As if you needed a reason to believe that Salman Khan's Kick will be one of the biggest hits of 2014. Add Jacqueline Fernandes, Randeep Hooda and Nawazuddin Siddiqui to the mix and you know have a winner at hand.
For now, this directorial debut of producer Sajid Nadiadwala is riding high on pre-release buzz and the industry just cannot wait for the opening day.
Interestingly, Salman Khan's Jai Ho is currently the biggest opener of 2014 with a collection of Rs 17 crore on day one. Ek Villain's came a close second: the Siddharth Malhotra-Shraddha Kapoor-Riteish Deshmukh-starrer clocked in at 16.72 crore.
Kick is set to be screened in over 5,000 screens worldwide -- around 4,400 screens in India and 700 abroad.
Here are 6 reasons why we think Kick will prove to be a phenomena for the industry.
1. Star power
Salman Khan, like Shah Rukh and Aamir, enjoys a fan-following that ensures huge turn-out of fans who believe in marking their presence for the first day, first show. The film's trailer has only added to the buzz: it promises fireworks of the kind seldom seen in India. Rest assured, it will be much better than Jai Ho, Salman's previous release this year. Just picture him as the 'devil' and you know what's the excitement all about!
2. Talent bonus
Surprisingly, it is not just Salman Khan or Jacqueline who will draw crowds to the theatres this time. Sajid Nadiadwala has roped in a string of brilliant actors -- Randeep Hooda, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Sanjay Mishra and Saurabh Shukla -- who have it in them to steal screen space from any superstar. Remember Randeep Hooda in Highway? Not a fan of Nawazuddin Siddiqui yet? It will be fun to watch Hooda and Siddiqui in this masala flick. Shukla and Mishra add that extra intrigue to the impressive line-up.
