Salman Khan away from family this Ramadan

Salman Khan flies to UK on Eid to begin the shooting of Sajid Nadiadwalas’s movie ‘Kick’.

It was earlier reported that UK embassy had rejected Salman’s Visa application and did not give him permission to fly to UK. No reason was given for the cancellation of Visa. However, it was speculated that the cancellation came in force after Salman’s ‘hit and run case’ for which the trials are still on.

Now after a week, all his travel related issues are settled and the actor leaves for UK today, on Eid day.

Says a family friend, “It was never a visa issue as reported in the press. Salman was supposed to get a letter from the Rajasthan police allowing him to work outside the country. That got delayed.”

This year Eid seems to be celebrated quietly at Khan’s residence. Firstly, after a lot of pillar to post running, Salman got a UK work permit. Secondly,h is 11 year old hit and run case is opened for fresh trials and thirdly Salman’s father, Salim Khan is undergoing a cataract operation.

A family friend said, “It isn't an easy time for the family. But Salim Saab is smiling right through the setbacks. He has been laughing and joking and telling all his friends not to take life too seriously.”

The movie ‘Kick’ is already running late by schedule. It was earlier reported that the movie would go on floor by July. A source had earlier said, “A few days ago Salman called Sajid and told him that the film would now go on the floors in July instead and even allotted him dates.”
He had further said, “The film, which is going to be helmed by the producer Sajid Nadiadwala himself, will begin its first schedule from July 24 onwards.”

Apart from Salman, the other lead actors of the movie are Randeep Hooda and Jaqueline Fernandez. ‘Kick’ is the Hindi remake of the Telugu hit movie with the same name. The movie was released in 2009 and starred Ravi Teja and Ileana D’Cruz.

‘Kick’ movie’s first schedule of filming is already over in Glasgow. Randeep Hooda’s part of shooting was being carried off there. Salman’s body double was used for a few action sequences. A source said, “Because of his ailing health, Salman cannot perform tough action scenes, even if he had been present in Glasgow.” It is also reported that the action sequences of ‘Kick’ in Glasgow did not start smoothly. A source said, “It was the second day of the shoot and everyone was excited about the high intensity action sequence. However, the timing wasn't co-ordinated well, and that's the reason the car rolled out of control.”
