Salman Khan's 'Tubelight' has been the superstar's Eid gift for his fans and indeed a much awaited release of the year. However, the box office performance of the movie turned out to be a real surprise for everyone as this Kabir Khan directorial failed to garner the expected response. As per the reports Salman Khan has decided to refund distributors to compensate for losses incurred by his Eid release. In a tweet on Monday, trade analyst Komal Nahta wrote: "Salman Khan has agreed to refund money to distributors to make up for losses in Tubelight. A lovely gesture. That's being human."
In spite of having an Eid release, ‘Tubelight’ failed to impress the fans and critics alike. Adding up to the disappointment reports suggest that, when a few of Bhai’s fans went to the theatres in Brussels, Belgium, they were shocked to see the movie being marketed with the tag-name of Shah Rukh Khan who only played a cameo in the movie.
Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan's relationship has always been a centre of attraction for the media and the craze to watch them together on the silver screen never fades away. As the biggest and brightest stars in the industry descended at selected multiplexes to catch a special screening of Salman Khan’s ‘Tubelight’, Shah Rukh Khan too along with daughter Suhana headed for the screening.
According to the reports, Sohail Khan wasn't Kabir Khan's first choice for the role of Salman Khan's brother in movie, as he intended to rope in an A-lister, one of whom was reportedly Akshay Kumar.
The little child actor, Matin Rey Tangu was chosen from over 1000 kids for Salman Khan’s ‘Tubelight’. Kabir Khan reportedly said that they didn’t set out on looking for an actor, but were seeking a wonderful child artiste who had the spunk and ability to withstand a 100-day shoot.
