Gear up all you Salman Khan fans! After his adorable performance as the innocent Pawan Kumar Chaturvedi in Kabir Khan’s previous flick ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, the superstar will now turn into a man-child for the director’s next ‘Tubelight’!
Oh yes, Khan would be seen playing a ‘special’ role in his career which doesn’t require him to do the antics he usually does in his films to get the whistles and claps from the masses. Instead, this would be quite different from what he has done in his 28 year old career; and would be seen playing a man who is a bit slow in picking and learning things; and hence, the name ‘Tubelight’.
The film will be a cross-border love story set in the 1960’s against the backdrop of the Indo-China war and would have Khan falling for a girl from China.
While the lead actress of the film has been kept under the wraps, the team starts shooting for the film tomorrow in Ladakh!
And needless to say, another Salman and Kabir flick after ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ is enough to get us excited, and predict that this too will set the cash registers ringing at the box office.
‘Tubelight’ is scheduled to release next year on Eid.
