Will Anushka Sharma join Salman Khan in Kick?
The Patiala House babe is bagging many plum projects and seems to be on her way to becoming one of the big ticket babes in B-town
As Shahrukh Khan’s distraught Taaniji in Aditya Chopra’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Anushka Sharma made a confident debut in Bollywood. She followed it up with some decent films, as well as one disaster with Akshay Kumar in Patiala House. Her journey has just begun, but she is already working with Shahrukh again in Yash Chopra’s untitled film and Rajkumar Hirani’s Aamir Khan-starrer Peekay, as well as in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Matru ki Bijli ka Mann Dola with Imran Khan. She is perhaps just short of one more Khan film in her kitty to catapult her into the A-league of B-town babes. And we hear that she has started the groundwork to star in Sajid Nadiadwala’s Salman Khan flick Kick.
Just recently we heard that Deepika Padukone was trying hard to make her way into Salman Khan’s onscreen life, but Anushka might bag this role because she has more dates to spare. Dippy has a number of big-name projects already to work on, while Anushka has only three films in her kitty. That will make it easy for her to concentrate on the Sallu movie, and director Sajid Nadiadwala – who is making his directorial debut with Kick – might appreciate it if his leading lady had plenty of time to spare for him.
For now, we don’t know who finally will romance the Dabangg dude in Kick, but watch this space for all the developments on this South remake.
