Salman Khan is famous for releasing his movies on Eid. He has given four consecutive Eid blockbusters - Wanted, Dabangg, Bodyguard and the most recent Ek Tha Tiger. Ek Tha Tiger has set a record of crossing 100 crore mark at the Box-Office in just five days of its release. This makes Salman Khan the most bankable star and an undisputed king of the Box-office. Now Salman Khan is planning to release his next film Sher Khan on Eid. But it seems that Akshay Kumar wants to challenge Salman Khan by releasing his next film Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2 at the same time.
A source told a leading daily, "Its God's decree, After Tiger, Bhai is destined to play Sher. We're going ahead with Sher Khan for Eid 2013."
Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan share a good friendship. So, it will be interesting to see whether they will stick to their present decision of releasing both the films on Eid or will they change their mind. Only time will tell!
