"I haven't even met Salman on Kick" - Chetan Bhagat

Kick is a very special step-forward for producer Sajid Nadiadwala and writer Chetan Bhagat. While the former turns director with Kick, the latter attempts screen-writing for the first time.

With the shooting around the corner - Nadiadwala starts shooting for Kick from June 1- various components of this posh actioner have begun to fall in place. The script which needs to make a noted departure from the original 2009 Telugu film is work under progress.

Now comes a report claiming that Salman has "rejected" the script as written by Chetan Bhagat. The rumor has left Chetan baffled. "I haven't even met Salman at all on Kick! The script is not done yet. I am working with only Sajid Nadiadwala and his team on the script."

Clamming up after this, Chetan said it was best if Sajid Nadiadwala clarified the issue.

A source close to the project divulged that on this occasion, Salman is in a completely non-interfering mode. "He is maintaining a hands-free attitude to Kick. It is true that nowadays Salman approves of every department in his starrer from script to director to cameraman to co-star before a project takes off. But Kick is entirely his buddy Sajid Nadiadwala's baby and Salman is treating it that way. He has very clearly told Sajid, "Jo karna hai kar. I am with you."
