Kick is the first film of Salman Khan to have crossed the Rs 200 crore mark. But it was a film that was earlier supposed to be directed by Shirish Kunder. A lot has been said about relations between Farah Khan and Sajid Nadiadwala getting adversely affected because of Shirish not directing Kick. Sajid Nadiadwala rubbished all the news reports and said, "Shirish left the film. He said he is not comfortable. He said if you want I'll edit the film. When the first look promo of Kick was launched, Farah called. Your next question will be about Sajid Khan, so let me tell you that Sajid didn't want to do Housefull 3. He came to office and said I can't do it. There's no friction. A sister is sister after all. It's a small world."
Salman Khan in a Bollywood Hungama exclusive video interview stated that, "Of course I'll act in Sajid Nadiadwala's directorial next. But his nervousness will start now as to which script to choose and how to go about doing it (since his debut has become so big)." On being asked about his directorial next and how he reacts to Salman's offer-and-statement, Nadiadwala said, "This year has been very good for me. 2015 and 2016 are packed with my productions. I don't think for the next two three years I'll have any script in my mind organically (to direct). Salman is the reason because of whom I turned a director. Production is a different thing. Being a Coach is different from actually getting on the field with a bat and playing upfront. It's very nice, a big compliment coming from him."
Sajid Nadiadwala clarified that the famous dialogue Main dil mein aata hoon, samajh mein nahin from Kick was not written by him. "All the dialogues are written by Rajat Arora," he said. With regards to reports of Hrithik Roshan and Jacqueline Fernandez being part of Kabir Khan's next, he said, "work is going on for Kabir's next. Narration has taken place but too early to talk about it."
Big actors like Salman, Ranbir, Deepika, Saif, Katrina, Akshay are acting in his projects making him one of the top independent Producers. "When you have good relations, your commitment to your commerce is right, your payments are right and then when you're delivering good hits, a combination of all this results in people wanting to work with you," the victorious Producer-Director signed off.
