We have some fresh scoop about the movie
The Salman Khan movie that everyone is currently focused on is Sultan. The Ali Abbas Zafar Film is releasing in a week’s time and the excitement is high all around the country to catch the sports oriented film. But another film of Salman’s that has everyone’s fancy is Tubelight. The film was supposed to be an Indo-China war film with a lot of political undertones. It was also rumoured that Sohail Khan will also play a crucial role in the film and that the heroine will a Chinese actress. Let us see if all these speculations are true.
Kabir Khan’s Tubelight, starring Salman and Sohail Khan, goes on floors this July. The film, set in the 1960s, will first camp at Ladakh, later moving on to Kashmir. An insider shared more details…
“The film is based at the backdrop of the Sino-Indian war of 1962, where a disputed Himalayan border served as the main pretext for the war,” our source reveals. Our khabroo quickly adds, “It isn’t a political saga. It’s more a human drama.”
Speculation was rife that Sohail plays a mute character in Tubelight. But our source contradicts this. “Sohail and Salman play brothers in the film, but Sohail is not playing a mute guy at all.”
WE HAVE A HEROINE!
There were also stories about Tubelight being a no-heroine film and just revolving around Sohail and Salman’s characters. But that’s untrue. “The heroine’s role isn’t that meaty, but there will be a leading lady in the film whose role will be impactful.” Has Kabir finalised the actress? “He’s in talks with someone and mostly it will work out. It’s an offbeat casting, something that people won’t predict. They will announce the heroine much later because the first schedule won’t require her anyway.”
SALMAN WANTS, SALMAN GETS!
Salman loved the way Kabir shot virgin locations in Kashmir in Bajrangi Bhaijaan. He’s already given his director a strict diktat: “Salman wants to explore the unexplored locations of Ladakh and Kashmir and for the film, he’s asked Kabir to scout for such places to shoot.”
