Tubelight is Salman Khan’s upcoming big budget film which is set to have an Eid release in 2017.
Tubelight will be Salman Khan 3rd collaboration with producer-director Kabir Khan after Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Salman Khan and Kabir Khan’s last film together Bajrangi Bhaijaan was a mammoth hit and the film was lauded both commercially as well as critically. Kabir and Salman have teamed up once again for a new venture Tubelight which will be a period based film set in 1960-1962 India. Salman Khan has not done many historical films in his career and therefore Tubelight will be a unique treat for his fans.
The film revolves around the 1962 Indo-China war where Salman Khan’s character himself trapped amid the war zone. The film will have a beautiful love story entwined amid the war drama as Salman Khan will fall in love with a Chinese woman. Earlier on, Deepika Padukone was considered as the lead actress of the film but the deal did not materialize. The producers have recently finalized the lead actress opposite Salman and it is speculated that a well-known Chines actress has been roped for this role.
The team of Tubelight has already started shooting for the first schedule of the film on 8th of August in Ladhak. The unknown lead actress has begun filming and Salman Khan will join the team soon. Salman Khan’s character is speculated to be a little dim-witted and slow and therefore he is called Tubelight in the film.
