Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan will play a cameo in Salman Khan's Tubelight. Both actors will share screen space after 15 years.
Talking about it in an interview, Kabir said that the particular character in Tubelight demanded 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.”
This is the first time Kabir collaborated with Shah Rukh on a film. The duo have begun filming a short movie for Dubai Tourism. When asked about a possibility of a full-fledged collaboration with Shah Rukh, Kabir said, “I would love to work with him. I have known him since college days in Delhi. We shot for an advertisement recently and we do speak about ideas. So, if there comes an idea, we both agree upon, I am sure we will collaborate.”
Tubelight is a period drama and also stars Sohail Khan and Chinese actor Zhu Zhu. The film will release during Eid this year.
