This is not the first time when we are watching real life Brother’s chemistry onscreen via Tubelight as we have seen Salman Khan and Sohail Khan earlier in the films like Salaam-e-Ishq, Veer, Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya etc. But why Salman Khan chose Sohail despite the latter’s not so illustrious Bollywood career? The actor answered it himself and it is quite motivating.
In an interview with the Online Portal Salman Khan said that he wants to be comfortable with the Man who played his Brother’s role, He said, “At some point in time, these guys were looking to cast somebody bigger so that we get those numbers or crack a particular number. There were talks to rope in this big actor so that we would get this number” he continued ‘what is cracking this number Bhai? I need to be comfortable with the person who is paired alongside me and I don’t want to crack the number.”
Furter talking about the Box Office numbers, he said that he love to see his film growing and breaks all the records, but the Sultan star doesn’t want to compromise at the cost of the quality of the film. Indeed, Salman’s priority is to get into the role comfortably and for this, he doesn’t need a Big Star to help the film while performing on the Box Office. “They wanted to sell the film at a particular amount, and I said, ‘I don’t want to see the film at any number, I just want it to be a good film.’ Breaking the records of course matters to me, but not at the cost of quality of the film. A film does well if it is destined to do well,” Salman added.
However, this is not the first time when Salman Khan dragged Sohail alongside him in the film, but in the David Dhawan’s Maine Pyar Kyu Kiya, Salman suggested Sohail to play the role of his brother even though the actor wasn’t ready and rest is the history. Directed by Kabir Khan, Tubelight is all set for Eid release. It also features late actor Om Puri and Chinese actress-singer Zhu Zhu.
