Salman Khan can now spread his legs really wide and 'kick' really strong. Pun intended. Reason being that now he has an entire fortnight open for himself when it comes to his next biggie KICK which is slated for 27th July release.
"With Vidya Balan's BOBBY JASOOS getting pre-poned from 1st August to 4th July, one more weekend has opened up for Salman Khan. There is no notable film lined up for release on this weekend. Since the next biggie would be Akshay Kumar's ITS ENTERTAINMENT which releases on 8th August, KICK would have 15 days all for itself," informs our source.
In the times when even an open weekend without any competition whatsoever comes at a premium, as many as two back to back weekends being free for KICK is indeed music for Salman Khan's ears. Producer-director Sajid Nadiadwala too can rejoice as he would now have a wide chain of theaters as well as extensive show count at his disposal.
No biggie would come on 1st August now which is terrific indeed for Salman as he would be looking at making and breaking many records. The last time when a film had such a mega uninterrupted run, it was with Yash Raj and Aamir Khan's DHOOM 3 which had arrived sans any competition and raked in moolah for weeks in succession. Later, though JAI HO did nett over 100 crores, quite a few Salman fans as well as those from the industry felt that their bhai comes with a mandate to deliver much bigger.
With an open fortnight available and the reports about it being an out and out entertainer already trickling in, KICK could well make a huge splash at the box office once it arrives this Eid.
Incidentally, Salman's last Eid release EK THA TIGER was a biggie too and had raked in 199 crores at the box office.
