Original ‘Kick’ filmmaker, Surender Reddy feels the Hindi remake does not do justice to original

Chennai, July 28:  Filmmaker Surender Reddy, who is the creator of the original “Kick” in Telugu, feels the Hindi remake didn’t do justice to his film or Salman Khan. He says the makers of the remake didn’t understand the spirit of the original.

“Watched the Hindi remake of ‘Kick’. It definitely does not do justice to our original movie or to Salman. ‘Kick’ would have been the biggest movie ever for Salman if the makers understood the spirit of ‘Kick’,” Surender posted on his Facebook page. Salman’s “Kick”, which released July 25, has minted over Rs. 50 crore in the first two days since release.

Produced and directed by Sajid Nadiadwala, “Kick” also features Jacqueline Fernandez, Randeep Hooda, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Mithun Chakraborty and Saurabh Shukla in important roles. Surender Reddy’s “Kick” originally released in 2009 and went on to be a blockbuster and the biggest in the career of Ravi Teja, who played the lead role of an adrenaline junkie.
