|Bollywood beauty Nargis Fakhri has pipped the likes of Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone to clinch the item song in Salman Khan’s coming film Kick.
What’s a Salman Khan film without a peppy item song? Director-producer Sajid Nadiadwala has been on the lookout for an actress to get jiggy with the 48-year-old superstar on an item song in 'Kick' (watch trailer).
Deepika Padukone, who’s on top of her game presently, was approached but she has too much on her plate to commit to 'Kick'. She’s slated to shoot for Imtiaz Ali’s film Tamasha with Ranbir Kapoor in the coming weeks.
Katrina Kaif too was considered, but she too is busy with Jagga Jassoos and Bang Bang. Moreover, Sajid Nadiadwala wanted a new face with Salman Khan. Katrina has already done an item with the superstar in Bodyguard.
Finally, the 'Kick' team has zeroed down on Nargis Fakhri. She’s pretty, sexy and can dance too, as she verily displayed in the Phata Poster Nikhlaa Hero song Dhating Naach with Shahid Kapoor.

The item song in 'Kick' will be choreographed by Ahmed Khan. We hear that Nargis Fakhri has already done costume fittings and look tests for the song.
The track will be shot on an elaborate set. Sajid Nadiadwala is in no mood to waste time, as 'Kick' is locked for Eid release in July.
