Is Deepika Padukone in Salman Khan’s Kick?

If what we hear is true, the leggy lass will be doing some kickass stunts with Sallu bhai in Sajid Nadiadwala’s latest venture

Deepika’s dream run with some really interesting film offers continues. The Bangalore beauty is excited about her forthcoming films –Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express, Ramleela and Kochadiyan. Dippy certainly has a choc-a-block calendar this year with these four movies releasing back to back. And now Deepika is all set to do some kickass action with none other than Salman Khan, we are told. Yes, the leggy lass has reportedly been finalised for Sallu’s much talked about action drama Kick!

Remember the brouhaha when this film was finally decided on – Shirish Kunder was to direct it, but then he was suddenly ejected from the project and Sajid Nadiadwala took over the helm. Then too many female actors’ names were floating about as Salman’s co-star, with none of them being confirmed…until now.

There were many considerations for the female lead for the movie, but the producers were finding it difficult to zero in on one name that could match Salman’s finesse in action scenes. A little birdie chirped to us that Sallu showed a special interest in Deepika. In fact, bhai was so impressed with Deepika’s sporting achievements that he thought no one else could do justice to the role better than the leggy Cocktail babe. The makers of Kick too were keen to have a sportsperson on the board who could perform high-octane stunts. Naturally, the badminton champ bagged the part with ease.

If this story is true – and we hear it is – this will be Deepika’s first film opposite the Dabangg dude. We are sure that bhai’s Midas touch and Dippy’s magnificent screen presence will charm the audiences in Kick. Tell us, BollywoodLifers, what do you have to say about this new on-screen jodi? You like?
