New Delhi: Superstar Salman Khan has a packed calendar and looks like he will be working round-the-clock next year as well. Well, Bhaijaan has just wrapped up the Bangkok schedule of 'Race 3' and returned to Mumbai along with co-star Jacqueline Fernandez.

Recently, Sajid Nadiadwala announced that 'Kick 2' will be on roll soon and hit the screens on Christmas 2019. While Salman's name was seen on the formal announcement poster, the leading lady was not revealed.

The buzz picked up that Jacqueline, who was seen in the original 'Kick' will not be seen in the sequel and Amy Jackson's name popped up instead. However, filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala has refuted all such rumours.

Sajid told DNA, “We had already decided that there would be a sequel. I’ve been writing it for a year now. As I had a lot of other things on my plate, it was taking time. I’ll restart the writing process. We should be ready to roll the movie next year after Salman finishes all his current films. Kick 2 will release on Christmas 2019.”

Adding more, he said, “At an event, Salman was handing over the Best Director Award to me and he had said in jest, ‘Kick 2 is ready now, and Jacqueline, you are not there!’ He just joked and news spread that Jackie would be replaced in the film. Once I finish penning the script, I’ll be completely sure. But at present, she’s there in what I’m writing. But it’s too early to talk about it.”

So, you might actually see Salman-Jacky together on the big screens one more time!
