Following the critical disaster of this weekend’s big release, ‘Joker’, it seems Shirish Kunder is slowly emerging as an un-bankable film-maker of sorts. His next was to be Sajid Nadiadwala’s ‘Kick’ starring Salman Khan but it seems as if Kunder has been thrown out of the project.
As reported by Mumbai Mirror, Nadiadwala has taken over the project due to the many controversies surrounding ‘Joker’. So much so is the ill-feeling that rumours suggest Nadiadwala will be taking to direction of the film himself. A friend of his stated, “Sajid and Shirish had a chat. The project, Kick had always been Sajid�۪s baby. Shirish thought it would be better if the producer called the shots himself”.
It has also been suggested that Nadiadwala has planned to go alone with the project, much before the debacle of ‘Joker’. Either way, Kunder is the inevitable loser. It remains to be seen what he may have up his sleeve this time without the backing of a certain Khiladi.
