Filmmaker Kabir Khan, who launched the teaser of his upcoming film Tubelight yesterday, gave a sneak peek into it with to lead actor Salman Khan’s fans. He said Salman plays a “different and challenging kind of role” in the movie, the story of which is based on the Hollywood film Little Boy. “Salman has just pushed the boundaries in terms of craft and acting in this film,” Kabir said. The actor’s brother Sohail is also seen with Salman in posters and also in the teaser. Kabir revealed that Sohail is doing an important role in Tubelight.
Talking about the chemistry of both the brothers, Kabir said: “They both are brothers and obviously they love each other a lot, so it was easy for me. As a director, if I have to establish that there is love between two brothers, then I get to see that very easily between Sohail and Salman because of their body language and their reactions with each other. I really enjoyed working with both of them.”Tubelight will release worldwide on June 23.
Talking about the current Box Office stunner Baahubali 2, Kabir is delighted with the phenomenon that “Baahubali” has emerged to be. He says the film must not be looked at as a regional project.“I really feel good whenever any film does well. We should not see ‘Baahubali’ as a regional film. That’s the triumph of ‘Baahubali’… The team has successfully combined south and north market, and for that, hats off to S.S. Rajamouli. I think he made a brilliant effort,” Kabir said here on Thursday.
