At the trailer launch of his new film Kick, Salman Khan answered questions in his unique way.

Salman Khan is well known for his mood swings.

And he seemed to be in a unique one during the trailer launch of his upcoming film Kick at a suburban multiplex in Mumbai on Sunday evening.

When a journalist asked him to comment on his friend Preity Zinta’s molestation charges against her former boyfriend Ness Wadia, Salman answered the question with a dance!

Well, to be fair, the dance wasn’t his first reaction.

First, he told the journalist he was at the wrong place.

When the journalist explained that Preity is Salman’s close friend and colleague, since they’ve worked together in numerous films, Salman repeated that he was at the wrong place.

Then, he asked for the mike to be taken away from her.

Salman’s last release Jai Ho may not have been a big hit but his fan following hasn’t obviously reduced.

Huge crowds gathered outside the theatre, as fans hoped to get a glimpse of their favourite star.

Inside the theatre, the madness continued. When the Kick trailer started playing, every scene was greeted by whistles and screams. It was only when the trailer was played for the third time that one could actually hear the dialogues.

The rest of the Kick cast -- Jacqueline Fernandez, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Randeep Hooda -- were also present, along with producer-director Sajid Nadiadwala, writer Chetan Bhagat and UTV-Disney head Siddharth Roy Kapur.

Salman refused to discuss his role in the film, saying: “I will not speak about the role because log imagine kar lete hain ki kya hoga film mein aur phir film nahin dekhte (people imagine what the film would be about and then not watch it)."

But he did talk at length about his heroine, Jacqueline.

"I have always been and still am a big fan of Zeenat Aman. If anyone can replace her, it has to be Jacqueline Aman Fernandez!" Salman exclaimed.

Kick is a remake of the 2009 Telugu film of same name but first-time director Sajid Nadiadwala claims that the story in the new film is different.

“It is adapted from a south film but the writers have made changes in the story. Only 10 per cent of it is same,” Nadiadwala says.

Kick is scheduled to release during Eid this year.
