2020 has just begun but Salman Khan appears to have wasted no time in blocking Eid and Christmas 2021 for his next festival releases. While the release on Eid is titled Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali, his Christmas release will be Kick 2, according to a report by Mumbai Mirror. A source told the publication that the first draft of the film is ready and the team has to work on the screenplay. Once the screenplay is ready, Salman will start shooting from next year.
Sajid Nadiadwala, who had directed Kick, will be helming the sequel too.
“Kick 2 will hit the theatres in December 2021. I am in the process to finish writing the script,” Sajid confirmed.
Some time back, Salman took to Twitter to announce his latest film, Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali. While other details are under wraps, with Housefull duo Farhad Samji and Sajid Nadiadwala as director and producer, respectively, the film is likely to be a comedy.
