Kick is a 2014 Hindi action thriller film, directed and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under the Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment banner. It stars Salman Khan in the lead role, while Jacqueline Fernandez, Randeep Hooda, Nawazuddin Siddiqui appear in supporting roles. It is a remake of the Telugu film of the same name, and the screenplay was adapted by Nadiadwala and Chetan Bhagat.
In 2009, Raviteja was first approached for lead role in the Hindi remake. Later it was announced that producer Sajid Nadiadwala had signed A. R. Murugadoss as the director. Sirish Kunder was signed to direct the film after Murugadoss was unable to direct the film. Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez had been signed on to act in the film, directed by Sajid Nadiadwala. Apart from Ileana D'Cruz who starred in the original 2009 film of the same name, Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma, Sonakshi Sinha, Priyanka Chopra and supermodel Angela Jonsson were also considered for the female lead, however Fernandez eventually secured the role. US based Abhijat Joshi, who had written the script of Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. and Lage Raho Munnabhai was approached to write the script of the film in 2009. Nadiawala wanted the script to be prepared during the release of 3 Idiots when Joshi had come back to India. Chetan Bhagat eventually wrote the script for the film. Apart from India, the film is released in France, Germany, Maldives and 42 other countries. It will be screened on 4400 screens throughout India and about 700 screens in other countries.
Nadiadwala received an invitation from the Korea Tourism Organization, and after his team visited South Korea in September 2011, he signed an agreement to shoot portions of this project and others in that country. The shooting of the film began on 27 July 2013 in Scotland where Khan shot a car crash scene and helicopter crash scene in Glasgow. Shooting was also done in Delhi. In October 2013 while the shooting was in progress outside the city of Mumbai, the Film Studio Settings & Allied Mazdoor Union asked Sajid to pay them wages for one and a half shifts which he refused. The workers stopped shooting for a week which only resumed when Sajid agreed that the worker's demands would be met. Allegedly, the shooting of movie 'Roy' had to postponed due to Fernandez's commitments to the movie. It is also reported that Fernandez started learning the Urdu language specifically for the film with a coach who was hired by Khan. The film was also shot at Mehboob Studios during February in 2014  and also at the Film City studio in Mumbai. While the shooting of the film was going on in Mumbai in March 2014, Khan's body double, Ajay, was injured while shooting a stunt scene when Ajay was supposed to jump from the first floor of a house onto a railway track, but went through sugar glass which injured his face, and required hospitalization. The film's climax was shot in Poland. Khan wanted to shoot part of the film in United Kingdom but he was refused a visa by the authorities.
Teaser and trailer
The teaser poster was released on 9 June. Khan had decided to release the theatrical trailer of the film in a single screen theatre, Gaiety Galaxy, in Mumbai with his fans on 15 June but before that few theatrical posters would be released. He decided to do so because he considers single screen theatres lucky for himself. The theatre cancelled shows from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m for the release of the trailer. The trailer which was launched has made an impact on YouTube as it's one of the most watched Indian film trailers.
