"This time Salman Khan is back on Eid with Sajid Nadiadwala's 'Kick' and we are hoping to recreate the magic and success of his earlier movies during this period," said Amrita Pandey, VP and Head, Marketing & Distribution, Studios, Disney India.
"It will release in over 42 countries, which includes non-traditional markets like France, Germany, Morocco and Maldives. "We are also exploring delayed releases in Egypt, Taiwan and China. Eid is a family occasion and we want to give people a reason to celebrate it with 'Kick'," added Pandey. The advance bookings for "Kick" started Wednesday and Thadani says that the data promises a bumper opening for the movie which stars Sri Lankan actress Jacqueline Fernandez as the female lead.
"As far as the advance booking is concerned, the film is going on full swing be it single screens or multiplex. I am confident the film will have a bumper opening," he said. Sanjay Ghai from Mukta Arts Delhi said: "The Friday shows have already been booked and we hope the film will be beyond a blockbuster." According to reports, "Kick" is sold out in Dubai too.
Why not? In the past, Salman's Eid releases "Wanted" and "Ek Tha Tiger" turned out to be gold spinners.
