Eid and the fasting month of Ramadan over, at least 200 Salman Khan fans here organised a huge procession in the town before converging at a theatre to watch his latest Jaan-e-Mann.
â€œDuring Ramadan Muslims donâ€™t watch movies. So, more than 200 members of Salmanâ€™s fan club got together and toured the town with a band and then reached Nandan theatre to watch the film on October 26,â€ Matloof, a Meerut-based distributor, said.
The triangular love story also starring Akshay Kumar and Preity Zinta is running to packed houses in three theatres in this town. â€œThe film released before Eid, so didnâ€™t get a good response. But people have thronged theatres after Eid. Every show is packed,â€ said Matloof.
Matloofâ€™s statement also proves Salman right. The star had told a TV channel a few days ago: â€œI donâ€™t think Eid or Diwali is the right time to release a film because you want to spend time with your family during festivals. But I knew that the film will pick up after Eid.â€
