Actor Salman Khan, who has been locking Eid for the past four years to release his films, won't have any outing this year. The superstar's younger brother Arbaaz says there are plenty of interesting dates to choose from and no need to do a rush job on Mental. Since 2009, every year Salman
had a release on Eid. It started with Wanted, followed by Dabangg in 2010, Bodyguard in 2011, and 2012 spy thriller Ek Tha Tiger. Interestingly, all of them turned out to be box office blockbusters.
This year Eid is on Aug 8 and Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar are set to lock horns at the box office as their films Chennai Express and Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again, respectively, are being readied for the festival release.
"I am presuming that they (fans) would have liked to release Mental on Eid.
