The roadblock in the shooting of Kick has been cleared with the film’s leading man Salman Khan finally granted visa to the UK.
Salman was set to fly to the UK to shoot for his next film to be directed by good friend Sajid Nadiadwala last week. But the 47-year-old superstar was denied the visa apparently because of a “technical” error.
It’s learnt that relevant papers of the actor’s poaching case failed to reach the visa office on time, leading to the denial of permission for the star to fly to the UK.
“The visa was denied to him because some papers from Jodhpur were not there...The papers had not come. All this has happened because of a technical glitch,” Salman Khan’s father Salim had said.
However, Salman applied for visa again and has now been granted. He’s expected to fly to the UK within a week’s time.
The superstar has a few pending legal cases against him, including the 1998 poaching case and the 2002 hit-and-run case. He was recently charged in the second case with culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
The shooting of Kick has already started in Glasgow with the unit filming a couple of action scenes on Randeep Hooda. The film also stars Jacqueline Fernandez. It was earlier slated to be directed by Shirish Kunder, but Sajid Nadiadwala took the reins after the former’s Joker tanked badly at the box office last year.
