A VERY HAPPY EID to all readers!
We hope you have a wonderful day with friends and family and get to enjoy all the treats and pleasures you have been denying yourself over the last month.
Now as an entertainment/film site – we have to know – will you be seeing Salman Khan’s much anticipated Eid release, “Kick?” wherever you are in the world…(it is playing here in the UK!)
We appreciate Bollywood might not be your thing (you’re an asianculturevulture after all! haha), we hear that, but on a day like this, it’s hard not to be a little seduced…
It looks truly spectacular from the trailer with Salman Khan doing what he does best…
Being Salman Khan.
With filming in Warsaw, it looks like a ride and a half!
For fans of independent Indian cinema as we are…Nawazuddin Siddiqui features in “Kick”, alongside Khan.
It can only serve to cement his growing reputation for versatility and it will be interesting to see if it leads to further offers and a more established Bollywood presence. Critics of Bollywood might ask has this skilled actor sold out?The film has already reportedly grossed over 50 Crores (a bit under £5 million or under $9 million) in India, and is heading for the magic 100 Crore mark, which was surpassed by “Dhoom3” earlier this year.
“Kick” also features Jacqueline Fernandez and Randeep Hooda, two rising stars and the film is a remake of a Telegu film with the same name, but the screenaplay has been adapted by director Sajid Nadiadwalla and Indian best-seller writer, Chetan Bhagat.
Khan, who times releases in conjunction with Eid, remains a huge office box office draw and despite negative publicity from time to time is undoubtedly one of Bollywood’s most enduring and much-loved stars.
Here’s the trailer – enjoy! Tell us what you think on our facebook page in the post about this. If you want to have a rant…
