Director Shirish Kunder, who has apparently postponed the release of his ambitious sci-fi film, Joker, from August 31 to September 14, as it was clashing with actor Salman Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger, says that he is directing the actor’s next film, Kick, on Salman’s own recommendation. “The offer came
from Salman himself,” says Kunder. Kick is the Hindi remake of the Tamil superhit Thillalangadi, which was remade in Telugu and titled Kick. The Telugu version starred actors Ravi Teja and Ileana D’Cruz. The Hindi remake is being produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. “I have worked with Sajid Nadiadwala before,” says Kunder, who will start the film by the end of this year. “It’s a ready script, so everything came on a plate. I just have to do the creative work.”
Salman seems to be on a South film remake spree — and doing very well at it.
