28 Apr – Ajay Devgn recently revealed that he actually contacted Salman Khan for his blessings to release his new directorial effort, "Runway 34" on Eid.
The actor, who spoke about the upcoming movie, noted that Salman is known for releasing his movies on the Muslim celebration, and said that he actually called Salman to ask him if the latter is fine with him taking over the slot.
"He was very sweet to tell me, 'Don't worry, I won't come that week. I'll come next year on Eid'," he revealed.
