Sajid Nadiadwala has confirmed that Shirish Kunder directed Kick, headlining Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha, will begin production in November.
"My production house is just like Salman's own. We start on November 18. We will be shooting in Mumbai and South Korea. The other details are fast being worked out," Mumbai Mirror quoted Sajid as saying.
Sajid's statement puts to rest all rumors of Salman not showing enough interest in the film due to differences with the producer over remunerations.
There were rumors that Kick will be made in 3D, but there is no confirmation from the producer or director as yet.
The film is a remake of Kick (2009), a Telugu action romance drama directed by Surender Reddy, starring Ravi Teja. Its a story of a man who loves challenges in life and does things to get a kick out of them.
Salman, 45, will play a cop and he will be trained by French action expert Philippe Guegan for the action sequences in the film.
Salman is currently shooting for brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri's Bodyguard with co-star Kareena Kapoor. The film is nearing completion after a month long third schedule in Patiala. It is due for release on August 31.
In July, Salman will begin filming for his first project with Yash Raj Films (YRF), Ek Tha Tiger, with co-star Katrina Kaif. A week long schedule is reportedly planned in war torn Iraq with intense action scenes.
Katrina, who plays a deglam role in the film, will not be a part of the Iraq schedule.
The film will hit screens mid 2012.
Salman will simultaneously film for brother Sohail Khan's production - Sher Khan, a jungle adventure film planned in 3D. Sohail and YRF have mutually worked out a schedule that will allow Salman to work in both the projects simultaneously.
The above films are the only ones for which Salman has given dates.
Films in the pipeline include two sequels - brother Arbaaz Khan's Dabangg 2, likely to begin filming mid 2012; and Boney Kapoor's No Entry Mein Entry.
