India’s bestselling author Chetan Bhagat will be making his debut as screenplay writer with Salman Khan’s movie ‘Kick’, remake of Telugu movie of same name.
Chetan Bhagat isn’t new to Bollywood as his books ‘Five Point Someone’ and ‘One Night at Call Center’ have already been adapted into movies. His other two books ‘3 Mistakes of My Life’ and ‘2 States’ are being made into movies.
“Happy to share with you that I`ll be writing the screenplay of `Kick` starring Salman Khan and directed by Sajid Nadiadwala. Have known both Salman and Sajid Nadiadwala for a while and been wanting to work with them,” wrote Chetan Bhagat on his Twitter page.
The author said that he would customize the screenplay to suit the sensibilities of Bollywood audience.
“Couldn`t have asked for a better screenplay debut. Will be adapting Kick from original Telugu superhit, with fair amount of changes as well. Huge expectations, need all ur support! Thanks!” he further tweeted.
‘Kick’, directed by Surrender Reddy, starring Ravi Teja and Ileana, went on to become a superhit in Telugu.
With South Indian movie remakes like ‘Wanted’, ‘Reddy’, ‘Force’, ‘Singham’ and ‘Rowdy Rathore’ doing tremendous business at box-office, the makers of ‘Kick’ will expect same fate for this remake as well.
