Kabir Khan is gearing up for his next directorial venture to release worldwide. As the director of Tubelight, he has already started promoting his movie. The film stars Salman Khan in lead role. However, a big news came out a few months ago that the King of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan will play a cameo role in the movie. The news came out to be a surprise for Bollywood fans. The King and Bhai are going to reunite on the big screen after a long time and fans can’t contain their excitement.
Kabir Khan directed a short film with Shah Rukh Khan recently and shared his experience of working with him. Though, among these statements, a statement concerning the role of Shah Rukh Khan came out to be the most interesting one. Two of the biggest superstars in the history of Bollywood will reunite after 15 years. The expectations are high. The intensity is on an entirely different level. Also, talking briefly about Shah Rukh Khan’s role, Kabir Khan said:
“IT WAS A ROLE SCREAMING FOR A SUPERSTAR CAMEO OTHERWISE I WOULDN’T HAVE. I FIND IT GIMMICKY. BUT WHEN YOU WILL WATCH THE FILM, YOU WILL REALISE THE ROLE NEEDED A SUPERSTAR. WE WENT TO HIM WITH THE ROLE AND HE WAS KIND ENOUGH TO AGREE. IT IS A BRILLIANT CAMEO BUT I CAN’T SAY MUCH ABOUT IT BECAUSE IT WILL TAKE AWAY THE JOY OF SEEING IT.“
Kabir Khan heavily praised King Khan and stated how much good he was. Will we see Kabir Khan directing Shah Rukh Khan in a movie after this action? I guess it is certain. We would also love to see these two collaborate and tear apart the box office.
Tubelight also stars Sohail Khan and Zhu Zhu in lead roles. It is a historical drama film slated to release on 23 June 2017 [Eid].
