Actor Imran Khan, who plays a prominent role in Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai 2 - reportedly set for a release on Eid, says no one can overtake Salman Khan's territory of Eid release.

Ever since Salman's Wanted was released on Eid in 2008, it has been almost a tradition for the actor to have a release around that time every year. When asked if he is looking to overtake the territory of Salman by releasing the film during Eid, Imran says, "Who will overtake Salman Khan? Nobody is super enough to do that."

Ever since Salman's Wanted was released on Eid in 2008, the actor has been releasing his films on Eid.

Last year, Salman's film Ek Tha Tiger hit the theatres during Eid. But this year reportedly with no film of Salman releasing around the festival, two films - Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai 2 and Chennai Express - are likely to be released that day.

This year, two of Salman's films, Mental (directed by brother Sohail) and Kick (directed by Sajid Nadiadwala) have been announced. Reportedly, both the films are likely to release next year.

Chennai Express is romance comedy directed by Rohit Shetty, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone.

Milan Luthria's Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2 is a gangster-romantic thriller with Akshay Kumar in the lead role.

Imran, who will also be seen in Karan Johar's home production Gori Tere Pyaar Mein opposite Kareena Kapoor, says the shooting of the film is in progress.
