It’s for the first time in many years that no Salman Khan film is releasing on Eid. As the theatres remain shut due to the ongoing lockdown, Bhaijaan’s Radhe was postponed for a later release. Earlier, it was scheduled to hit the screens on the occasion of Eid on May 22.
But, Salman Khan has come up with an idea to cheer his fans who are disappointed because of the postponement of Radhe. The actor is presenting a special music video to his fans as Eidi on May 25.
While not much is out about the song yet, it can be expected that it will be around Eid and love.
Salman Khan is currently in quarantine at his farmhouse in Panvel, Mumbai. Earlier he released two songs, Pyaar Karona and Tere Bina, which he recorded and shot at his farmhouse. While Pyaar Karona features Salman alone, in Tere Bina he appears with Jacqueline Fernandez.
Since 2010, Salman Khan made it a point to release a film of his on Eid, except in 2013. Almost all his films, which were released on Eid, performed exceptionally good at the box office.
The ritual of sorts of releasing a film on Eid started with Dabangg in 2010. The film earned Rs 14.5 crore on its opening day. In 2011, Salman Khan came with Bodyguard, which earned Rs 21.6 crore on Day 1. Ek Tha Tiger came in 2012 and set the box office registers ringing as it collected Rs 32.93 crore on its opening day. 2013 saw a break and in 2014, the Dabangg actor came up with Kick, which earned Rs 26.4 crore on the first day of its release.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan released in 2015 and registered the first day collection of Rs 27.25 crore. Sultan was released on Eid in 2016 which gave the actor the first day collection of Rs 36.54 crore. Tubelight earned Rs 21.15 crore on Day 1 in 2017. 2018 was for Race 3 as it opened with Rs 29.17 crore. 2019 saw the best first day collection for Salman Khan as Bharat earned Rs 42.3 crore on its opening day.
While fans may be a little disappointed as they’ll not be able to celebrate Eid with a Salman Khan film, the announcement of an Eid special song will surely bring smile to their faces.
