Promo of EK THA TIGER has created an all-around sensation and it is quite apparent that the film would elevate high adrenalin action specifically designed for the big screen. However this could well be just a beginning for Salman Khan as far as action flicks are concerned because post EK THA TIGER, he would be taking action to the next level with KICK which is being designed on the lines of DHOOM franchise.
Says a source attached to the Sajid Nadiadwala production, "Yes, it is going to be very high on action but then it has a background similar to that of DHOOM series which means there would be enhanced adrenalin pumping sequences instead of any blows or kicks. Of course everyone is well aware of the fact that Salman needs to take precautions against getting even the slightest of blows. However KICK is a different kind of a film altogether. There would be numerous bike and car chases due to which pressure would be much lesser on Salman."
Meanwhile, since he has already done his bit of raw action in films like BODYGUARD and DABANGG, the message is to now compete with top competitors like Shahrukh Khan [DON 2] and Aamir Khan [DHOOM 3] when it comes to some cool action. However, Salman fans won't feel alienated since 'masala' elements won't be done away with.
Adds our source, "Director Shirish Kunder would be maintaining a balancing act between Salman's current image and add on a macho element to it via action sequences in KICK. One can't think of taking away an intrinsic charm of Salman which means he would continue to play to the gallery, sing songs, dance with his leading lady, indulge in comedy and also mouth those 'seeti-maar' dialogues."
Well, smart thinking this one. KICK goes on floors this November.
