The Hindi remake of the Telugu blockbuster Kick is undergoing the process of script overhaul because the leading man Salman Khan is squeamish about cosying up to his co-star Sonakshi Sinha in the film.
After a long gap, producer Sajid Nadiadwala is working with Salman Khan again in the remake of Kick. But the film won’t be an exact copy of its Telugu original that had intense passion play between its leading stars Ravi Teja and Illeana D’Cruz. Obviously Salman saw the film he balked at the thought of canoodling with Sonakshi Sinha who is 22 years younger than him.
Salman is a very good friend of Shatrughan Sinha and very protective of Sonakshi. Even in Dabangg, if you recall, he had no intimate scenes with Sonakshi even though he was the dominating partner in the relationship.
So Salman’s brief to Nadiadwala for the Kick remake is simple -- chop out all the physical intimacy between the characters and make the romance more muted through silent glances, gestures and talks.
Nadiadwala has confirmed that the script is being reworked to tone down the intimacy between the leading characters. But the gist of the story will remain the same.
