Essential Bollywood For Eid

Essential Bollywood For Eid

Sajid Nadiadwala's directorial debut Kick hit the theatres in India yesterday. Bollywood fans have plenty of reasons to catch this Salman Khan-starrer that also features Jacqueline Fernandez, Randeep Hooda and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Since 2009, Salman has had a release every Eid-ul Fitr, barring last year. The superstar reclaims the festival period, which has proved to be lucky for him, with “Kick” this year. Interestingly, Salman's first Eid release was the 1997 hit, “Judwaa”, which was produced by Sajid. Also, while the actor has almost always played heroic roles, in “Kick”, he is seen as a character with grey shades —making for an interesting change. Salman has also performed all his stunts...
