Kick (2014), one of the biggest blockbusters of superstar Salman Khan’s career, clocks five years today. The action entertainer, which marked the directorial debut of well-known film producer Sajid Nadiadwala, hit theatres on 25th July, 2014. It was one of the highest-grossing films of the year.

While fans are celebrating five years of the film on social media, the makers have begun preparations to roll its second instalment in 2020. The work on the script is currently underway. The film will begin production as soon as the final draft is locked. Salman Khan is set to return to reprise the role of Devil aka Devi Lal Singh in Kick 2.

A source close to the development reveals to a tabloid, “Since Kick was a much-loved film, Sajid and his writing team is taking things extremely slow, to ensure that part two lives up to the expectations of the audience. There have been several brain-storming sessions to lock the premise of the story, which carries forward the franchise. They have finally zeroed in on the idea.”

Talking about the character of Devil in the film, the source adds, “The character is deeply layered. There is a lot about him that has been left to explore. Devil’s character is extremely unpredictable. That is precisely what makes his role all the more unique. Sajid will further explore this side of the character in part two.”

According to reports, Sajid Nadiadwala will take the project to the shooting floor sometime next year. “Salman and Sajid are constantly in touch. The discussion is mostly about Kick 2. Both of them are extremely keen and eager to team up again. Sajid has discussed the basic premise of the film with him, and Salman Khan is quite kicked about the project. The shooting spots will be decided as per the demand of the script. Much like part one, even the sequel will be set in India and abroad,” concluded the source.

Meanwhile, Salman Khan is presently busy shooting for his next Dabangg 3. Also starring Sonakshi Sinha and South superstar Sudeep in important roles, the Prabhudeva directorial is set to enter theatres on 20th December, 2019.
