As if it was not enough, last year's Eid once again saw Priyadarshan return with his favourite hero, Akshay Kumar in the comedy-horror flick, Bhool Bhulaiyaa. Barring Jaan–E–Mann which suffered at the hands of Shahrukh Khan's Don, all the remaining three above mentioned projects were box-office successes.
However this year, fans of Akshay Kumar will have to make do with his still running super-hit, Singh Is Kinng, which (as per trade sources), is expected to carry into Eid with a reasonable number of prints. And for others there are as many as three interesting and different films releasing around Eid. The Sanjay Dutt–Imran Khan starrer, Kidnap, releases on the 1st of October. Gandhi Jayanti (2nd October) will see Abhishek Bachchan's Drona and Nandita Das' Ramchand Pakistani releasing world wide.
