After Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Kabir Khan and Salman Khan come together to tell another heartwarming story about the power of doing good. When asked if the makers chose China war as the backdrop instead of Pakistan to avoid controversy, Salman jokingly said, “Release ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ again.”


Khan interrupted, telling the story of ‘Tubelight’ demanded the 1962 war backdrop.

“We made ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ that had Pakistan as a backdrop, but there was no controversy around the film. That is not the reason (to avoid controversy so not included Pakistan angle in ‘Tubelight’).


“Every story requires a certain background and timeline. ‘Tubelight’ required this film to be set in 1962.

But there are other elements in the story. It’s a relevant story even in today’s time but we can’t reveal everything now.”


The ‘Sultan’ star said ‘Tubelight’ is the story of two brothers essayed by him and Sohail Khan.

“Basically, this story is about two brothers. One brother goes to war and other stays back and prays for the war to end so that his brother can come back. Now, whether his belief can actually bring back his brother or not is what the story is about,” Salman said.
