Chetan Bhagat whose bestsellers Five Point Someone, 3 Mistakes of My Life, One Night @ the Call Center and 2 States have been adapted into Bollywood films, would script Salman Khan's Kick now.
The author shared the news on Twitter.
"Happy to share with you that I'll be writing the screenplay of 'Kick' starring Salman Khan and directed by Sajid Nadiadwala," he wrote.
The basic premise of the story would be adapted from a Telugu flick. "Will be adapting Kick from original Telugu superhit, with fair amount of changes as well. Huge expectations, need all ur support! Thanks!" he says.
The writer also shared the storyline of the film on the micro-blogging site. "Kick is a about a guy who lives life only for his kicks, a powerful concept and a perfect recipe for a Salman-Nadiadwala blockbuster," says Bhagat.
Salman Khan has previously acted in the movie Hello adapted from Bhagat's book One Night @ the Call Center. "Have known both Salman and Sajid Nadiadwala for a while and been wanting to work with them. Couldn't have asked for a better screenplay debut," Bhagat adds.
The writer says he wants to reach the masses. "Many writers upgrade, get agents in London. I want to reach masses. The day I reach Indian farmers I'll consider myself a true Indian writer," Bhagat shared.MORE ON KICK
