"There is no need to do a rush job on any film. The stakes are too high, the expectations are too high. So, no need to get fixated because a Salman Khan-starrer is a Salman Khan-starrer. You may miss one day in a year, but there is at least four or five dates which are equally exciting. So you can pick and choose those dates and make that into an event, added the 45-year-old."

Mumbai, April 16 - Actor Salman Khan, who has been locking Eid for the past four years to release his films, won't have any outing this year. The superstar's younger brother Arbaaz says there are plenty of interesting dates to choose from and no need to do a rush job on Mental.

Since 2009, every year Salman had a release on Eid. It started with Wanted, followed by Dabangg in 2010, Bodyguard in 2011, and 2012 spy thriller Ek Tha Tiger. Interestingly, all of them turned out to be box office blockbusters.

This year Eid is on Aug 8 and Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar are set to lock horns at the box office as their films Chennai Express and Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again, respectively, are being readied for the festival release.

I am presuming that they - would have liked to release Mental on Eid. It's not that they have not thought about it, but the practicality of coming on Eid may have been an issue. For his - film to come on Eid, he should have started as early as January. But they started sometime in March. So it became difficult, Arbaaz told IANS.

Arbaaz, who turned to direction with Dabangg 2 that starred his brother Salman, says it is not advisable to make a film hastily.

There is no need to do a rush job on any film. The stakes are too high, the expectations are too high. So, no need to get fixated because a Salman Khan-starrer is a Salman Khan-starrer. You may miss one day in a year, but there is at least four or five dates which are equally exciting. So you can pick and choose those dates and make that into an event, added the 45-year-old.

Salman is currently shooting for Mental and the action-drama is being directed by his youngest brother Sohail.
