The teaser of Tubelight released on May 4 and it was an instant hit on the social media. Salman Khan’s character is portrayed as goofy and emotional similar to Bajrangi Bhaijaan’s Pawan aka Bajrangi. Tubelight is set against the backdrop of an Indo-Sino war and Salman’s brother Sohail Khan plays one of the soldiers fighting in the Indian Army.
Tubelight also stars Chinese actress Zhu Zhu and child artiste Matin Rey Tangu while Shah Rukh Khan has a cameo in the film. Of Shah Rukh’s role, Kabir told Indian Express: “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.” Tubelight will release on June 23.
After Tubelight, Salman Khan will be seen in Tiger Zinda Hai with Katrina Kaif. The Ali Abbas Zafar-directed film is a sequel to Ek Tha Tiger.
