According to media reports, Jacqueline Fernandez may not be seen in Kick 2. Sources suggest that Deepika Padukone could be roped in instead.
The news coming out from Sajid Nadiadwala’s production house is clearly stating that the fans might witness the never-seen-before pair of Deepika and Salman Khan, in the sequel of Kick.
The sources close to Sajid Nadiadwala state:
“If you remember, Deepika was the first choice for Kick. But somehow it didn’t work out. Jacqueline was brought in and Kick changed the course of her career.”
Since Deepika is known for choosing meatier roles, the makers are careful about her character. “Deepika can’t play just a typical Salman heroine.
Her role has to be as powerful as Salman’s. Sajid is working on it, injecting heft into the female lead,” reports a leading daily.
As for future projects, Deepika will be seen as an acid-attack survivor in Chhapaak, whilst Jacqueline will be making her digital debut in Farah Khan’s Mrs Serial Killer.
Meanwhile, Salman Khan will be next seen in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat with Katrina Kaif, Sunil Grover and Disha Patani.
The 2014 film Kick marked the directorial debut of Sajid Nadiadwala.
As of now, further confirmations are awaited for this sequel.
