Topping the list of the most eagerly awaited films of this year is the ace filmmaker Kabir Khan’s Tubelight. If the buzz that the film has created everywhere is anything to go by, then, it won’t be surprising to see Tubelight setting the Box-Office afire.
Today, the makers of Tubelight are getting geared up to launch the much-awaited trailer of the film. And since Tubelight has been set amidst the backdrop of the Indo-China battle, as many as 600 actors were cast to play army personnel, including the character played by Sohail Khan. In tune with the same, the film’s director Kabir Khan came up with a uniquely crafted idea of casting the group of 600 soldiers to perform with utmost conviction. As a step forward in that direction, the soft-spoken Kabir Khan requested the Indian Army to train his actors for Tubelight. Needless to say that, the Indian Army personnel’s were more than happy and agreed to take the actors under their shelter for a couple of weeks.
As a part of the training, they had even organised a boot camp for the actors and started training them rigorously in order to make them look like real life soldiers. Within few days itself, all the actors had a complete makeover and had developed a convincing body language and looks of a soldier. If that wasn’t enough, these actors had even learnt to hold their weapons and armour flawlessly.
Besides Salman Khan, Tubelight also stars Sohail Khan and the famous Chinese actress Zhu Zhu. This Kabir Khan directed film is slated to release on June 25 this year.
