I’m looking forward to seeing Salman Khan in ‘Tubelight’ because it is a role that I think suits him. In the movie, he plays a “simple” man…and by “simple” they mean slow-witted and rather dumb. How this simpleton ends up involved in the 1969 Indo-Sino war remains to be seen.
After facing delays, the film unit decided to shoot some of the scenes in Manali. Now, Himachal Pradesh may not have civil unrest but it does have weather problems. As per the director, Kabir Khan, their set was constructed at a height of 12,000 ft, where the unit faces the problem of bad light conditions. This is obviously delaying the shooting schedule.
However, a source has rushed in to clear the air. The first half of the movie focuses on Salman’s relationship with Sohail Khan; it is only in the second half that the love interest catches on. The scenes being shot in Manali belong to the first half.
