Salman Khan’s ‘Tubelight’ might not release on Eid in Pakistan

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s much awaited film ‘Tubelight’ might not hit the screens on Eid in Pakistan as some local filmmakers have started a movement to stall the release of the film.

The filmmakers along with the Film Distributors Association and the Film Producers Association want to ensure better business for Pakistani films during the Eid holidays.

The distributors, producers and filmmakers say they want to protect the interest of Pakistani movies as two big films, ‘Yalghaar’ and ‘Shor Sharaba’, along with others in the pipeline, are slated for an Eid release.

“If ‘Tubelight’ also releases on Eid, it will certainly hit the business of these Pakistani films and that will not help our industry,” actor Mustafa Qureshi said.

Those trying to stall the release of the Salman Khan – starrer are citing a law passed by the Federal Ministry of Information in 2010 which forbids the release of any Indian film on a Muslim holiday.

“If required we can even go to the court,” producer Altaf Hussain said.

Sohail Khan, the producer of ‘Shor Sharaba’, said, “My film is supposed to release on Eid-ul-Fitr and if the government doesn’t stall ‘Tubelight’, I will not release it as a mark of protest.”

Hussain said the associations are planning to send an official letter to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif as well.

He confirmed a meeting was held in Lahore at which it was decided that the entire Pakistani film industry will join the planned protest to stop the release of ‘Tubelight’ on Eid.

“It has been decided that all those related to the Pakistani film industry will support the Pakistani films that are supposed to release on Eid-ul-Fitr,” Hussain added.

Chaudhry Ejaz Kamran, the chairman of the Pakistan Film Distributors Association has also supported the move.

“It is not fair asking our films to compete with big Bollywood projects on Eid and it is cruel to our industry”, he said.

As per the sources, the Ministry had given directives to stop the release of ‘Tubelight’ and Vidya Balan’s ‘Begum Jaan’ well in advance.

3 reasons why Salman Khan’s Tubelight reminds us of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump

Tom Hanks, Salman Khan

Tom Hanks, Salman Khan

Salman Khan’s upcoming Eid release, Tubelight has blockbuster written all over it. The film is in news for various reasons. One of the biggest reasons being that it marks the reunion of Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan on the big screen. Also it will be one of the few times when Salman Khan won’t be playing a larger-than-life character. Instead he’ll be seen playing a simpleton in the film. As soon as we saw the poster we couldn’t help but draw similarities with Forrest Gump. For some reason Salman Khan’s Tubelight sounds a lot like Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump. So here are three similarities we found in the two adorable characters:

The Slow Learner

Forrest Gump is a slow-witted but kind-hearted, good-natured man child. So is Salman Khan in Tubelight. He is even called Tubelight by people around him for his slow-witted ability.

The Appearance

Even though Tubelight is seen wearing simple clothes like shirts and sweaters and Forrest Gump wore shirts and blazers, they still have similar nuances and the mere fact that the two still look uncannily similar in their appearance speaks volumes about why we are comparing the two. I mean even their hairstyles are similar!

The Army Background

While Forrest Gump joins army, Tubelight is in search of his brother who is in Indian army and while we are not much aware of the plot of the Salman Khan starrer, there is a possibility he might join Army in the film.

Overall, we think just like Forrest Gump, Tubelight is gonna be film with big heart. And while it’ll be a blockbuster, no points in guessing that, it will also be a critical hit.

Let us know what you guys think of the film and our analogies in the comments section below…

Tubelight new poster: Salman Khan’s innocent yet mischievous avatar will make you excited for the movie

Salman Khan

Salman Khan

The first poster of Salman Khan‘s Tubelight was released yesterday and we have to say it was one of his best posters yet! Though the makers just showed us his back, we could make out that we are going to see Salman in a never seen before avatar. Now the team has released a new poster of Tubelight and this time they finally showed us Salman’s face. And we surely CAN’T KEEP CALM! The actor looks fantastic and really innocent in this latest promotional piece. In fact, his innocent yet mischievous avatar makes us even more excited for the movie…

Wearing a blue and white checkered shirt with a brown, rustic sweater on top of it, Salman is seen striking a salute in the picture. We even see him carrying two boots on his shoulders. However, it is his cute yet mischievous look that stole our hearts. But wait, there’s more to the poster. In the bottom half, we get a glimpse of the war sequences too. And if it is anything to go by, then we can say it is going to be a really eye-catching movie. In fact, if you look closer, you will even spot Sohail Khan in the middle of the war, carrying a missile launcher of some sorts. The tag line – “Kya tumhe yakeen hai?” is also repeated in this poster, making us wonder what exactly is the secret behind it. However, one thing that stood out was the mention of Salman’s mother on the poster. Yes, Salma Khan’s name has been added to it as a co-producer of the film. Ain’t that a sweet gesture?

