Salman Khan's upcoming release 'Tubelight' is making to the headlines since the day it was announced. While there are several reasons to eagerly wait for the movie to hit the theatres, one of it is Shah Rukh Khan, who will be seen doing a cameo in the movie. Interestingly, it will be after a long hiatus that Salman and Shah Rukh will be sharing the screen space and while the audience is excited to watch them together, the 'Sultan' actor is also elated to have Khan with him.
While talking a web portal, Salman spoke about SRK's cameo in 'Tubelight' and stated, "I am very happy that Shah Rukh Khan worked in my film. His entry in the film is a significant turning point in this movie”.
According to the media reports, King Khan will be seen playing the role a magician in the movie.
Interestingly, director Kabir Khan has stated that there was a special reason to rope in SRK for 'Tubelight' saying the role in the movie needed a superstar.
"It was a role screaming for a superstar cameo otherwise I wouldn't have. I find it gimmicky. But when you will watch the film, you will realise the role needed a superstar. We went to him with the role and he was kind enough to agree. It is a brilliant cameo but I can't say much about it because it will take away the joy of seeing it," Kabir Khan had told a leading daily.
Also starring Sohail Khan and Chinese actress Zhu Zhu in key roles, 'Tubelight' is based on the backdrop of Indo-Sino 1962 war. The movie is slated to release on June 23 and will mark Salman Khan's gift to his fans on Eid.
