The filmmaker is all set to direct Salman Khan in the Hindi version of Kick. It was earlier reported that Bollywood director Shirish Kunder would direct the film. However, the Telugu filmmaker apparently got a call from the production house stating that they feel that the original director would do justice in the Hindi version as well.
However, the proposed project is expected to kick-start in mid-2012, as Salman Khan is fully busy with his other projects like Ek Tha Tiger and Sher Khan. Meanwhile, Surender Reddy is reportedly in talks with a leading actor for his next Telugu venture.
