Finally, the wait is over for Deepika Padukone and Salman Khan fans as the two may finally join hands for a film. According to reports, the actress is being considered for Sajid Nadiadwala's Kick 2. The pairing of Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone has been on the cards on many occasions, but nothing materialised. A source from producer Sajid Nadiadwala’s production house informed a leading daily that the never-seen-before jodi of Salman and Deepika might soon be seen on the big screen.

The source told the daily, "If you remember, Deepika was the first choice for Kick. But somehow, it didn’t work out. Jacqueline [Fernandez] was brought in and Kick changed the course of her career." For Kick 2, Deepika’s role is being carefully developed. The source said, "Deepika can’t play just a typical Salman heroine. Her role has to be as powerful as Salman’s. Sajid is working on it, injecting heft into the female lead.

"There have been several occasions when filmmakers tried to bring in Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone together for a film but they never made it to the big screen together. In 2014 released Kick, Jacqueline Fernandez was paired opposite Salman Khan. The film also starred Nawazuddin Siddiqui who played the main antagonist.

On the work front, while Salman is busy with Dabangg 3 and Bharat. Deepika has Chhapaak up for release in January next year.