For those of you who don’t know, Tubelight is based on the Indo-China war of 1962 and we will see Salman in a never seen before avatar. He will play a guy, who is very slow to learn and hence he is called Tubelight. Directed by Kabir Khan, the film is made on a very sensitive note with the director making sure to hurt nobody’s sentiments. The story is about two brother – Salman-Sohail (Khan) and their love for each other. Chinese actress Zhu Zhu is also a part of the movie and we can’t wait till Eid to see this film. Anyway, check out the new poster above and tell us what you think about it in the comments section below!

Tubelight first poster out! Salman Khan’s this avatar will make his fans curious

Salman Khan

Salman Khan

Salman Khan‘s Tubelight is one of the most awaited films of the year and when the teaser logo of the film was released yesterday, his fans were surprised. The makers have now come up with the first poster of Tubelight and we have to say that Salman Khan’s this avatar will surely leave you stunned. Yes, while the poster does not show his face, we can say that you will have never seen the superstar in such an avatar.

salman-khan-tubelight-first-poster

In the poster, we see the actor standing with his back towards us, wearing a rugged coat. The rising sun makes the view even better. But it us Salman‘s subdued avatar that will surprise you. We all know the star is a slow-learner in the film, so his this look does justify his part. The tagline – “Kya tumhe yakeen hai?” will also make you question yourself whether you can believe seeing him in such an avatar? Anyway, what do you guys have to say about it? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!

Salman’s last outing was also a huge surprise for his fans. The actor had donned a wrestler avatar for Ali Abbas Zafar’s Sultan. When SK decided to ditch his six packs and flaunted his flab for a crucial scene in Sultan he managed to impress not just his fans, but also the critics. Looks like the Dabangg star is now ready to try out some experimental massy films. And if the Tubelight first poster is anything to go by, then the actor might just have some more tricks up his sleeve. Salman was known to play the stud who beats the goon in most of his hit Rs 100 crore films, be it Dabangg, Ready, Bodyguard or Ek Tha Tiger. However, with films like Sultan and Bajrangi Bhaijaan the actor has managed to add variety to his filmography.

Khan reunites with Kabir Khan for Tubelight after doling out two hits – Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Ek Tha Tiger. Also starring Sohail Khan and Zhu Zhu (Chinese supermodel), the film is all set to hit the theatres on Eid this year and we bet that the Khan duo will strike a hattrick with Tubelight.

Here’s Why Arpita Khan Is Upset With Brother Salman Khan

Arpita Khan, Ayush Sharma and Salman Khan

Salman Khan‘s is the undisputed “Bhai” of the film industry, mostly for his generous nature. He has launched one too many actors in the film industry – no wonder his sister Arpita Khan Sharma also looked towards him for help.
It has been reported that Salman was supposed to launch Arpita’s husband Ayush Sharma, but he got quite busy with his work commitments and was unable to do it. Therefore, Arpita is miffed with her brother for not keeping his promise.
Apparently, Salman had spoken to some filmmaker, but later thought to give him a break through his own production house (Salman Khan Films). However, nothing has worked out so far!

Salman Khan and Karisma Kapoor made for a wonderful jodi back in the 90’s (and they remain a favourite). I absolutely loved them in Judwaa, Biwi no. 1, Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge etc – so you can imagine that I was overjoyed to hear that the two are coming back together!

According to a report in MumbaiMirror, filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala has confirmed that the famous jodi will make a special appearance in Judwaa 2. Sajid reportedly said that Sallu and Lolo were interested to be a part of the film and they will be doing a cameo in the sequel.

I am SO excited!

Here’s Why Papa Salim Khan Doesn’t Wish To Write Films For Salman Khan

Salim Khan and Salman Khan

Salim Khan and Salman Khan

Salim Khan is a well known name in the film industry, known for his stupendous work as a screenwriter in films like Haathi Mere Saathi, Seeta Aur Geeta, Sholay, Mr India and many others. Then why hasn’t he penned down any films lately for his superstar son Salman Khan?

The veteran actor faced this question when he recently appeared on Zee Classic’s My Life My Story. According to a report in News18, he answered:

It’s not that I haven’t written films for Salman. I had written a film for him – Patthar Ke Phool which did reasonably well too. Even today, when I pitch a script, people always have a question that “if it is good then why is Salman not acting”? But I wanted to get out of that vicious circle. Another thing is if a movie fails, it is my fault. If it is a hit, it is Salman’s efforts!”

Fair enough!
