And here comes the latest news that is doing the rounds. If recent report is anything to go by, then Deepika Padukone is going to replace Jacqueline Fernandez in the Kick sequel. Yes, you heard that right. If everything goes well, then for the first time Salman and Deepika will come together in a film.
Deepika Padukone for Kick 2 leading lady?
A source told BollywoodLife that since Jacqueline is starring opposite Salman Khan in Race 3, the makers of Kick 2 want to re-cast the female lead in their film. “Deepika Padukone is being considered for Kick 2 with the film going on floors sometime next year. As Jacqueline and Salman are already working together in Race 3, it only makes sense to give audience a fresh pairing,” the source said.
For the uninitiated, before Jacqueline Amy Jackson was approached for the female lead in Kick. However she opted out of the project due to date issues. And for the longest time her name had been doing the rounds for the sequel too. And now it looks like, not Amy but Race 3 costs Jacqueline Kick 2 and favours for Deepika.
While few days back, reporter asked Jacqueline if she would be a part of the second installment. The Sri Lankan beauty hinted the possibilities of getting replaced. “A lot of changes are happening on a scripting level, as well as other things. I don’t know. Ask Sajid.” Jacqueline said.
Salman Khan offered Deepika Padukone her first film before Om Shanti Om

“He offered me my first film when I was too young and I was not ready to be in front of the camera. I will always be grateful to him. Just the fact that he offered me a film was a great thing. It is taking a long time for us to come together on screen, so I think there is something special waiting for us,” Deepika told at the promotion of Ram Leela in 2013.
