Pakistani distributors refuse to release Tubelight

Salman Khan’s Tubelight will not release in Pakistan because the local filmmakers are fearing that it will pose a strong threat to their films.

According to the President of the Indian Film Exporters Association, Hirachand Dand, local distributors in Pakistan are hesitant to acquire the film, since there are two big local films scheduled for an Eid release and the makers do not want any competition, especially in the form of a Salman starrer.

“Salman has millions of fans in Pakistan and the filmmakers are in no mood to pitch their films against his. They are determined to protect the interests of their films instead.”

“The distributors are in no mood to pay the asking price for a Salman film even if it is released two weeks later since it would have released all over the world by then. The business will also have reduced by 30 percent. And these days, pirated versions of films invariably get leaked online within a week of their release,” he says, adding that a majority of Salman-starrers had released on the same day in Pakistan.

Veteran Pakistan distributor Amjad Rashi confirmed the same. “I am not the right person to comment but I doubt whether the film will get clearance considering the Indo-China war subject. Salman is no doubt a big star in Pakistan but the film could also face other hurdles as it reflects anti-China sentiments,” he said.

However, COO of Salman Khan Films- Amar Butala says, "Salman Khan Films is committed to taking Tubelight to markets across the globe with our overseas distributors Yash Raj Films. Salman has a huge following in Pakistan, which has only grown with the positive messaging on Bajrangi Bhaijaan. We hope to release Tubelight  in Pakistan as well, and our efforts continue in that direction, but we respect the law of the land and judiciary if they decide otherwise."

Salman Khan's last Eid release, Sultan remains the highest grosser in Pakistan.

  1. Salman Sikh le apne Pakistan se he kuch. Wo log apne desh ka interest pehle dekhte h. Per India ki public he pgl h jo is jaise ko star manti h jo khuleaam desh k khilaf bolta hai. War k liye to sabse jyda soldiers ki family he bolti h unke hath me bandook de ke dekh le hatth kampte h ya nai. Chuha h tu. Film me 10 logo ko mar k behario ka bewkuf bnata h or real me ek no. Ka fatttu

    1. Sahi bola mohit

  2. I don't understand why Bollywood rushes to release its movies in Pakistan. It's not even a big market. Comparatively, even Nizam/Mysore is a bigger territory than Pak in terms of returns.

  3. ????
    Maza agaya
    Now fusslight will be chasing 500cr forget bajrangi ?

    Dangal released after 5 months in china still 190M $ business.

    This is called megastardom of Aamir.

    1. 190M $ ka businees kiya dangal ne mana..mujhe acha b laga lekin bhai sun isse dangal ko kitna mila wo batana zara...google kar den ans de mere bache parshya

  4. aamir refused to release dangal it was slap on the face of pakis but here salman trying to release tubelight shame on him.

    1. hidden enemies are always dangerous.china and Sri Lanka are one of those if Aamir is truly so called Desh bhakt to wo apni movie China main release na karta agar Salman deshdrohi hai to Aamir bhi Kum Nahi hai

  5. Sallu the local flop star kabhi to eid se bahar nikal.

    coz hero toh geeta aur babita hain...

    ??? sidehero...amir the flop star

    1. Are Salman ko kiya kisine mana kiya hian acche movies banane ke kiye. Aamir lack of content movie Dhoom 3 more than Kick PRDP Aamir content movie PK much ahead of Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Kuch to sharam kar burbak.

      1. @arijit bajrangi bhaijaan is much better then PK even oh my god is also better then PK.despite clash of bahubali bajrangi bhaijaan have better footfalls then PK.agar Aamir ki movie ki ticket price itni jyada high no rehti to Aamir ki movie 200cr main finish Ho jaati.china ka Dangal ka collection to totally manipulated hai ye tujhe tax main pata chal jaayega itna less tax pay karega jaise collection 1000cr to Chodo 100cr hi earn kiya Ho Sabse bada deshdrohi

  8. What about china release?

    Poor Sallu fans.. ?
    China me screen hi nahi melegi

    Sallu the local star

  9. i would req bollywood to stop releases of their movies in pak and china.. they are nothing but nuisance to our country..
    so stop boasting about china and pak collections.. they mean absolutely zero to us..

  10. Kitna tension hai Salman ki film ko leke india me salman haters ki phati padi hai aur Pakistan me waha k producers dist ki phati padi hai.

    1. fusslght buzz low hai aue kisi ko bhi movie dekhne me intrest nahi hai flop hogi roric mera phone kharab ho gya hai isliye me whatsup use nahi kar para hu

  13. maamla thoda thanda ho gaya after @jeet shared the china collection link.. lol..
    Aamir ka fans jo aasman main udd rahe the.. boxofficeindia.com ne unhe zameen par tapka diya.. lol..
    .. best part of Salmans articles are the way his fans troll parshya.. his nonsense counters ensures phirse uska troll. .. lol

  14. if a movie like bahubali can earn 1000+crores (hope no manipulation happened) in india itself, then we need not have to depend on overseas much. all we have to do is make quality movies and rest the people will do.

  15. @Jeet lol, That opportunist BOI to sadme me h Dangal k China collection k baad. What they have said is ready knew by everyone but that won't impact the Aamir starters as he already established a market there and his last three movies D3,Pk & Dangal released there. Even srk managed HNY & Fan release there. With China following Aamir is now way ahead than any other star of India at the moment in overseas country. Dangal didn't released otherwise it could be bigger grosser than Sultan in Pak, just like PK & D3 were biggest grosser there.
    I always believe that Aamir should get success in most of overseas countries barring Pak & Gulf. It happened with Dangal and I hope same goes for TOH.

  16. Comment:@ mahaveer.....
    salman aur cheap star?...????
    clash krne ko dar rahe hai..yahan par usse....log date change kr dete hai movie ki....

    amir the content made star...???????

    1. @PJ yes, and Salman is garbage star? and Salman fans went to eat garbage in multiplex while watching his movie as they not getting them in real world? These excuse like India wins as they have better team otherwise we also have boom-2 afridi. lol.
      q Salman ki mehnat ko badnaam karte ho, itna hi superstar hota to Jai ho,Prdp 300-400cr karke baithi hoti

  17. Parshya wada kar ager tubelight 350cr kama le india me toh tu apne face par kaali lage ke ek photo upload karna.
