequel. In fact, producer and director Sajid Nadiadwala announced at the trailer launch of Baaghi 2 that the sequel will release on Christmas 2019. But it seems bad times have befallen Bhai and Kick 2 has been indefinitely postponed due to script problems.
A source said, “Salman Khan was initially supposed to play a double role in Kick 2, and the entire team was quite charged up taking the idea. However, the team of writers were not able to crack a screenplay that excited Khan and Nadiadwala, because of which the idea was scrapped. Sajid then asked the team to brainstorm on several other ideas, but till date, none of them have been able to come up with something that takes the franchise to the next level. While Salman and Sajid have internally spoken about the possibility of film getting pushed, the team is continuing the brainstorming sessions for Kick 2. Sajid Nadiadwala is sure of the fact that he doesn’t want to release a film on a festive weekend for the sake of it and wants to go ahead only with the right entertaining script.”
So does that mean that Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan wouldn’t clash on Christmas next year? And do you really want to see this Clash of the Titans?
