Salman gives Chetan's script the boot?

Mumbai, Mar 17 : If media reports are to be believed Bollywood's superstar Salman Khan may have asked another successful Indian author to rework the script of Kick, giving Chetan Bhagat the boot.

Kick is an upcoming Bollywood comedy action thriller which is scheduled to start filming from June 1. It stars Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone along with Randeep Hooda in a supporting role and is still in its pre-production stage.

It is to be directed and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala.

In October last it was announced that best-selling author Chetan Bhagat would be the screenwriter of Kick, and Rajat Arora would write the dialogues.

However it looks like the 'Dabangg' Khan is not very happy with the script so far and may be looking at alternatives.

Reports state that Chetan went to meet Salman along with Sajid to fill him in on the progress of the script. Salman, after reading it felt that it did not match up to its Telegu predecessor and needed a dose of commercial masala.

Even as rumours suggest that Chetan has not taken any offence with the actor's demand, the author himself completely denies ever meeting the actor.

He goes on to add that that the script isn't complete yet and the only people he has had any interactions with are Sajid Nadiadwala and his team.

But it does seem as if the author with a penchant of putting off the Khans may now have to clip his screenwriter wings, if he wants to keep his highly hyped Bollywood debut.
