It is a known fact that Chetan Bhagat is doing a screenplay adaptation for Salman Khan' KICK which would be going on floors next year. While producer Sajid Nadiadwala, who is also turning a director with the film, is entrusting Chetan to do the needful from the writing perspective. This is also the first ever instance in his writing career where he is adapting someone else's screenplay. Otherwise all his work so far has been original and other Bollywood writers have picked up his novels and translated them for the big screen viewing.

No wonder, quite a few were surprised when Sajid Nadiadwala, who also has the rights for his 2 STATES adaptation and has already roped in Arjun Kapoor to play the lead protagonist, felt that Chetan would be best suited to be in charge of writing for the Salman Khan starrer.

''I am honoured that Sajid chose me'', says Chetan, ''I think for me it is the biggest high. Hopefully we would make a great film together. It has been a good progress so far. I have already completed the first draft of the screenplay. However there is more work to be done. It is going to take at least three to six months to get it all into a shape where I can start feeling comfortable about it being ready to be shot. The good thing is that Salman is there for the film while Sajid too is sure that we won't go on floors till we have a bound script in place.''

KICK is expected to go on floors by middle of 2013.
