Sohail Khan's Mental, starring his superstar brother Salman Khan, is being scheduled for the Republic Day weekend release.



According to a close friend of the Khan-daan, "While Salman and Sohail were initially contemplating releasing their film mid-January, they're now planning to come out with it on January 24. Previously, they were doubtful about this date as Republic Day falls on a Sunday."

Our source further added that while discussing release dates, Sohail was asked about Salman missing from this year's Eid while returning to his lucky festive slot next year with Sajid Nadiadwala's Kick.

"Sohail smiled and remarked, 'whenever Salman bhai's film releases, it's like Eid'," recalls our informer, adding that the Khans are upbeat about Salman's string of superhits.
