The much-talked about Kick sequel which has been confirmed for a Christmas 2019 release, will witness Salman Khan back as the ‘Devil’ but with a new twist to the tale.  According to sources, the superstar is likely to essay a double role of a father and son, with the story taking a 20-year leap on the lines of the Ravi Teja starrer, Kick 2.  Sources also reveal that the younger Salman in the film may have new traits to his character which make him a formidable threat to all his enemies, who try to challenge him.  Apparently both Sajid and Salman, who was in the know of the script since the past two years, kept improvising on it, after which it was recently finalized.

More interestingly, Sajid Nadiadwala is said to have once again roped in the original Kick writer Rajat Aroraa, who was instrumental in regaling the audiences with some of his memorable dialogues in the film. Apparently both Aroraa and Sajid Nadiadwala had been working exhaustively on the script of Kick 2 for the past two years, giving a new edge to the story that will now showcase Salman Khan in a role that will be high on both emotion and action.

In one of his earlier interviews post the phenomenal success of Kick, Sajid had said that one of the reasons for Kick being a huge success was the equation he shared with Salman and the way he understood him, “I felt that all the small things that people enjoyed in the film were because I knew Salman but definitely those numbers could not have been achieved without him,” he had said. In another media interaction he had confessed how it was a huge responsibility to work with Salman considering the hysteria among his fans and his huge fan base.

It is a known fact that Salman Khan and Sajid Nadiadwala have been thick friends for more than two decades since they first collaborated for the 1996 film Jeet, after which they gave several hits together like Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega and Mujhse Shaadi Karogi. It was Salman who inspired Sajid to make his directorial debut with the action comedy Kick, which went on to make history at the box-office and had the unique distinction of being Salman’s first film to enter the Rs 200 cr club. It is a little-known fact that it was Sajid Nadiadwala who gifted the title rights of Bharat-the upcoming epic film to be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, to Salman Khan when he and his brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri felt that it would be the only apt title for the film.

Urvashi admits that she was delighted to receive the message from the singer and record producer, who had hosted her during her last visit to Los Angeles, six months ago, “He sent me a text message and I sent him Christmas wishes too but these long distance friendships are really very painful because you can’t meet your friends often even if you would want to. Thanks to this digital era that we can at least stay connected,” she says.

According to the actress, Christmas is a season that she has always cherished over the years from her childhood days, “It revives the nostalgia of school days and the good times I spent with my friends in Uttarakhand. I studied in St Joseph Academy in Dehradun, Uttarakhand and I vividly remember my growing up years in school when we would celebrate the entire Christmas week. I and my friends would also make it a point to pay obeisance to the St Joseph church in Kotdwar, Uttarakhand, the second biggest church in Asia,” the actress recalls. The big excitement was the surprise gift from Santa Claus, who would come with a big bag of goodies, ”We would all wait for the Santa to come down and shower us with those special gifts. Later we would have a grand party in the evening on Christmas Day,” she smiles.
