Everyone knows that Salman Khan’s movies, which went Blockbusters, were all released on Eid. Be it last year’s Ek Tha Tiger, Bodyguard (2011), Dabangg (2010) or Wanted (2009); all were released during Eid and were superhits. Now it is being said that Salman is going to release his latest movie Mental during Republic Day.
According to reports, the forthcoming movie of Salman Khan which also stars Daisy Shah and Sana Khan directed by his brother Sohail Khan will be released on January 24, 2014. Mental is the remake of Chiranjeevi’s Telugu movie Stalin (2006).
According to a leading website, it is said that due to Salman’s medical trip, the movie could not be shot on proper schedule and when Sohail consulted Salman, they came up with Jan 24th as a date of release. It is also said that Sohail, though wants to finish the movie as soon as possible, doesn’t want to compromise on the quality of film.
On the other hand, Shahrukh Khan’s Chennai Express, directed by Rohit Shetty, which stars Deepika Padukone in the lead role, is all set to release on Eid. Shahrukh’s last release was YRF’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan which was a Blockbuster.
It is strange that Salman left the Eid slot to his arch rival Shahrukh Khan, who is about to release his movie Chennai Express on this day, considering Eid has always proven lucky for Salman Khan. But not to forget Salman’s last release Dabangg 2 was released during Christmas and was also a Blockbuster.
Now it should be seen if Salman’s sacrifice on Eid to Shahrukh will prove lucky for both Mental and Chennai Express.
