Salman Khan's upcoming film Tubelight is in news since its inception. Reportedly, Deepika Padukone was the first choice to play the leading role in the movie, but she opted now. Later, it was said that Katrina Kaif has been finalised for the movie. But contrary to earlier reports, Katrina will not be the part of Tubelight.
Talking about Salman Khan's next Eid release, a source told India Today, ''No actor has been decided the film's makers to play the lead female character. Katrina is not in the film. There will be someone else. We have not locked the actress yet."

Tubelight is directed by Kabir Khan and it has a political backdrop. ''Needless to say my films always have a political backdrop to them because that's what excites me and I find real. So Tubelight also has a little political backdrop. 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," Kabir Khan told a news agency.
