Actor Salman Khan is ready for his upcoming film ‘Tubelight’, directed by Kabir Khan. The bad news regarding ‘Tubelight’ has come out today which revealed that the film will not hit the theatres in Pakistan as no local distributor is eager to release this film.
It seems that, Salman’s astonishing fame among Pakistani audiences has demonstrated to be a restraint.
As per the President of the Indian Film Exporters Association, Hirachand Dand, “Local distributors in Pakistan are uncertain to get the film since there are two big local films slated for an Eid release and the filmmakers do not want any competition, especially in the form of a Salman starrer.”
“Salman has millions of fans in Pakistan and the filmmakers are in no mood to pitch their films against his. They are determined to protect the interests of their films instead,” he added.
Later, Amar asserted, “Salman Khan Films is committed to taking Tubelight to markets across the globe with our overseas distributors Yash Raj Films. Salman has a huge following in Pakistan, which has only grown with the positive messaging on Bajrangi Bhaijaan. We hope to release Tubelight in Pakistan as well, and our efforts continue in that direction, but we respect the law of the land and judiciary if they decide otherwise.”
As per the sources, two films involving Yalghaar, Shor Sharaba are scheduled to release during Eid in Pakistan.
Film ‘Tubelight’ is scheduled to hit the theatres during Eid in India. It features Sohail Khan, Om Puri, Chinese actor Zhu Zhu in lead roles. Tubelight revolves around the story of Laxman, who is overwhelmed after his brother leaves to combat the 1962 India-China war.
