Just a day before the release of his first film with Sonakshi Sinha, Salman Khan has signed another film with the much talked-about debutante.
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala drove down to the Sinhas’ bungalow to sign Sonakshi Sonakshi opposite Salman in the Hindi remake of the Tamil blockbuster "Kick", which Shirish Kunder will be directing for Nadiadwala.
Salman was not only keen to sign Kunder as director, he also strongly recommended Sonakshi Sinha for the female lead, which Ileana had performed in the Telugu original.
Sajid Nadiadwala says, “It was Salman who was very keen that I sign Sonakshi Sinha opposite him in "Kick". I became a hundred percent sure of her after I saw her in Dabangg. She and Salman make a great pair. I am very happy to be working with Shatruji’s daughter. He has worked extensively for my banner. In fact, I’ve a picture at home with Shatruji when he was shooting for our banner in Bhai Ho To Aisa. I was 6 at that time.”
Says Sajid emotionally, “This is the first time I’ve gone to someone’s house to sign an actor. Everyone comes to my office. But Sonakshi Sinha is Shatrughan Sinhaji’s daughter.”
Adds Shatughan Sinha, “I told Sonakshi that I’ve worked wth Sajid’s grandfather and father. Now it’s her turn to continue the tradition. God willing my sons too will work with Sajid.”
The remake of "Kick" starts this winter. Incidentally, this is Sonakshi Sinha’s third film with Salman. She is already doing the sequel to Dabangg with the star.
