‘Tubelight’ Trailer: Salman Khan To Illuminate Bollywood Summer
While Tollywood smash Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is in the midst of its record-shattering rampage at global turnstiles, Bollywood is gearing up for the release of megastar Salman Khan’s next blockbuster, Tubelight. Check out the trailer above.
Social media has been counting down the days to this evening’s debut of the first look at the historical war drama with a heart. Particularly notable is that this initial trailer comes replete with English-language subtitles — the wait for a translated version is usually a bit longer. Tubelight also sports another significance: It co-stars Chinese actress Zhu Zhu and is expected to have a wide release in the Middle Kingdom.
Set during the 1962 Sino-Indian War, Tubelight sees Khan as a man from India who falls in love with a woman from China. What’s more, there’s another Khan here: Shah Rukh Khan has a cameo.
Director Kabir Khan has told local media that Salman is expected to tour key Chinese cities to promote the film. The two Khans are reuniting after mega-hits Ek Tha Tiger (2012) and Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015). They also produce Tubelight.
Salman last year had the No. 2-grossing Bollywood movie with Sultan and the top two grossers in 2015 with Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. He has become synonymous with the summer Eid holiday, reserving calendar space that has led to such mega-hits as Bajrangi, Kick (2014) and Ek Tha Tiger. Tubelight begins its release in the same frame this year, on June 25.
In the spirit of shared good will, Bollywood producer Karan Johar shared his congratulations on the trailer:

The wait is finally over. Mark you calendars as in the next five days you will finally get to see what you’ve been waiting for – the teaser of Salman Khan’s much-awaited film, Tubelight. After a lot of speculations, finally the release date of its teaser was announced on Saturday. And it was done by none other than the Bhaijaan of Bollywood – Salman Khan. The actor took upon himself the responsibility of killing the curiosity of his fans who have been eagerly waiting to see more of the superstar in his new avatar.
Taking to Twitter, Salman posted a new poster of the film in which he is seen sitting in a train and waving, but the actor made it clear that he is not going anywhere, rather he is coming to meet his fans soon. “Kahin jaa nahi raha hoon, aap ke paas aa raha hoon. Bus 5 din mein! #5DaysForTubelightTeaser,” wrote Salman along with the poster.
Earlier, director Kabir Khan, who is teaming up with Salman for a third time after Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan, teased the fans with a short video of his film and said that the teaser will be out by April end. But looks like the makers decided to push the teaser release for a few days, to avoid its charm being subdued by the existing craze of Baahubali 2. The trailer of Salman Khan film will come in May.
Tubelight which has Indo-China war as its backdrop is scheduled for an Eid release. Until now the makers have given enough reasons to the movie buffs to keep them excited and hanging around for the day when this Salman Khan film will finally hit the theatres. Now that the release date of the teaser has been announced, we wonder whether we will get to see a glimpse of Shah Rukh Khan who plays a cameo in the film or will it just be about Salman Khan. Watch this space for more.
