The long wait to watch the trailer of the Salman Khan starrer Tubelight ended last night after much of a tease. While, the trailer managed to impress the audience with its enchanting storyline, We couldn’t help but notice a ‘blink-and-miss’ appearance by Shah Rukh Khan (just a silhouette) in his signature pose with his arms spread out. Did you manage to spot that? Ever since, the director of Tubelight Kabir Khan revealed that SRK will appear in the film in a special cameo appearance, it was assumed that the audience would have to wait till the film releases in cinema screens next month. But to everyone’s surprise, the makers gave us a sneak peak into the cameo in the trailer itself.
The superstars SRK and Salman will be seen sharing screen space in Tubelight 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 realise 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.”
There have been reports of SRK playing a magician in the film. Well, guess we’ll have to wait to know more. The trailer of the film gives us a glimpse into the emotional journey of Laxman, 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 on account of his faith and belief (yakeen as they call it.)
Tubelight also stars Chinese actor Zhu Zhu, Om Puri and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub is scheduled to release on June 23 this year.
