Mental is NOT releasing on November 22nd: Sohail

Sohail KhanLast week, several news channels and websites published unconfirmed reports that Salman Khan’s upcoming film ‘Mental’ is all set to release on November 22nd.

Director Sohail Khan, though, has rubbished all rumours “We are not releasing Mental on November 22nd, we haven’t locked any release date. The shooting is currently in progress and it might be ready by the end of the year.” said Sohail.

“I dont know where the date came from. People are now deciding when I’ll release my film without my knowledge” he added.

So, as things stand today, there is an outside chance that Mental might release by the end of the year. Any further delay and the film might not see the light of day this year.

Apart from Salman Khan, Mental also stars Daisy Shah, Sana Khan, Tabu, Ashmit Patel and Mukul Dev.



  • Good. It is not best to deliberately clash and make losses.

    Remember, if a film loss, the loss is to the entire crew – and not just the lead actors.

    Hence, no actor in their sensible self would want to clash with another big movie.

    To all Salman bashers, if you feel that Salman is a coward, why didn’t your bold heroes announce a year in advance that next eid they will release their respective movie?

    They all waited for confirmation that Salman’s next could not possibly release on Eid so they can now cash in on the eid frenzy.

    Do I think your heroes are coward now?

    No, because I ain’t narrow minded like you guys. If Salman had announced his film for eid, and others had backed out, i would have appreciated that they acted sensibly. A movie is not just of one hero.

    As to holidays, please remember Ready, released on a non-holiday week.

    Also, when you are friends, it is not healthy to clash your movies. Salman is on good terms with Aamir and with Kat involved too, there is surely no chance he would want to clash.

  • @Rohit, if underperformed dabaang 2 collected 158 crores, then what do you call JTHJ which collected 120 cores only? a disaster.

  • Bro, I am Rohit, and I have already said sorry if I hurt somebody. I don’t like Salman, but he rocks at the boxoffice. I love Shahrukh, but I accept he is way behind at the moment.

  • Yes it’s not good to clash and make losses and its not good at all to be so concerned about boxoffice records. Here insecurity and cowardness comes in to play. Salman is a coward, why i will tell u. OATM 2 annouced it’s date way back, but salman who is a coward dont wont to clash coz he was worried of opning weekend record. When it comes to opening record, no one even trade wont take clashes and non holiday in to consideration, only opening records matters whether it comes from 3 national holidays or 5 open weeks. When salman movies comes no one want to clash ?, really!! but i think its otherway around, that’s the reason he ran away from OATM 2 and making a room for another film Chennai Express to battle it out.

  • @hrithik
    tell your salman to release a movie
    which is not action
    not south remake
    not cheap comedy
    and to release it in non holiday day and with competitors
    and then come to talk with us

  • Anyone can give blockbuster with cheap south remakes
    when salman will give blockbuster in meaningful or love story movie
    then talk about box office

  • @remotecontrol: There will be a day when srkians like u will say ban or stop salman from doing movies coz ur beloved srk tried everything still cant beat Salman, seems that is the only way srk can beat. First ask ur demented king srk to break Ready’s record and then u guys bark about Salman. I hope u remember Don 2, a festive solo release (Dec 23 2011) still cant beat a non holiday Ready’s record which was release in June same year. And you are asking salman do all these stuffs, Lol :D. What a pathetic sense u have, think before u submit your non sense comments.

  • i think salman doesn’t finding any holiday to relese his mental. bcoz this year in every holiday there is relesing big blockbuster film. Example- in eid there is chennai express & OUTM 2, diwali there is krrish 3, in christmas there is dhoom 3. So salman is scared that if he clashes with these films, his film Mental may not achieve enough box office success & he may lose his number 1 place.

    So as a result Mental is not relesing this year. Because he want to release his film only those holiday when his film doesn’t crash with any other film. In this way since last 3 years he is making his film blockbuster hit. I wanted to see chennai express & mental clash in this eid. But unfortunately this is not heppening.

  • @chowkosh: What about Ready? It was released on non holiday day !!! n ur srk announced CE release date a month ago unlike OUATIM 2 which was confirmed 6 months ago. Mental was delayed due to various reasons. It is actually other way Salman is not scared but people are scared to release their movies with Salman. Lol at ur thoughts !!

  • @soroop : How can salman release the movie when it is not started or completed ? What non sense, srk uses Salman n Ajay to book screens n u r saying Salman is scared. Lol. I am sure Salman will never back stab like ur srk and wud have not clash with Akki. One of the movie wud have got postponed, now even Akki is eager to thrash srk this Eid. So Ready, Steady n Loo !!! :p

  • @remotecontrol : No matter how much u bark, the bottom line is as far as audience getting Entertained he will do what he wants not what haters like u wants or hoping !!

  • 1)Wanted – Remake of telegu film starting mahesh babu , ileana !!!
    2)Ready – Remake of tamil film
    3) Dabangg – original script
    4) Bodyguard- remake of malayalam film
    5) Ek tha tiger – original script
    6)Mental – Upcoming Remake
    7) Kick – remake of telegu film kick

    Still on top the king of remake

    Salman khan -the remake khan

  • @hrithik You rock man…!
    Nice to see you defending bhai against these scavangers who now want to destroy Eid just like they ruined Diwali these past 2 years. Real shame to see Balaji releasing OUATIMA alongside Chennai Depress because it would have been interesting to see how much it would have collected and what records old Smeagol would have broken with his crapfest film. :-P
    Haters- I love y’all equally, you guys Talk BIG, I respect that, I really do. Good luck with getting a ticket to sit on board Chennai Depress sorry I meant to watch Chennai Depress. Guys I hope your journey is a safe one as you slowly slowly snail like pace ride upto Ready and with a gentle push and a Chris Gayle like Gale ride on past 123 cr mark. All the best you Smeagolites /Srkians and may you all have a Depressing Diwali sorry this years its gonna be an Evil Eid with your Gollum creature at the steering wheel orchestrating your festivities. :-P
    PS bhai fanatics- no bhai film this Eid so lets take a trip down memory lane where “Once Upon A Time In Mumbai 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012” Salman Bhai brought joy on Eid…! ;-) Akki roxXxXxXx

  • Excuses are made by cowards or losers.

    When you can’t beat him, point out silly things like it is a remake, nothing original, court cases..blah blah…

    The only thing that matters is box office.

    AND THE FACT IS THAT SRK IS UNABLE TO BEAT Salman’s READY movie record….how bad is that, now ask yourselves.

    The global star, the start with millions of followers and yet cannot beat the record of Ready. PITY.

    Now, when we are talking of box office, let us only speak of that.

    The whole world knows how was RA.1 made, and how many movies it got inspiration (copy).

    There is nothing ORIGINAL in a romantic movie. Same old thing in a new bottle.

    So, let us not discuss that and discuss what SRK has achieved in the recent years with his movies compared to Salman?

    The answer is srk’s movies have struggled and Salman is setting record pe record.

    So, all srkians, instead of pointing fingers on successful people, go out and watch your star’s movie and try to make it a hit.

    As Navin said, it is a pity that OUATIMA is clashing with CE, otherwise the world would have known how much CE would have accomplished on its own.

    Now, if it fails, they will put the blame on OUATIMA that people were divided for choices, but the reality is that if i am a srk fan, i will only see his movie, no matter what other movie released. If your star is a global star, why is the movie not fetching or making global records?

    Sit for a while a think, srkians, and try to get some logic in your mind.

    It is good to be loyal to your favourite star, but not blind.
