Sources say that Shah Rukh's plan is precisely because he delivered a big hit when Chennai Express released during the festive period last year broke all records of his film.

It seems that King Khan is following footsteps of his arch rival Salman because his several blockbusters like Wanted, Bodyguard, Dabangg and Ek Tha Tiger were released on Eid.

Shah Rukh Khan will be playing a bootlegger in Rahul Dholakia’s film Raees that is expected to go on the floors on Eid. He will be seen romancing actress Sonam Kapoor for the first time. The other lead character of the film is actor-turned-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar, who is playing a role of cop.

However, reports suggest that even Salman might choose the same weekend in 2015 for his upcoming venture that will be directed by Kabir Khan. The project is reportedly a remake of a very successful Telugu flick, Kick.
