Salman in Ravi Teja's shoes
While Hindi movies starring Salman Khan are being remade in the south (the latest is 'Gabbar Singh' which is inspired by 'Dabangg'), Salman is keen to remake south Indian movies in Bollywood. He will soon start shooting for the Hindi version of 'Kick'.
A popular director will wield the megaphone for the movie, which will have music by the young gun G. V. Prakash Kumar. Confirming the development, the music composer says, 'This is again a big league. I will strive to give my best.'

'Kick' completed 50 days in 220 centers, of which 200 were in Andhra Pradesh. The film was declared a blockuster and was the only success for the Tollywood industry that summer.
