The much awaited film of 2017, Tubelight was released simultaneously during EID in India and China thanks to the popular Chinese actress Zhu Zhu playing the lead actress for Salman Khan making it the first ever Indian release in China with the worldwide release in the other regions.
After the success of Bajrangi Bhaijaan, much was expected from Salman Khan and Kabir Khan second collaboration. A remake of Hollywood film, “A Little Boy”, Tubelight disappointed big time with poor screenplay and weak direction. Thanks to the box office pull of Salman Khan, the war drama could collect Rs 119.26 crore against a budget of Rs 100 crore, making it a decent runner at the ticket window.
