MUMBAI—The man who is often called the Czar of sequels – Sajid Nadiadwala – has announced the second part of his highest-grossing film, “Kick” (2013) that will release on the heels of Salman Khan’s “Bharat” (Eid 2019) on Christmas 2019.

“Kick 2” marks the eighth collaboration of the actor and filmmaker after blockbusters like “Jeet” (1996), “Judwaa,” (1997), “Mujhse Shaadi Karogi” (2004) and “Kick” itself, though they also collaborated on “Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega” (2000) and “Jaan-E-Mann” (2006), with Khan also making a cameo in “Judwaa 2” (2017).

“Kick” showed Khan as a devilish crook, with a Robin Hood side to him. It remains to be seen how this film’s plot works out on as befitting a sequel in spirit.

“Kick” was Nadiadwala’s first film to enter the 200 crore club. It also marked his directorial debut and “Kick 2” will be his next film as a director, even as he is producing several films now, including “Baaghi 2” and a film each with director Abhishek Verman (“2 States”) and Suniel Shetty’s son Ahaan. He is also working with Hrithik Roshan in his co-production “Super 30.”

The filmmaker is also producing “Housefull 4,” his popular franchise, as the first comedy film, which he has now announced in 3-D! Slated to release in Diwali 2019, “Housefull 4” is being mounted on a huge scale. Set in two different eras, the current times and an earlier period one, the film is projected to have a VFX budget of 75 crore!

Akshay Kumar and Abhishek Bachchan are the so far confirmed leading men. Sajid Khan is back to helming the franchise after a miss in the 2016 film “Housefull 3.”
