Quashing all the rumours about Jacqueline being replaced in the franchise film, producer-director Nadiadwala confirmed that the sequel of his 2014 hit Kick will be made with the same lead actors.
In Kick, Salman essayed the role of Devi Lal Singh aka Devil who turns into a Robin Hood-like robber and Jacqueline played a psychiatrist and Salman’s love interest too. Nawazuddin Siddiqui was the antagonist in the movie.
Sajid Nadiadwala also explained how the rumours around Jacqueline not being a part of Kick 2 started doing the rounds. He said, “At an event, Salman was handing over the Best Director Award to me and he had said in jest, ‘Kick 2 is ready now, and Jacqueline, you are not there!’ He just joked and news spread that Jackie would be replaced in the film.” He confirms that Jacqueline will be a part of it. “Once I finish penning the script, I’ll be completely sure. But at present, she’s there in what I’m writing. But it’s too early to talk about it.”
Race 3 will be an Eid release but we are looking forward to the Devil coming back in 2019!
