Jacqueline Fernandez has been confirmed to star opposite Salman Khan in the sequel of ‘Kick’ (2014).
There were rumours aplenty that Amy Jackson could be replacing Fernandez in the film but this has now turned out be untrue. Talking about the sequel, director Sajid Nadiadwala told DNA India, “We had already decided that there would be a sequel. I’ve been writing it for a year now. As I had a lot of other things on my plate, it was taking time. I’ll restart the writing process. We should be ready to roll the movie next year after Salman finishes all his current films. Kick 2 will release on Christmas 2019.”
He added, “At an event, Salman was handing over the Best Director Award to me and he had said in jest, ‘Kick 2 is ready now, and Jacqueline, you are not there!’ He just joked and news spread that Jackie would be replaced in the film.”
Confirming the news of Fernandez’s involvement in the film, he said, “Once I finish penning the script, I’ll be completely sure. But at present, she’s there in what I’m writing. But it’s too early to talk about it.”
Fernandez and Khan are currently shooting for ‘Race 3’.
