Actor Imran Khan, who plays a prominent role in Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai 2 - reportedly set for a release on Eid, says no one can overtake Salman Khan's territory of Eid release.
Ever since Salman's Wanted was released on Eid in
2008, it has been almost a tradition for the actor to have a
release around that time every year.
When asked if he is looking to overtake the territory
of Salman by releasing the film during Eid, Imran says, "Who
will overtake Salman Khan? Nobody is super enough to do that."
Last year, Salman's film Ek Tha Tiger hit the
theatres during Eid. But this year reportedly with no film of
Salman releasing around the festival, two films - Once Upon A
Time in Mumbaai 2 and Chennai Express - are likely to be
released that day.
This year, two of Salman's films, Mental (directed
by brother Sohail) and Kick (directed by Sajid Nadiadwala)
have been announced. Reportedly, both the films are likely to
release next year.
Chennai Express is romance comedy directed by Rohit
Shetty, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone.
Milan Luthria's Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2 is a
gangster-romantic thriller with Akshay Kumar in the lead role.
Imran, who will also be seen in Karan Johar's home
production Gori Tere Pyaar Mein opposite Kareena Kapoor,
says the shooting of the film is in progress.
