Eid and Salman Khan a cinematic union that has become legendary. The festive season is incomplete without Bhaijaan gracing the silver screen with his charisma

Mumbai: Festivals have become extremely profitable for the Indian film industry. Movie producers and actors, particularly Bollywood’s ‘Khans’, try to schedule releases over festival weekends because they draw bigger audiences – and get a better response. While Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan like putting out films during Diwali or Christmas respectively, when it comes to Eid – there’s nobody to touch Salman Khan. His movies are an Eid gift from Bhaijaan.
