Tubelight starring Salman Khan was one of the most awaited movies of 2017, directed by Kabir Khan. After the great success of the duo’s film ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ in 2015, the expectation of audience has arisen from the ‘Tubelight.’
The film hit the screens on June 23. But it was not up to that expectation. So, it fails to amaze the critics and audience.
‘Tubelight’ is one of the major disappointments of 2017 regarding its business in theaters. The director Kabir Khan was unsatisfied with the response. The distributors of the films face enormous loss with this movie.
The movie is an entertaining family drama set in a small town in the hills of northern India. In its 3rd week, it collected merely 1.25 crore. But currently, stands with a global total of 121.25 crores at the box-office. The releasing of ‘Jagga Jasoos’ starring Ranbir Kapoor this weekend had directly affected Tubelight.
Kabir Khan’s directed ‘Tubelight’ depicts the backdrop of the 1962 Indo-China War. The concept of the movie is taken from American film ‘Little Boy.’ The film was believed to have a big release in China also. But there has been no confirmation about the same.
Bollywood star’s ‘Tubelight’ also features Sohail Khan. Salman Khan Films’ banner produced this movie.
Salman Khan next movie Ali Abbas Zafar’s ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ opposite Katrina Kaif. This film is a sequel to his 2012 ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and set to be releasing this year on 22nd December.
