Tubelight director Kabir Khan shared a picture of himself with Shah Rukh Khan from the sets of his film starring Salman Khan.
Alright, so the verdict is out. Shah Rukh Khan is indeed starring in a cameo in Salman Khan’s upcoming film Tubelight.
The news spread that King Khan would act in Salman bhai’s film when trade analyst Komal Nahta tweeted that Shah Rukh would feature in a small cameo in Tubelight.
However, when Nahta deleted that tweet, ‘news’ became rumours.
Following this, on being asked about the same, Shah Rukh Khan gave a vague answer to Hindustan Times, “Salman and I were planning to do something together on the business front. But then he sent me a message saying, ‘Nahin karte hain yaar. Phir se log kahenge ki hamara jhagda ho gaya.‘ (Let’s not do this. People will say we started fighting again.)”
Following this, a report in Bollywoodlife.com said that Shah Rukh Khan is playing a magician in Tubelight. In fact, the tattoo that Shah Rukh was seen sporting in recent pictures was for the role he would play in Salman’s film.
Now, director Kabir Khan himself has taken to Instagram to upload a picture of himself with Shah Rukh Khan in his tattooed-face avatar…and yes, he confirms that Shah Rukh is acting in a cameo.
Set in the backdrop of the 1962 Sino-Indian war, Tubelight is the story of a mentally challenged man who crosses the border to reach China, looking for his lost brother, and there he falls in love with a Chinese girl.
Starring Salman Khan, Sohail Khan, Paras Arora and Chinese actor Zhu Zhu, Tubelight is scheduled to release in theatres on Eid, this year.
