When it comes to releasing his movies, Salman Khan has three favourite dates. While one of them is the Eid, the other Diwali and the other are the Republic day and the Independence day. A lot of his movies that were released on these days in the past have gone on to become blockbusters. In 2013, Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express was getting released for the Eid and this year, after Shah Rukh Khan has once again blocked off the Diwali 2014 for his Happy New Year, now, Akshay Kumar pre books the republic day of 2015 for his own movie.
Jai Ho though will hit the theatres on the Republic day this year after getting postponed from 2013 into 2014. Akshay Kumar’s new film that will hit the screens on the 26th next year will once again be directed by Neeraj Pandey who has also directed Akshay Kumar’s Special 26.
However, January has always been a very unlucky month for bollywood we think. None of the movies that get released in January do that well, for instance, Salman Khan’s Veer which released in January did not do that well in the box office while Akshay Kumar’s Chandni Chowk to China bombed at the box office as well. We seriously hope that Jai Ho breaks the jinx.
