Will Eid be lucky for Salman Khan’s ‘Bodyguard’?

Salman heads the list of Bollywood stars who have found lucky dates for the release of their films

Not only Salman Khan, but the entire industry, along with the trade analysts and distributors, has eyes glued on to the upcoming Eid and Ganpati weekend to see if Sallu can manage to maintain his lucky Eid streak. After two back-to-back hits that released on the holy-day(Wanted and Dabanng) Sallu is expecting another big BO win with Bodyguard. Even though he brushes aside the buzz about him becoming synonymous with Eid, he says that he is more excited about the “Hindu-Muslim revelry” this time around.

On the other hand, it’s well-known that Shahrukh Khan prefers the Diwali season. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kal Ho Na Ho, Veer Zara and Om Shanti Om, which released during that time, went on to become huge hits. This time too he has timed his home production RA.One for Diwali — October 26. And Aamir has his fixation for the Christmas weekend— his biggest hits in the last four years have released at that time: Tare Zameen Par, Ghajini and 3 Idiots.

But Vidya Balan will be the first female actor to aim for a previously lucky date. Her film Kahaani directed by Sujoy Ghosh is slated to come out Jan 6, 2012, the first weekend of the new year. No One Killed Jessica hit the screens on the first weekend of 2010 and was a success.
