Salman Khan And Eid 2020: No Film!!! Shah Rukh Khan has the coveted Diwali date while Mr. perfectionist Aamir Khan prefers the Christmas weekend, except for Salman Khan, nothing is more synonymous than the festive Eid weekend. Ever since 2009, Salman has had an Eid release almost once a year. Eid and Salman became an association hard to miss not only for his fans but also for trade pundits who make box office predictions.
However, 2020 are going to be an exception. Salman won’t have an Eid release this year. Salman’s ‘Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai’ was touted because the big-ticket release in 2020 and was also in news because of the much-talked-about clash with Akshay Kumar’s ‘Laxmmi Bomb’.
Salman Khan And Eid 2020 has no film to be release
However, the coronavirus pandemic has put a bump within the film’s release plan. With no films hitting theatres anytime soon, ‘Radhe’ has been placed on hold and is yet to be ready for a theatrical release.
To gauge the impact of no Salman release for Eid this year, ETimes spoke exclusively to senior trade analyst Taran Adarsh and a few Salman fans to ask them their reaction on what proportion will the box office miss the superstar this Eid?
Speaking about the identical, Taran said, ” This year in fact as we all know, no films will release during the festive week of Eid and it’s been a convention, actually… If you notice over the past decade or more perhaps, Salman Khan movies have released year after year during the festive occasion of Eid. This year, of course, are going to be an exception. “
“There was another exception in 2013 when ‘Chennai Express’ had released and Salman didn’t have a release within the Eid week. But this year again are going to be an exception. And this year was, of course, visiting be special because it absolutely was visiting be a clash between Akshay Kumar’s ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ and Salman Khan’s ‘Radhe’. They were presupposed to clash at the box office during the Eid week. But this year it won’t happen.”
He further added, “Having said that, I believe I might prefer to add that there are two songs and a few sequences and in fact the post-production work pending for ‘Radhe’. By post-production I mean the editing, dubbing, mixing, background music, all the things that happen once the shooting is complete, that’s pending. So once the lockdown gets over, once the govt gives the green signal to travel to figure ahead, then I believe these people are going to be completing the balance shooting. Again, maintaining social distancing and that I am sure strict norms are going to be followed. But in fact, that may take time. So Eid won’t see the discharge of two big films this year, hopefully, next year. “
“Yes, we are able to definitely expect big films and also I believe at a time when COVID-19 has really spread across the world, it’s an outbreak we should always first await healing, we should always first await everyone to be okay, getting their life back on target then have a look at cinema releases across the world.“
Another trade expert from the industry, on the condition of anonymity, said how Salman has made the festival of Eid a mainstream for Hindi cinema. “Diwali and Xmas were always considered a lucrative window for film releases until the discharge of ‘Wanted’ on Eid 2009 followed up by ‘Dabangg’ on Eid 2010.
Both films proved to be a hit story and Salman single-handedly made Eid a lucrative window for film releases. Over the years, Eid has gotten synonymous with Salman and it wouldn’t be wrong to mention that it’s him who made this festival mainstream for Hindi releases. ‘Radhe’ was hot within the trade particularly because of the title and also the trade was confident that the film would set the box-office lit because of a robust recall value related to the title.
It absolutely was poised to be within the ‘Wanted’ space, which is definitely among the most effective Eid releases of Salman. Insiders have great things to mention about the dimensions and elegance quotient within the film, and that we eagerly await the film’s release. Given the circumstances, an Eid release by Salman is going to be missed, but within the larger picture it’s for the security of the audience.”
We also spoke to a zealous fan, Shivam Tiwari, who could be a student and asked his reaction on missing out on a Salman film this year. He said, “Salman Khan and Eid release has been the foremost ‘iconic combo’ within the history of Bollywood. No other actor ever made a release day this iconic. He never disappoints his fans and always manages to convey an ideal Eidi once a year. But this year, I’m definitely visiting miss watching him on the massive screen.”
Another diehard fan from the united kingdom named Iftikhar Khan said how he never misses watching FDFS of a Salman film. “Salman sir films’ have always been a present for us on the occasion of Eid. The celebration is incomplete without Salman sir on the silver screen. He has delivered blockbuster films once a year. I’ve got never missed watching his films first-day first show at the theatre. However, this year, I’m visiting miss watching him on the massive screen. All his fans were excited to determine him back in his ‘Wanted’ avatar.“
