Everyone had got a glimpse of Shah Rukh Khan (see pic below) via a still of his back in the first official trailer of Salman Khan’s ‘Tubelight’. It was well known already that Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in a cameo in the movie, and the trailer had got SRK and Salman fans excited. But here’s what happened after that.
Last night, a Twitter handle ‘@yesIamSRK’ with the name ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ leaked a couple of photos of Shah Rukh Khan’s special appearance in Tubelight. In what seems like photos captured from the theatre screen itself, the two Khans can be seen together.
While Salman Khan plays Laxman, a vulnerable boy, grieving the loss of his brother Bharat (played by Sohail Khan), Shah Rukh Khan plays a magician who makes Laxman realise the supernatural powers he has been blessed with and doesn’t know about it unless SRK makes him understand.
This role as the magician is reportedly one of the turning points of Tubelight. But of course, how Shah Rukh Khan looks like and how both the Khans look like while sharing screen space was also another highlights of the film. And the suspense factor of this moment has been compromised by this Twitter handle. Sad but true.
Though we strongly feel that this will not deter the audience from flocking the theatres and watching the film. Remember how ‘Sultan’ was leaked a day ahead of its release, and yet the film broke multiple records at the Box Office and went on to become one of the highest grossers of the year? Hence, we know that such spoilers will do no harm to the film’s business.
Below is the Twitter handle that played the spoiler part one day ahead of the film’s release.
