Superstar Salman Khan, who has given back-to-back
hits in the last few years, amidst the festive season of Eid, won't
have any outing this year. But, bro Arbaaz Khan explains the reason
for missing out on this year's festival.
"I am presuming that they (fans) would have liked to release
Mental on Eid.
It's not that they have not thought about it, but the practicality
of coming on Eid may have been an issue. For his (Salman's) film to
come on Eid, he should have started as early as January. But they
started sometime in March. So it became difficult," Arbaaz told
In the last few years, Salman has delivered hits like
Wanted, Dabangg, Bodyguard and Ek Tha Tiger
during Eid. And this year, Sallu's arch rival Shahrukh Khan will be
locking hors with Akshay Kmar at the Box Office, as both Chennai
Express and Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again are releasing on the
"There is no need to do a rush job on any film. The stakes are
too high, the expectations are too high. So, no need to get fixated
because a Salman Khan-starrer is a Salman Khan-starrer. You may
miss one day in a year, but there is at least four or five dates
which are equally exciting. So you can pick and choose those dates
and make that into an event," added the 45-year-old.
