Muslim clerics ask devotees to stay away from Salman Khan movies on Eid: Reports

New Delhi: This piece of news might come as a shock to many of the Salman Khan fans.
According to reports published in an English daily, the maulavis of Bhopal had sent a message to thousands of devotees gathered at Bhopal`s Eidgah for the Id-ul-Fitr namaaz- not to watch any films on Eid.
Though the Qazi refrained from taking the superstars name, his hint in the message clearly points towards Salman. He said `Har saal uski film release hoti hai` (every year his film is released on Eid). So, he requested the devotees to stop watching films on Eid.
The indication was clear- not to watch Salman`s`Kick` on Eid.
`Kick` was released on Friday, during Ramzan and has already entered the Rs 100 crore club.
The report also suggests that certain messages are being circulated on mobile phones which states that `don`t go and watch his films on Eid and he will stop releasing his films on Eid`.
When Salman Khan`s `Jai Ho` released a few months back and it didn`t do well at Box Office, there were rumours that clerics had run a campaign against Salman Khan after he was spotted with the now Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
However the clerics are smart not to indulge in politics and cited religious reasons for the same saying that Eid is a time to celebrate with family and not to flog to theatres.
