Salman throws Priyanka out of ‘Kick’ for Shahrukh

Finally, it is Deepika Padukone who will get to romance the box-office king Salman Khan in Sajid Nadiadwala’s ‘Kick’. There was a tussle between Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone as who will play Sallu’s ladylove but at the end Deepika was signed for the film and it is all due to Salman Khan.

Priyanka Chopra’s close association with Shahrukh Khan has made the actress lose the meaty role. It is Salman who throws Piggy Chops out of ‘Kick’. “Deepika Padukone is to romance Salman in ‘Kick’……looks like Priyanka’s close proximity with King Khan (Shah Rukh Khan) has made her lose the role,” a source said.

Adding to the same news, another insider said “Everyone knows how close Priyanka is to Shah Rukh Khan. Salman would never dream of renewing his friendship with anyone who is close to Shah Rukh. She is close to Salman’s sisters. That’s why she’s seen visiting his home. I can tell you with certainty that there’s no project happening with Salman and Priyanka in the lead.”

"Sajid Nadiadwala wants Salman's leading lady in Kick to perform heavy duty martial arts and stunts. Deepika is perfect for the part."

Salman was overheard telling his close ones how wonderful it would be working with Deepika. "Salman has repeatedly been saying how wonderful it would be to work with Deepika, and what a great pair they would make”.

Apart from Deepika and Priyanka, the ‘Barfi!’ actress Illeana D'Cruz was also considered for the role but finally Deepika grabbed the project. ‘Kick’ is a Hindi remake of Telugu blockbuster of the same name.

This would be Salman and Deepika’s first film together while Salman has worked with Priyanka in few films. We hope the pairing of Salman and Deepika will rock at the box-office.
