In the world of making box office hits on Eid, Salman Khan stands as a force to be reckoned with. There is no denying that he is among the most bankable stars in the nation and enjoys a crazy fan following internationally too. While he has dazzled audiences with his blockbusters, Salman Khan has roared even louder with his Eid releases. Yet again proving his everlasting blockbuster charm on EID, Salman Khan is teaming up with Sajid Nadiadwala, and A.R. Murugadoss for Sikandar. As the title itself looks grand, it guarantees yet another blockbuster in the making for Eid 2025.

Salman Khan and Eid releases are a trend. With ‘Judwaa’ (1994), he made Eid a festival to be celebrated in Indian cinema too. The film took a bumper opening on the big screen and Salman scored big on the Eid festive. Following the Judwaa, he then arrived as an unshakable force with the mega-blockbuster ‘Wanted’ (2009). Salman came up with an out-and-out action commercial potboiler on Eid and has broken the barriers by achieving unanimous success. With Wanted, he consecutively released films on Eid every year.

As Sikandar is also joining the list, take a look at the movies that turned out to be blockbusters. Salman Khan not only released films on Eid, but he also gave the biggest blockbusters to Indian cinema on the festival and has made the festival a bankable day for everyone. Every film has taken a bumper opening on Eid, and with the series of Blockbusters, he has owned the Eid festival like a king.
