While not much is known about Kabir Khan’s upcoming movie ‘Tubelight’ apart from the fact that it is set during the ‘60s against the backdrop of the Indo-Chinese war; the latest buzz in B-town is that the script of the Salman Khan starrer is not exactly an original one, but takes inspiration from the 2015 Hollywood flick ‘Little Boy’!
While ‘Little Boy’ was set during World War II and was about the Pepper who was bullied by all for his small height, Khan’s ‘Tubelight’ will see the ‘Sultan’ superstar play a man who is slow learner and hence, faces bullying from all quarters.
Another similarity in the storyline is that ‘Little Boy’ is the story of Pepper’s journey to find back his lost father; while in ‘Tubelight’ we would see Salman set out on a journey to find his missing brother (played by Sohail Khan).
Apart from his innumerous films that are a copy of South Indian movies, Salman’s ‘Jai Ho’ was a copy of Hollywood film ‘Pay It Forward’, while 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo's plot was similar to that of Korean movie 'Masquerade'.
‘Tubelight’ will mark the debut Chinese actress Zhu Zhu, is the third film of Salman and Kabir together after ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’; and will hit the big screens on Eid 2017.
