After having worked on the screenplay of films like Hello and Kai Po Che (both based on his best selling novels), celebrated author Chetan Bhagat will now be writing the screenplay of Salman Khan starrer Kick produced and directed by Sajid Nadiadwala.
Chetan and Sajid have known each other for a while now and the writer even sold the rights of his popular novel ‘2 States: The Story of My Marriage’ to Sajid Nadiadwala. When Nadiadwala took over the reins of directing Kick from Shirish Kunder, he thought it will be best if Bhagat helped with the screenplay.
Kick starring Salman Khan is a remake of the 2009 Telugu blockbuster Kick. Even though the makers have acquired the official remake rights, Chetan Bhagat plans to re-structure the original screenplay to suit the Hindi audiences’ taste.
