Rumours seem to have hit the tinsel town again. Coincidentally, it is again about an actor replacing another actor in a film. However, here the one being supposedly replaced is known, but who is replacing him is still a secret. Adding to the coincidence, it is once again for the film Kick, which is being produced by the famous film maker Sajid Nadiadwala. He is also directing this movie and it is a remake of the Telugu film with the same name. Actors Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Randeep Hooda, Archana Puran Singh, and Mithun Chakraborty are playing the lead roles in Kick. While Randeep was said to be replaced by actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui earlier, now it is Nawaz, who seems to be the scapegoat. A source close to the production team was heard saying, “There have been quite a few discussions and it seems that the makers are not content with the casting. Nawaz might be replaced.”
Nawazuddin Siddiqui was supposed to play villain in Sajid Nadiadwala’s directorial debut Kick. Nevertheless, the actor has played various roles so far in films like Gangs of Wasseypur (2012), Bombay Talkies (2013), and The Lunchbox (2013). He has won accolades for all his previous work in Bollywood due to his flawless acting skills. Nawaz was so excited about his role in Kick that he had once said, “The character that I have been offered is really good, it has logic to whatever he does. As an actor, I must explore myself in every genre.” However, currently as per the rumours, Nawazuddin Siddiqui might be replaced because the makers find the casting not up to the mark. Well, all we can do is just wait and watch. The director producer Sajid still denies the rumour saying, “This is not true, and we are starting (shooting) soon.”
Sajid Nadiadwala’s Hindi remake Kick is slated to release on 25th July this year!
