Though Salman’s performance in ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ was compelling, it was Munni’s role that touched our hearts a million times. And the two of them together were a treat to watch.
And now, Salman Khan will be seen with another child artist, Matin Rey Tangu, in his new movie ‘Tubelight’. The posters of the film have already hinted that in this film, too, Salman’s close bond with the child will be the essence of the story.
Also, we know that Salman is great with kids, and his adorable pictures with nephew, Aahil, say a lot about his unabashed love for children. And surprisingly, this is one of the reasons why Kabir Khan casts him in his films.
“One of the main reasons I cast Salman in this film as well as in Bajrangi was his connection with kids,” Kabir Khan told Mid-day.
The child actor in ‘Tubelight’, Matin Rey, was selected not only because of his acting talent but because he had the determination to perform for 100 days straight.
None of us was looking for an actor in a six-year-old. We wanted a wonderful child artiste who had the spunk and the ability to withstand a 100-day shoot. Making one perform is always a director’s job. Be it Matin here or Harshaali in ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ (2015), we never cast actors. They are babies, after all. We went through over a 1,000 kids before finding Matin. He had the attitude and determination to last till the end.
Watch the camaraderie between Salman aka tubelight and his dost here, and they are having one hell of a time.
It is confirmed that Shah Rukh Khan will play a cameo in this film. Whoa!
