Mumbai : Filmmaker Kabir Khan’s next Tubelight starring Salman Khan will have elements of comedy and drama with politics as its backdrop. Tubelight will mark the third collaboration between Kabir and the 50-year-old Dabangg star after blockbusters Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
In an interview kabir says, “It is about a personal issue. Can’t talk about what exactly right now. Needless to say my films always have a political backdrop to them because thats what excites me and I find real. So ‘Tubelight’ also has a little political backdrop”. The director’s love for politics was witnessed in his other ventures, including ‘Kabul Express’, ‘New York’ and ‘Phantom’. While talking about the emotional content in the upcoming film (scheduled to release on Eid next year), Kabir said, “In terms of its emotional space it is similar to Bajrangi Bhaijaan. But story is very different. It is more of humour and emotional space that we (Salman and I) haven’t delved into”.
Desimartini is excited to see what the duo has in store for audiences this time around. Meanwhile kabir said Tubelight will have a “China element in the story” but he will be shooting the film in Ladakh.
