With the clock ticking down to the release of 2017’s big Eid blockbuster, ‘Tubelight’ the makers have an added reason to celebrate. According to reports doing the rounds, the Salman Khan starrer has been awarded a ‘U’ certificate by the CBFC with a total run-time of 136 minutes (2 hours and 16 minutes). This is believed to be Salman’s shortest film thus far, with his previous films like ‘Sultan’, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ ranging between 2 hours and 45 minutes to 3 hours. The film has also been cleared with just one verbal cut.
‘Tubelight’ also stars Sohail Khan, Chinese actor Zhu Zhu and child artist Matin Rey Tangu in pivotal roles. The film is an official remake of the Hollywood film ‘Little Boy’ and will see Salman in his “best performance till date”, according to director Kabir Khan.
The film hits theatres on Friday, 23 June 2017.
Salman Khan’s forthcoming flick helmed by Kabir Khan became the talk of the town since its inception. After wooing the Indian audience over with its trailer and music videos, the makers have now taken their war-drama to an international platform. A few pictures of the film’s posters being featured on New York’s Times Square hoardings have gone viral. The film is set against the backdrop of the 1962 Sino-Indian War and also features late Bollywood legend, Om Puri. Sohail Khan and Chinese actress Zhu Zhu also play pivotal roles in the film.
Salman Khan appearing on a television promotional event, ‘Super Night with Tubelight’, to promote his upcoming movie has been the talk of the town these past days. The actor recently headed to the sets of the popular show, to record the segment and sources tell us that it was a laughter riot. Salman and brother Sohail were laughing to their heart’s content, thanks to Dr Mashoor Gulati’s (Sunil Grover) act. Dr Gulati put up an act where he operated on Salman in his unique style which left both Khan brothers in splits. Not only Sunil Grover but there was yet another talented lad Sanket Bhosle (who is known to mimic Salman and Sanjay Dutt in particular) who left Salman Khan in tears. The dynamic act by Dr Sanket Bhosle as Sanju Baba hosting ‘Dutt Ka Dum’ show made Salman Khan cry quite literally. A source tells us that the actor had to get off his seat and wipe the tears rolling down his face.
With few days left for the release of ‘Tubelight’, Salman Khan has revealed that there would be a special screening for his friend Shah Rukh Khan who has a cameo in the film.
In a recent media interaction, the ‘Sultan’ actor said, “We always have a special screening for all our movies and there would be a screening for Shah Rukh at his residence.” Salman was joined by his younger brother Sohail Khan who will be seen essaying the role of his brother in the film as well, as he marks his return on the silver screen after almost 7 years.
Helmed by Kabir Khan, ‘Tubelight’ which also stars Chinese actress Zhu Zhu and child-actor Matin Rey Tangu, is slated to release on 23 June 2017.
Salman Khan’s upcoming movie ‘Tubelight’, which is slated to release on 25 June 2017 will see the ‘Dabangg’ actor sharing screen space with his real brother Sohail Khan after 7 years.
Director Kabir Khan recently revealed to a daily that Sohail wasn’t the first choice for the role, as he intended to rope in an A-lister, one of whom was reportedly Akshay Kumar.
The report states that Akshay was allegedly among the top three names to play the role of Salman’s on-screen brother. The director was keen to cast a prominent star and “create the chemistry” on-screen. However, he ended up locking down on the real brothers as he was reportedly “convinced” by their act and felt it would be time-consuming to create the kind of camaraderie they share.
‘Tubelight’ which is an adaptation of Hollywood flick ‘Little Boy’, also stars Chinese actress Zhu Zhu and Matin Rey Tangu in pivotal roles and Shah Rukh Khan in a cameo.
In a few weeks from today, fans will finally feast their eyes on the Salman Khan film ‘Tubelight’. The actor, who has been busy promoting his film across all media platforms, recently spoke about Shah Rukh Khan’s highly anticipated cameo, apart from various other tidbits.
Admitting how happy he was to have his contemporary in the film, Salman also stated that SRK’s character brings about a “turning point” in the film.
Fans got a tiny glimpse of SRK’s character in the ‘Tubelight’ trailer which was released late last month. This film will see Salman and Shah Rukh sharing screen space after their last outing together in the 1995 film ‘Karan Arjun’.
The little kid – Matin Rey Tangu – in the teaser of ‘Tubelight’ created quite a buzz on the internet after viewers caught a glimpse of his camaraderie with Salman Khan. With interest piquing around the six-year-old’s role in the film, director Kabir Khan revealed how they zeroed in on Matin for the role. Kabir said that casting the child actor was no mean feat. He added that they didn’t set out on looking for an actor, but were seeking a wonderful child artiste who had the spunk and ability to withstand a 100-day shoot. Speaking about how many children auditioned before finalizing on Matin, Kabir said that they went through over a thousand kids before settling on him.
