The film, which features Khan in the lead role, is set for Eid release. Other films released in the first two quarters of the year had an average performance, but "Kick" is expected to end the dull period at the box office.

"Kick" is one of the biggest releases this year and with Khan and Eid factor, it is set to increase the footfalls in theaters.

The buzz around the film is tremendous and it is going to be a treat for Khan's fans across the world, according to trade analyst Vajir Singh.

"The craze for 'Kick' is humongous among the audience. Salman and Eid is the biggest combination (sic). The theatrical trailer, too, has generated great response. Salman apni Eidi lene zaroor aayega. (Salman will come to take his Eidi)," trade analyst Taran Adarsh told Hindustan Times.

"'Kick' is, by far, the most anticipated film of the year. This is evident by the hysteria that the trailer has generated. Due to our presence in big cities and smaller towns, we are extremely excited about the film. We are getting an amazing number of inquiries from audiences," Ashish Saksena, COO, Big Cinemas, told HT.
