Kick was Sajid's directorial debut and he will be helming the sequel too. The 2014 movie also starred Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Randeep Hooda in important roles. It is not known yet whether the two actors would be a part of Kick 2 as well.
Khan played Devilal aka Devil in Kick. He was a mysterious character who took the cop, played by Hooda, for a ride. But it is later revealed that Devilal was on a noble mission. Siddiqui played an evil businessman Shiv Kajra.
The makers haven’t revealed the release date as yet.
