Salman Khan has never done a sequel to his films, except for “Dabangg”, but that might change soon with a sequel of the superstar’s last released film “Kick”.

According to sources close to the project, “Kick”, directed by Sajid Nadiadwala, which is Salman’s highest grosser to date, may write out its sequel sooner than expected.

‘Kick’ has become the highest grosser of Salman’s career. It has so far accrued a total box-office collection of Rs.234 crore. That beats the earlier Salman starrer ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ which netted Rs.188 crore worldwide.

“Sajid is now being told by his distributors and friends to carry the story forward into a sequel because it makes a lot of business sense,” a source said.

Nadiadwala, however, is in two minds as he has his hands full as a producer.

“It’s been a tremendous year for me. God has been kind. ‘Kick’ became far bigger than we imagined. And it’s all because of Salman’s star-power. I don’t know whether I can direct again for a while. My hands are full with productions. I don’t deny there is a growing demand to direct again. All I can say is, wait and watch,” said Nadiadwala.

Released in July this year, “Kick” also featured Randeep Hooda, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Jacqueline Fernandez.
