Salman Khan and Kabir Khan are busy shooting for their upcoming movie Tubelight after delivering the blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan in the year 2015. Salman is shooting for Kabir’s film in the picturesque yet tough Ladakh.
The director shared a picture with Salman and other crew members after a tiring shoot schedule in Ladakh. He wrote, “Ladakh… One of the toughest schedules ever but also the most spectacular #Tubelight @BeingSalmanKhan @Zhuzhu_juju.”
Kabir and his team left for Ladakh with the crew comprising 200 people. The director, along with his cast and crew, commenced the film’s shoot on July 28. It looks like Kabir has been running through the tough shoot schedules but seems to be loving every bit of it.
The film has created immense buzz ever since it was announced and has become the topic of discussion in the tinsel town. In the film, Salman Khan will be seen playing the character of a man with special needs for the first time in his acting career.
Tubelight’s leading lady is going to be Chinese actress Zhu Zhu. She has already starred in movies such as What Women Want, Shanghai Calling, The Man with the Iron Fists and Last Flight. She was also seen in Netflix’s Marco Polo.
It is a period film with 1962’s Indo-Chinese war as the backdrop. It is essentially a love story. Salman has been cast opposite his real-life brother Sohail Khan in the film. Tubelight is scheduled to release on Eid next year.

This is the third film where Kabir and Salman are collaborating after Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Ek Tha Tiger. There is also buzz that Salman will be singing in Tubelight. He had famously rendered Hero in Sooraj Pancholi-starrer and followed it up with singing many songs in Sultan. However, his versions didn’t find a place in the film.
