Salman Khan has decided to break his Eid release tradition with the sequel to Dabangg.

The Bollywood legend is planning to release the action thriller on December 29 this year.

A source told Hindustan Times: "He believes that the content of Dabangg 2 is even better than the original. So he will try to defy the Eid release myth."

Dabanng producer Arbaaz Khan added: "There are four to five vital release periods in a year, which are important for any big film. Since our film will be ready by the year-end, we decided on Christmas. The long weekend should be good for us."

Khan released the original film and subsequent hits Ek Tha Tiger and Ready on the bi-annual holiday.

Ek Tha Tiger director Kabir Khan described the veteran star as India's own James Bond.

In October, a source revealed that Dabangg 2 will be even more violent than the first film.
