There is so much speculation about this year’s Eid releases. While the big boss of box office, Salman Khan has had his date fixed with Eid ever since he struck gold with Wanted, there is a strong possibility of Shahrukh Khan coming up with Chennai Express to lure his fans on the festival in 2013. Now, the question is: who will visit the BO this Eid?
Shahrukh Khan’s film with Rohit ShettyChennai Express could hit the marquee this Eid as his arch rival Salman Khan may not meet the E-day deadline. Sallu’s Mental with Sohail Khan is yet to roll.
Earlier, there were reports that Shahrukh Khan may push the release date of Chennai Express to avert any sort of BO clash with Salman’s film, but as Mental is still in a nascent stage, chances are high that the film might not release this Eid, thus giving other producers a good chance to cash in on the big festival.
For three years in a row, Salman Khan has ruled the box office with his Eid releases. “Salman bhai had left his mark on the Eid date since the past three years, with Wanted, Bodyguard and Ek Tha Tiger. This year, it could be SRK who could stake a claim to the date, which is also a holiday everywhere,” a source tells a tabloid.
There is also buzz that Sunny Deol’s film Singh Saheb the Great may also release on Eid. The actor even told the press that they are aiming for the Eid release.
Eid is likely to fall on August 8, and this year it will surely come with a bang!
