Trade analyst Vajir Singh says, “The buzz and excitement about Kick is tremendous. It is going to be an experience for Salman’s fans around the world.”

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh agrees, adding, “The craze for Kick is humongous among the audience. Salman and Eid is the biggest combination (sic). The theatrical trailer, too, has generated great response. Salman apni Eidi lene zaroor aayega. (Salman will come to take his Eidi).”

Ashish Saksena, COO, Big Cinemas says, “Kick is, by far, the most anticipated film of the year. This is evident by the hysteria that the trailer has generated. Due to our presence in big cities and smaller towns, we are extremely excited about the film. We are getting an amazing number of inquiries from audiences.”
