Mumbai: Recently, rumours were doing the rounds that Salman Khan had rejected the script, written by Chetan Bhagat for the movie Kick. Author Chetan Bhagat, who is debuting as a scriptwriter in Bollywood, was upset with these reports. He says that he has not even met the actor for the film and yet to complete the script.
Few days back, a leading daily had quoted a source as saying that Chetan Bhagat had met Salman along with Sajid Nadiadwala, with the first draft of the script of Kick. After a while, Salman Khan had stopped flipping the pages and said that he didn't find the script very engaging.
Perplexed by the rumour, Chetan Bhagat clarified by saying that he hasn't even met Salman regarding Kick and the script of the movie is yet to be completed. He is working only with Sajid Nadiadwala and his team on the script. He also said it would be best if Nadiadwala clarifies about this issue, as a source close to the project divulged that Salman is in a completely non-interfering mode.
IANS quoted a source as saying, "He is maintaining a hands-free attitude to Kick. It is true that nowadays Salman approves of every department in his starrer - from script to director to cameraman to co-star, before a project takes off. But Kick is entirely his buddy Sajid Nadiadwala's baby and Salman is treating it that way."
Kick is remake of 2009 Telugu film of the same name which starred Ravi Teja and Ileana D'Cruz in the lead. The Hindi version will be directed by Sajid Nadiadwala and the shooting will reportedly start from June 1.
