For last few weeks, a rumour has been making the rounds that a film called KICK would go on floors soon and it would feature the 'never-paired-before' couple of Salman and Deepika together. A remake of the namesake Telugu film, it would be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and directed by A. R. Murugadoss of GHAJINI fame.

"As you mention it yourself, it is plain rumour. Reports of me working with Salman in KICK are untrue. In fact I haven't been offered any such film", Deepika sets the record straight, hence diluting yet another piece of gossip that was making the rounds of the industry circles.

CHECK OUT: Salman and I were supposed to be paired

At his end, Sajid Nadiadwala is pretty gung ho about beginning work on KICK. After the release of HOUSEFULL and once ANJAANA ANJAANI wraps up, it is going to be KICK for the film maker. Though he doesn't divulge the cast of the film, he does confirm that the film is certainly on.

Given the fact that KICK is said to be starring Salman Khan in the lead, how big can one expect the film to be, especially due to the news making the rounds that it is going to be an out and out action flick?

"First of all let me clarify that KICK is not an out and out action flick", Nadiadwala defuses a rumour here, "Someone just carried out an article stating so though it is nowhere closer to the fact. Secondly, it is too early to talk about the script. We are still in the process of working on it though we should be able to wrap up soon. We begin shooting in August/September."
