Salman’s ‘Kick’ release doubtful on Eid!

July 22, 2014, By S Ranjita

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is known for his gestures, which he recently showed while appearing for a special role in Ritesh Deshmukh’s “Lai Bhaari”.

However, the current collections of “Lai Bhaari”, which has been written by none other than director Sajid Nadiadwala of Salman’s “Kick”, may dent a hole in the collections of “Kick”.

Produced by Genelia D’Souza, “Lai Bhaari” is having its feast at the single screens. Co-producer Ameya Khopkar, who is also the chief of MNS Film Wing, is not willing to draw back the movie for “Kick”, which now finds itself jinxed with the release date around the corner.

In a report in Times of India, Khopkar was quoted saying, “We will not withdraw from the screens where the film is doing very well. In the theatres where business is okay, we may give them a show or two.”

Nadiadwala who had a meeting with the producers is currently worried on the release. TOI further quoted a unit source saying, “Khopkar is adamant that Lai Bhaari will continue to play on the screens where it is bringing in the money.

Sajid did not imagine even in his wildest dream that he’d get such stiff competition from Lai Bhaari for Salman’s Eid release.”

Nadiadwala chose not to make any comments for the matter, but distributors have claimed to work on “Divide and Run” policy.

“Kick” should remain the preference of multiplex cinegoers and is among the most anticipated releases of the year. Salman himself needs to get the box office going, especially after the lukewarm response to “Jai ho”.
