Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is all set to kickstart Eid season in the UK with the release of his latest thriller ‘Kick’ on Friday.

“It is a really sweet film; it’s a joyride. It is a must-see for educational and recreational purposes,” Salman told his UK fans via video conference from Mumbai.

“I sadly missed out on the London shoot for this film because I didn’t get my visa in time but the rest of the unit had great fun there without me,” he added.

The film, directed by Sajid Nadiadwala, is being hyped here as a roller-coaster ride of action, intrigue, suspense and romance.

“The producer Sajid Nadiadwala has given the director Sajid Nadiadwala such a huge canvas to work on. I don’t think he will ever sign himself again,” Khan joked in reference to the producer-turned-director.

The screenplay of ‘Kick’ has been written by Chetan Bhagat, the writer behind box-office hits like ‘3 Idiots’ and ‘2 States’. Bhagat claims he based the entire film on Salman’s own carefree character.

“My brief was to write a film which was entertaining in every minute. The basic premise of the film I really liked, which is a man who lives for his kick. Sajid was directing this movie for his kick, I as a novelist was doing this screenplay for a kick and Salman lives his life for kick,” said Bhagat, who described the film as a ‘super movie’ which could beat the record of ‘3 Idiots’ at the box-office.
