Eid has always been lucky for Bollywood superstar Salman Khan. Most of his hit films including "Wanted", "Dabangg" and "Kick" were released during the festival.
His upcoming flick "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" is all set to be released this Eid. Slated to hit theatres on 17 July, "BB" is the most-awaited flick of Salman this year.
On this occasion, 'Hanuman Chalisa' will be heard at theatres screening the movie, as Khan is playing the character of Hanuman Bhakt in "Bajrangi Bhaijaan".
The "Dabangg" actor has also decided to release his film "Sultan" on Eid next year. Incidentally, it will be clashing with Shah Rukh Khan's "Raees".
Apparently, Eid 2017 will see the release of "Dabangg 3."
Let's take a look at Salman's blockbuster films released during Eid.
The Prabhu Deva directorial was released on Eid 2009 and turned out to be the second highest grosser at the box office that year. The film was a remake of Telugu film "Pokiri" featuring Mahesh Babu and Illeana D'Cruz.
