‘Kick’ creates history, trailer crosses 7 million hits
The official trailer of Salman Khan’s much awaited film ‘Kick’ was released on last Sunday, 15th June. Salman was present at the Gaiety Galaxy theatre in Mumbai to launch the trailer himself. Salman chose this venue because he believes single screen theaters are lucky for him. Looks like the gamble has paid off and his luck has begun to favor. The trailer of the film has racked up 7 million hits on YouTube and that too in only five days. By doing so, ‘Kick’ has broken the records of ‘Krrish 3’ and ‘Dhoom 3’. Aamir Khan Starrer ‘Dhoom 3’ had crossed 4 million views in six days while it took four days for ‘Krrish 3’ to cross that figure. Remarkably, the ‘kick’ trailer crossed 5 million hits in just 59 hours.
Naturally, Salman is very happy with the way things are going. He recently took to Twitter and thanked fans for their faith and support. He wrote, “Thank u , appreciate it . Glad u guys liked it.” Not just the general audience but people from the film industry have also reacted very enthusiastically to the film’s trailer. Filmmaker Karan Johar wrote, “Outstanding!!!!!!! Huge blockbuster enroute!!!! Congratulations Sajid!!! @BeingSalmanKhan !!!!” Sonam Kapoor has applauded her best friend Jacqueline Fernandez, she wrote, “@RheaKapoor: Hot trailer! Hotter chick! @Asli_Jacqueline #KICK” #sizzlesizzle jack.” Actor-producer Riteish Deshmukh also posted on Twitter. He said, “Super Duper Blockbuster KICK – so happy for my friend Sajid Nadiadwala – a @BeingSalmanKhan show all the way.” Salman’s brother actor Arbaaz Khan has claimed that this film will be Salman’s biggest film ever. Recently while talking to reporters at an event, Arbaaz said, “The trailer of ‘Kick’ is outstanding. After watching it I was blown away…I am pretty sure that the film will be Salman’s biggest hit, inshallah…Lets see how much audience will appreciate it but I personally feel ‘Kick’ should be a very big hit.”
‘Kick’ is an important film for all involved with it, for various reasons. For Salman it is crucial because his last film ‘Jai Ho’ failed to live up to the expectations. This is also the directorial debut of Sajid Nadiadwala, so he will be hoping to succeed in his new role. This is also the first major solo heroine role for Jacqueline Fernandez. The screenplay has been written by famous novelist Chetan Bhagat. ‘Kick’ is expected to release on July 25th, on the occasion of Eid, which Salman feels is another lucky charm.
