As you may know, the backdrop of the film is the Indo-China conflict, and in these stills Sohail, a soldier in the Indian army, puts up a fearless front and fights in the unsteady landscapes of Leh and Ladakh.

Tubelight is one of the most awaited films of the year and marks the third collaboration of Salman and Kabir after Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Ek Tha Tiger. Director Kabir Khan, his wife Mini Mathur and actor-producer Sohail Khan were also present at the event.

Kabir came up with a unique yet effective idea to get his cast of 600 soldiers to perform with conviction. The makers got more than 600 actors, who were to play the army personnel. If that wasn't enough, these actors had even learnt to hold their weapons and armour flawlessly. The rocky terrains combined with high altitude made it nearly impossible to shoot. However, showing unwavering determination, the cast and crew completed the shoot of the film. But going by the pattern which Kabir Khan and team has followed until now while releasing the teaser and the song of the movie, this seems to be the "shubh mahurat" for them.

The makers roped in Hollywood's legendary action director Glenn Boswell (Titanic, The Matrix, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, The Hobbit series and X-Men Origins - The Wolverine fame) for the film.

The Bollywood superstar Salman Khan's Tubelight has created quite a buzz among the audience, first with its teaser and then the fun-loving Radio Song. It is co-produced by Amar Butala and music is by Pritam. Directed by Kabir Khan, the 1962 Indo-China war drama features Salman Khan, Sohail Khan, Zhu Zhu and others. Tubelight, Salman's first film of 2017, releases on June 25 as Eid festival Special.
