Advance booking for Salman Khan’s most awaited movie has started. Eid is synonymous with a lot of family time, yummy food and warmth all around. But for the last few years, it has also become synonymous with a Salman Khan movie release. Bhai’s Eid offering for the year, Tubelight, directed by Kabir Khan, is all set for release this Friday on 23rd June and advance booking for the film has commenced in all big cities including Delhi NCR, Mumbai. Hyderabad and Bengaluru.
The expectations from Salman Khan films are massive and this one is no exception. Especially, with Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’s and Aamir Khan starrer Dangal’s phenomenal run at the box office worldwide, Trade pundits in the film industry are keen to see whether Tubelight, riding high on the Salman Khan mania, can beat the box office collections of these two massive earners. The actor on the other hand, is leaving no stone unturned in the promotion of the film, which is a Salman Khan home production.
One added advantage that Tubelight has, is the fact that it is a solo hindi film release, because not many actors in Bollywood choose to compete with the superstar especially when it is an Eid release. So, Tubelight, with its 3000 plus screens release in the country, has all the potential to rake in the big moolah with opening day and opening weekend collection records waiting to be broken.
Tubelight is the emotional tale of Laxman (Salman Khan), a childlike simpleton who shares a close bond with his brother Bharat, who is in the Indian Army and goes missing during the 1962 Sino- Indian war. The film takes us along on Laxman’s journey to bring his brother back with his unshakeable faith. Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in a cameo appearance in the film and this has garnered a lot of interest from the audience too.
With the advance bookings now open, you can book your tickets for 2017’s Eid extravaganza.
