Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is set to kick-start this Eid season with the forthcoming action romantic-comedy film Kick, releasing on 25th July 2014 through UTV Motion Pictures. Billed as an awesome, roller-coaster ride of action, intrigue, suspense and romance, Salman Khan leads an impressive ensemble cast in this high-octane, action rom-com.
The intriguing story takes as its core premise a man’s desire to live life to the full and get a ‘kick’ out of every opportunity that comes his way. Salman Khan plays the character of Devil, an adrenaline junkie who is addicted to risk, be it in his job or in his personal life. His many misguided and miscreant acts culminate in him becoming a thief and dicing with the law in a dangerous and daring game. What ensues is a cat-and-mouse style chase, as Devil is pursued by lauded police officer Himanshu (Randeep Hooda – Highway) as well as entering into a turf war with local gangster Aslam (Nawazuddin Siddiqui – Gangs of Wesseypur).
Kick is helmed by popular producer-turned-director Sajid Nadiadwala, with the screenplay written by Sajid Nadiadwala and acclaimed author Chetan Bhagat (3 Idiots, Kai Po Che, 2 States). Salman Khan is joined by leading lady Jacqueline Fernandez (Housefull, Race 2), Bobby Deol (Dostana), Mithun Chakraborty (OMG! Oh My God) and a special appearance by Nargis Fakhri (Madras Café), amongst others.
The film has already met with acclaim by fans and industry figures alike, with the official trailer breaking records with four million hits in just 38 hours. The trailer launch has crossed 39,000 likes already, making it the fastest trailer to ever get so many likes.
Bollywood celebrities have also been tweeting their appreciation. Acting legend Amitabh Bachchan said, “Did you see the trailer of Kick. baaadooom!! Compares with anything that the other ‘wood’ brings out from their high end films!” Producer-director Karan Johar said, “Kick looks outstanding!! Huge blockbuster enroute!! Congratulations Sajid!.”
With death-defying stunts, state-of-the-art VFX, picturesque locations and multiple avatars played by the delectable Salman Khan, Kick promises to be a complete wholesome entertainer with an engaging plot and superstar Salman Khan at his best – as an action hero and romantic lead.
