Salman Khan owns Eid and there is no denying this fact. Eid is considered as the second best release period after Christmas. That is mainly because Muslims stay away from theatres during the whole month of Ramadan. This results in a huge boost to Eid which is a national holiday.

In recent years, Eid is associated with a Salman release. In fact, it was Salman who made Eid a lucrative period when he started the trend of Eid release in 2009 with Wanted. Since then, he has only missed it once in 2013 when he did not have any release. Almost all of his films have opened well and some of them were record openers.

Take a look at his recent Eid releases.

Salman Khan and Eid: A Box Office Love Story

By looking at the list it is clear that a blockbuster is given for Salman Khan on Eid. The opening of films was historic on holidays and was excellent on a normal Friday. (Dabangg and Bodyguard were released on Eid day while Ek Tha Tiger on Independence Day).

Now Salman Khan is back with Tubelight. Interestingly he is working again with Kabir Khan who gave him the first ATBB on Eid. From the promos, it seems that Tubelight is also on the same lines as BB. Now it is yet to be seen if it can match BB in terms of lifetime gross.
