Since few days, the great Salman Khan has been in the news for his upcoming flick Tubelight. Now that the month of June has started, it has been declared as the Tubelight month. The movie Tubelight was once again in the headlines as Salman Khan’s brother Sohail Khan will also be seen in the movie.
Tubelight is a movie being directed by Kabir Khan. Tubelight 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 and is slotted for an Eid release. This is 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 film will see appearances by Salman’s brother Sohail Khan (who we also saw in one of the posters) and none other than Shah Rukh Khan. The superstars will be seen sharing screen space after a great amount of time. Kabir Khan spoke about SRK to a news agency recently and said, “It was a role screaming for a superstar cameo otherwise I wouldn’t have. I find it gimmicky. But when you will watch the film, you will realize the role needed a superstar. We went to him with the role and he was kind enough to agree. It is a brilliant cameo but I can’t say much about it because it will take away the joy of seeing it.”
The most amazing part is the entry of debutants in the movie that too from the Hollywood industry. Chinese actress Zhu Zhu is also part of the film. Though she appears briefly, her presence in the film is enough to generate curiosity. Salman’s bonding with child actor Matin Ray Tangu is also another reason to watch the film. Besides this, the film also stars a series of brilliant actors including Om Puri.
The movie is set to release on June 25!!
