Here's some great news for all Salman Khan fans who have been eagerly waiting to catch the first glimpse of the much awaited Tubelight. If reports are to be believed then the trailer of the film will be released next month.
Well guys, this isn't mere rumours. Instead director Kabir Khan himself confirmed this development to DNA and was quoted as saying, "We are first going to release the teaser which will be out by the end of April and that will be followed by the trailer in May. People ask me why we are releasing the trailer so late. I'm one of those people who doesn't believe in those extended periods of marketing but only closer to the release."
When asked if in today's times, marketing and promotions is the name of the game, he disagreed, "I don't believe in going berserk with marketing. As long as you are able to get your message out and tell the people you are coming on a certain date and make people aware of that, it's more than enough. We will have a teaser and then, the trailer. I won't tell you the message now. Let people discover through the trailer what message we want to convey."
What's even more exciting is that Chinese actress Zhu Zhu who plays Salman's leading lady in the film will fly down to India to promote the film.
Kabir confirmed this development and said, "Zhu Zhu will also come down to India for a certain period of time to promote the film."
He further added, "Tubelight is based in 1962 and is set against the backdrop of the Indo-China war. It is tougher working on a period film because more attention has to be given to detail... you have to do thorough research. You have to pay attention to clothes, settings, etc. So yes, in that sense, it does definitely take more homework. But having said that, it's ultimately your storytelling, so it's exciting."
Salman's flick will be locking horns at the box office with Sunny Deol's Bhaiyyaji Superhit.
