For Salman Khan, Ramzan Eid or Eid Ul Fitr has always been lucky. Right from his 1997 movie Judwaa, to Wanted (2009), Bodyguard and Ek Tha Tiger; whenever a movie of his released around Eid, it re-wrote Box Office history.
Now, 16 years after their first collaboration with the movie Judwaa, Salman Khan and film-maker Sajid Nadiadwala are coming up with another action-comedy Kick, which is expected to release on the Eid Ul Fitr in 2014.
“After we decided to release the movie (also starring Jacqueline Fernandez and Randeep Hooda) for Eid 2014, during an office discussion about previous festival releases with Salman, someone pointed out that Judwaa came out on February 7, 1997, which was Eid,” recalls Sajid, who is making his directorial debut with the movie.
“Salman is as focused as he was before, whether it’s during the narration or the shooting. The only difference is that earlier I was just his producer and this time, I’m his director as well,” he says; commenting on the fact that all the movies he has done with Salman Khan were hits.
