A Salman Khan starrer is always a highly anticipated film and “Tubelight” is no exception. The film has created quite a buzz ever since it was announced by its director, Kabir Khan. It is a war drama based on the Sino-Indian war of 1962 and has been shot in exotic locations in Ladakh, Manali and surrounding mountain areas. Tubelight marks the debut of Chinese star Zhu Zhu.
The second poster of the movie was released today and it features a childlike Salman Khan saluting, with shoes dangling from his neck and also has a backdrop of a war scene. Have a look here :

The movie has begun raking in the moolah even before its release and is already proving to be a profitable venture for its makers. Apparently, the music rights of the film have been acquired by Sony Music for a whooping 20 crores, even though the makers have not confirmed the amount yet. Add to this the distribution rights of 132 crores, the highest for a Bollywood movie until now. Interestingly, the movie has only 3 songs which are situational in nature, very rare for a Salman Khan film to not be mainstream music centric.
This will be Salman Khan’s third outing with Kabir Khan, the first two being Ek Tha Tiger followed by Bajrangi Bhaijaan which were both humungous blockbusters. So needless to say, the expectations from this one are sky-high. The director confirmed that the movie is on the editing table at the moment and the trailer will be out shortly.
Salman Khan is currently working on his next which is Ali Abbas Zafar’s Tiger Zinda Hai, the shoot for which is underway. The film stars Katrina Kaif opposite him.
Tubelight is set to hit theatres on Eid this year.
