The teaser of Salman Khan’s ‘Tubelight’ has not only moved us but has also got our interest piqued. Salman Khan will be seen playing the part of a man with special needs, someone whose mind is far too young for his age. While the teaser has all the makings of a blockbuster, what we all might have skipped is that at the end, the makers have credited the Hollywood film, ‘Little Boy’ as an inspiration for the movie.
Released in the year 2015, ‘Little Boy’ is the story of a little kid, who like Salman’s character in ‘Tubelight’ has special needs. In the film, like Salman’s brother, who goes to fight the Indo-Sino war of 1962, the little kid’s father goes to fight the World War II. In the end, both the films are stories of keeping the faith and how faith can help you move mountains.
Helmed by Kabir Khan, ‘Tubelight’ will mark the third collaboration between the hit actor-director pair of Salman Khan and Kabir Khan. Starring Salman Khan, Sohail Khan, Zhu Zhu and late Om Puri in pivotal roles, ‘Tubelight’ is all set to release on June 23 in India and June 25 in China.
