Sajid Nadiadwala is a successful producer and is also a close friend of Salman Khan. The two worked together for films like Jeet, Judwaa, Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega and Mujhse Shaadi Karogi.
The producer bought the Hindi remake rights of the Telugu film Kick and initially wanted Shirish Kunder to direct the film. He earlier helmed Sajid’s production Jaan-E-Mann that starred Salman Khan and akshay kumar.
However, after Joker bombed and ridiculed by critics, Sajid eased out Kunder stating that his script has serious flaws. Now, Sajid is donning the director’s hat for Kick which stars Salman.
The producer says he is turning director at the insistence of Salman Khan. Everyone knows that Salman will completely oversee every aspect of the film that he acts in.
