Salman Khan's 'Mental' delayed

While its become a ritual to see a Salman Khan film every year around Eid or Diwali, it has been confirmed that there will be no release from the superstar this year.

The news comes after his current film ‘Mental’ was postponed to next year around mid-January.

A source told Times Of India, “In keeping with the screenplay, it will take the Khans around 135 days to complete the shooting. There are five major action sequences including the high-octane climax, which takes place on a highway with Salman bringing all traffic to a halt. Most importantly, everything is planned bearing in mind Salman’s nerve trouble (Trigeminal Neuralgia). Sohail wants to ensure it doesn’t aggravate in any manner whatsoever.”

“January 26, 2014 is a Sunday, so there’s no advantage of releasing on the Republic Day weekend. The earlier Friday is January 17 and Makar Sankranti on January 14, a Tuesday. So they might come with Mental on Tuesday for the benefit Makar Sankranti might give them,” the source said.
