Salman Khan and David Dhawan have been known as one of the most successful actor-director jodis in Bollywood. Together they have given hits such as Partner, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge, Biwi No 1 and Judwaa.
Reportedly Salman has refused to let producer Sajid Nadiadwala get David to direct the remake of the South film Kick, titled Sanki in Hindi, starring him in the main lead.
A website quotes a source, "Sajid has got the rights of the Telugu super hit Kick and has finalised Salman to star in it. Sajid spoke to David Dhawan to direct the film but when Salman heard that David was being considered, he flatly refused to be a part of Sajid's film. He is not keen to work with David and wants somebody else to direct the remake."
Also, "Salman is upset with David for several reasons. He really wanted Partner 2 to take off soon but there is no sign of the film from David's end. On the contrary, David went ahead to direct Hook Ya Crook with John Abraham, who Salman can't stand."
Though Sajid Nadiadwala has said, "I haven't finalised anything. David is obviously the first name that comes to mind but I haven't spoken to him as such."
We certainly hope that all's well between the duo as they produce entertaining cinema together.
