The Bhaijaan of Bollywood, Salman Khan, knows no bounds when it comes to adding swagger to his characters. This is one of the reasons why some of the roles he has played are so memorable and iconic, that even those select few (a truly rare breed in India) who aren’t Salman fans still find themselves gravitating to his fabled Eid releases.

Audiences were delighted to find out that Salman’s streak of Eid releases - his own personal form of Eidi, as his fans call it - will continue after a year’s gap. The newest addition to this list of releases is Prabhudeva’s Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, premiering on ZEE5 and ZEEPlex on May 13. If you aren’t certain whether you’ll be tuning into this remake of a Korean film, here are five reasons that make Salman’s Eid releases absolute blockbusters.

1. They are action-packed

Salman has never disappointed when it comes to action-packed performances. From Bodygaurd to Ek Tha Tiger, the actor has smoothly transitioned from charming audiences with his dialogues to reeling them in with his exciting action sequences that so befit him. Radhe, where Salman plays a cop who must save the city from a rampant drug problem, is sure to make audiences cheer when their favourite actor throws punches, defeats the bad guy and all his henchmen, and ultimately saves the day.

2. They are pure entertainers

Not one moment is dull in an Eid release by Bhai. Even if the plot doesn't appeal to you, it's the charisma and personality that the actor brings to the table that makes a Salman movie an instant hit. If Dabangg is full of humour, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is a tearjerker and Tubelight is just pure fun. Overall, a Salman Eid release has never fallen short of entertaining the audience.

3. They feature soundtracks that are both, groovy and soulful

It is not uncommon to find Salman fans still humming the tunes of Tere Mast Mast Do Nain and Dil Leke. And there was a time when no Desi party was complete without having played Munni Badnaam or Aaj Ki Party. Salman’s Eid releases have featured a diverse soundtrack that appeals to the romantics and the energised dancers alike.

4. The love story is riveting

Starring some of Bollywood’s leading ladies, Salman’s movies are not devoid of love stories. The actor has been seen building connections with plenty of actresses on screen, sharing incredible chemistry that only adds to the action that his movies promise. His relationship with Anushka Sharma’s Aarfa in Sultan, his unwavering love for Sonakshi’s Rajjo in the Dabangg franchise and his budding love for a secret caller in Bodyguard all prove that no Salman Eid release is complete without a romantic plot that drives his character.

5. Salman’s presence as the lead

No reason is as important as Salman Khan playing the lead in a movie. The actor has transitioned from playing romantic leads in the beginning of his career to entertainers with action sequences for days. No matter what role the actor is set to play, he ensures that he does justice to it by bringing his own personal sense of style, his quirks and his trademark Salman bracelet.
