For those who think that Salman Khan’s golden run at Eid started with ‘Wanted’ (2009) and continued with ‘Dabangg’, ‘Bodyguard’ and ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ — all of which rewrote box office history — here’s a forgotten fact.

Salman’s tryst with the festival actually began 17 years ago with Sajid Nadiadwala’s ‘Judwaa’ (1997). And now, the superstar and his friend-turned-director will reclaim Ramzan Eid of 2014 with their much-anticipated ‘Kick’.

The first schedule wrapped up in London and the filmmaker starts shooting with the actor in Mumbai today.

The producer, who’s also making his directorial debut with the film, says they weren’t aware of the coincidence. “After we decided to release the movie (also starring Jacqueline Fernandez and Randeep Hooda) for Eid 2014, during an office discussion about previous festival releases with Salman, someone pointed out that Judwaa came out on February 7, 1997, which was Eid,” recalls Sajid.

Interestingly, every time he has worked with Salman, their films likeJeet, Judwaa, Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega and Mujhse Shaadi Karogihave been successful. “Salman is as focused as he was before, whether it’s during the narration or the shooting. The only difference is that earlier I was just his producer and this time, I’m his director as well,” he says.

Kick, produced by Nadiadwala Grand son Entertainment Pvt Ltd, releases Eid 2014.

★ Salman Khan busy no time for Tweet

Salman Khan busy no time for Tweet
With superstar Salman Khan expected to leave to nite for a month long schedule of his latest film Kick in the UK, his fans will possibly face over a month long silence on his twitter handle @BeingSalmanKhan.

The actor last tweeted on July 18.
During his busy schedule of traveling for work the actor rarely tweets. He reasons, “I tweet from my Blackberry so when I travel abroad I don’t tweet.”

The actor was never known to be tech savvy. Till roughly a few yearsago when he took to the micro-blogging site, the actor would make do with a basic phone. Till his brother Arbaaz Khan goaded him to get on Twitter and he switched on to a Blackberry smart phone.

Just two years ago he had stopped tweeting for a while as he had forgotten his password. He had at the time said, “Every time I type it in (the pass word question), it says incorrect. The only one who can do it is Arbaaz. He knows how to do it. I’m not very good with phones. I can just text and I can make a call, receive a call.”

The actor makes no bones about not being computer savvy either.”No, I mean, I could type on computer now because of the Blackberry but I don’t know how to use it.

So, I’m not on email, I’m not on Google and all that stuff. If I want to know something, I tell one of my friends to get onto it.”

Earlier there was speculation that the Kick schedule in the UK would get delayed because of the actor’ salleged hit-and-run case hearing.

How ever with the Session’s court exempting the actor from further court appearance, producer-turned director Sajid Nadiadwala can heave a sigh of relief that his film’s shooting schedule will be completed smoothly and on time.

Charges were framed against the actor on Wednesday and the next hearing is slated for August 19.

The shooting schedule will start tomorrow in Glasgow as the location was apt for the rough feel that the film’s action scenes demand. Reportedly the film’s team has taken adequate precautions to ensure that Salman’s nerve disorder is not aggravated while performing the action scenes.
