"I am presuming that they (fans) would have liked to release Mental on Eid. It's not that they have not thought about it, but the practicality of coming on Eid may have been an issue. For his (Salman's) film to come on Eid, he should have started as early as January. But they started sometime in March. So it became difficult," Arbaaz told IANS.
In the last few years, Salman has delivered hits like Wanted, Dabangg, Bodyguard and Ek Tha Tiger during Eid. And this year, Sallu's arch rival Shahrukh Khan will be locking hors with Akshay Kmar at the Box Office, as both Chennai Express and Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again are releasing on the same time.
"There is no need to do a rush job on any film. The stakes are too high, the expectations are too high. So, no need to get fixated because a Salman Khan-starrer is a Salman Khan-starrer. You may miss one day in a year, but there is at least four or five dates which are equally exciting. So you can pick and choose those dates and make that into an event," added the 45-year-old.
