The release of Salman Khan’s Tubelight in Pakistan has been a matter great debate.
Some are of the opinion that it might not release in Pakistan at all while other argue that it might get a late release.
Salman Khan starrer and Kabir Khan directorial Tubelight is all set to release on Eidbut so are local films like Shan’s Yalghaar and Sohail Khan’s Shor Sharaba. In order to protect the business of these local films, directors and producers are rumored to have been trying to stall the release of Tubelight.
However in a press conference in Dubai, director Kabir Khan cleared the air regarding the release of his film in Pakistan. He said, “I don’t think one should react or respond to hearsay, we have not been told by any Pakistani producers or anyone from Pakistan about our film. Yes, I have heard there have been murmurs about our film essentially so that may be some producers feel they have a better chance at the box office without a film over there. But if they feel some of their films have to be nurtured more, we can come there later as well. At the end we feel that our film should be enjoyed and consumed by people in Pakistan because they are great fans of Salman Khan. More than the box office, we have got a lot of love from them for Bajrangi Bhaijaan. We hope to do the same with Tubelight this time.”
Tubelight officially releases on 23rd June across the globe.
