Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone fans are eager to see the duo together in a film. While Salman has done films with most of the leading ladies of Bollywood, Deepika Padukone remains that one actress who never shared screen with him. During Sultan, there were rumours that not Anushka Sharma, but Deepika was supposed to play the role of Aarfa. However, things didn't materialise well that time. But DP and Dabangg Khan pair is most likely to be seen in Kick 2. According to the recent reports, Deepika will be paired opposite Salman Khan in Kick sequel.
A source from Sajid Nadiadwala's production house informed a leading dialy that the never-seen-before Jodi Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone is in talks with the makers for Kick 2. The source told the daily, "If you remember, Deepika was the first choice for Kick. But somehow it didn’t work out. Jacqueline was brought in and Kick changed the course of her career." For Kick 2 Deepika’s role is being carefully developed. The source said, "Deepika can’t play just a typical Salman heroine. Her role has to be as powerful as Salman’s. Sajid is working on it, injecting heft into the female lead."
Many other filmmakers tried to make films with Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone in the lead, however, it never worked out.
Kick, which released in 2014, had Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead role. The film also had Nawazuddin Siddiqui as the villain. No official confirmation has arrived from the either end of the stars. Earlier, Disha Patani was also rumoured to be doing Kick 2, however recently, she denied being part of the project.
