Kabir Khan on Salman Khan’s Tubelight: Salim Khan gave me a big tight hug after watching the first cut
Kabir Khan’s upcoming directorial Tubelight is gearing up for its release. The first teaser of the movie comes out by the month end, followed by the trailer in May. Kabir is leaving no stone unturned in the post production of the movie.
Recently, the acclaimed director showed his film to Salman Khan’s father Salim Khan, whose opinion matters a lot to Khan. After watching the film, Salim Khan’s reaction made Kabir’s day. “I showed him the first cut. He came out of the edit room and without saying a word, gave me a big, tight hug. Need I say more?,” reveals Kabir to a daily.
Interestingly, not just Kabir but even Salman Khan makes it a point to take a feedback from his writer father. Salman feels that his father’s feedback always mirrors audience’s reaction.
Salim Khan inputs had worked out for Bajrangi Bhaijaan very well. Salim Khan had suggested to not include Aaj ki Party song in the end credits of the movie, as it would kill the impact of the film. Says Salim Khan to the daily, “I told Kabir to not put the song at the end of Bajrangi Bhaijaan because it was diluting the impact of the film.”
When asked Salim Khan as to how he finds Salman’s latest film Tubelight, he replied, “It’s a beautiful film. Kabir has made it well.”
Kabir Khan, on the other hand, feels that Salim Khan has been a huge support and has been thankful to him. Reveals Kabir, “I always make it a point to narrate the script to him before I start filming. How many people have the privilege of getting a living legend to doctor their script? He has always come up with invaluable inputs for me. For Tubelight, too, he gave me a few pointers that made the screenplay better.”
In fact, not many know but the catch line in the poster of Tubelight – Kya Tumhe Yakeen Hai is actually Salim Khan’s brainchild. However, the veteran writer doesn’t want to take credit for it. Says Khan modestly, “We were all discussing it and it is always a team effort.”
Well, we absolutely cannot wait for the release of Tubelight. How about you?!
