Mumbai: Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be seen celebrating Eid this year and next year, with the release of his upcoming films -- "Bajrangi Bhaijaan", starring Salman Khan, and Shah Rukh Khan's "Raees".
The Eid season has always turned out to be lucky for Salman, and this year too, he has a film releasing during that time. "Bajrangi Bhaijaan", directed by Kabir Khan, is slated to release on July 17, just two days before Eid this year.
And Shah Rukh-starrer “Raees”, helmed by Rahul Dholakia, will release around the same festival next year.
Nawazuddin is the common pivotal factor between the two films, and if the box office performance of past movie releases around the festival, is anything to go by, it will be quite a bonanza for the actor.
Salman's films "Wanted", "Dabangg" and "Ek Tha Tiger" -- all box office blockbusters -- released on Eid.
