Ever since the sequel was announced, there have been talks about the film's leading lady and whether actress Jacqueline Fernandez will be reprising her role from the original film.

When asked about her casting, he simply said, "Jacqueline should be there, yes.”

Fans had loved Jacqueline and Salman's chemistry in Kick and will certainly be happy that the duo will be returning for the sequel.

This came as a shock to everyone and the actress had later even given a statement saying, "Well I was not even aware that a sequel of the film has been planned. If Salman has said that (that she will not be a part of the film) then that's fine. He's done a lot for me. Hope we team up soon for a film."Kick 2 Starring Salman Khan Will Not Release on Eid 2020, Confirms Sajid Nadiadwala.
