Salman Khan kicks Chetan Bhagat's script

Chetan Bhagat is one of the most successful novelists of the Indian subcontinent. Not only that, his two novels have been adapted into movie format and both have been huge hits at the box office. His novel ‘Five Point Someone’ was made into the movie ‘3 Idiots’ that starred Aamir Khan. ‘3 Idiots’ that released in 2009 went on to become the biggest grosser in the Indian box office. Next, the film ‘Kai Po Che’ which released recently in 2013 is based on his book ‘The 3 Mistakes of My Life’. It is doing roaring business at present.

It seems Chetan has decided to join the Bollywood bandwagon and try his hand at scriptwriting. In October 2012 it was announced with huge fanfare that the author Chetan Bhagat will be writing the script for the film ‘Kick’, while Rajat Arora will be penning the dialogues in the film. Sajid Nadiadwala is going to both direct and produce the film. ‘Kick’ is the Hindi remake of a commercially successful Telugu comedy action flick. Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone are in the leading roles of the movie, while Randeep Hooda will be seen in a supporting role.

Recently Chetan went to Meet Salman along with Sajid to discuss the progress with the film script. However, Salman didn’t like the script and have asked Chetan to work on it as the actor felt that the commercial masala in the film was missing. According to a close source describing the incident said that after reading the script for some time, Salman kept the file aside and told politely that Chetan have failed in retaining the essence of the original film. Salman requested Chetan to 'Make it more commercial'. The grapevines of tinsel town tell us that Chetan haven’t taken badly to the remarks of Salman and is working on the script as suggested by the actor.

However, Chetan himself denies having ever met Salman Khan to discuss the script of ‘Kick’. He states that the script is not finished yet, he is working on it and so far he had interaction only with Sajid and his creative team about the film script.

Whatever the truth maybe, we sure hope that the team of ‘Kick’ works in harmony and Chetan is able to deliver a good script that will keep us spell bound in the movie theatres. The expectations are very high from the movie ‘Kick’.
