Sonakshi Sinha Lost 'Kick' Role Due To Fee Hike?Movie Talkies – Thu 24 Jan, 2013 12:00 AM IST
It is a well-known fact by now that actress Deepika Padukone will be romantically paired opposite Salman Khan in Sajid Nadiadwala's directorial debut Kick. However, what many not know is that before the dimpled dame came on board, Sonakshi Sinha was supposed to play the role.
Sources say that after agreeing to the project and receiving the signing amount, Sonakshi hiked her fee as Dabangg 2, her last flick with Salman, was a major hit. Sajid did not approve of this and following a dispute over financial remuneration, Sajid decided to replace her with Deepika Padukone.
Kick was earlier supposed to have been directed by Shirish Kunder, before Sajid decided to wield the megaphone. At the time, there were rumours that Kunder's failure to deliver a hit with Joker was the reason behind his ouster.
