Salman Khan: Only Jacqueline Can Replace Zeenat Aman

Mumbai — Superstar Salman Khan recently revealed that he is a big fan of yesteryear actress Zeenat Aman.

The 48-year-old actor, who was here to launch the trailer of his upcoming film “Kick,” which stars Jacqueline Fernandez opposite him, feels only the Sri Lankan beauty can replace the legendary actress.

“I have always been a big fan of Zeenat Aman-ji and even today I am her big fan. If anyone can replace her, it’s Jacqueline ‘Aman’ Fernandez,” Salman told reporters here.

“Kick” marks the directorial debut of producer Sajid Nadiadwala.

“I have never worked with an actress who has tantrums. After this film, she (Jacqueline) will kick all of us,” he said in a lighter vein.

Salman’s character “devil” is reported to have many shades and the actor has performed quite a few stunts while romancing Jacqueline in the film.

“I will not reveal what my character is in ‘Kick.’ All I can say is it’s a mischievous and naughty role; that’s why it’s called devil,” the actor said.

The much-awaited trailer was launched amid media and fan frenzy at Gaiety Galaxy in suburban Bandra.

The trailer is packed with daredevil stunts and romantic sequences, besides Salman’s trademark one-liners.

“Kick” also stars Randeep Hooda and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in prominent roles. The film is a remake of the 2009 Telugu film of the same name.

“It (the film) is adapted from a South film, but the writers have made changes to the story. I think only 10 percent of it is the same,” Nadiadwala said.

Produced by UTV Motion Pictures and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Pvt. Ltd., “Kick” is slated for a July 25 release.
