The film Hum Aapke Hain Kaun has a very special place in our memories. One of the most memorable shot of the film was when Salman hit Madhuri with a slingshot in the song Didi Tera Devar Deewana. Director Kabir Khan revealed that the scene is recreated in the film Tubelight. But the only difference is that Madhuri is replaced by a six – year- old child artiste Matin Rey Tangu.
Kabir revealed: “The kid (Matin) always carries a slingshot with him. It's one of his quirks. Let's call it evolution; Madhuri has been replaced by Matin now! It was almost coincidental that such a scene be recreated in Tubelight.”

The teaser of the film Tubelight has already got a great response. Salman’s character in the film is named Laxman, who is nicknamed Tubelight, because he has a development disability. But that does not stop him from embarking on an epic quest to find his lost brother.

Tubelight also features Sohail Khan, Zhu Zhu, Om Puri and Shah Rukh Khan who will be seen in a cameo. The film is written and directed by Kabir Khan. Set in 1962 Indo-Sino war, the film was shot in the picturesque locales of Ladakh and Manali. The basic plot of Tubelight has been taken from a Hollywood film, A Little Boy (2015). Tubelight is Salman's third collaboration with Kabir Khan. Their last film, Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015) broke several records and became the highest grossing film of that year. Even their previous collaboration, Ek Tha Tiger (2012) was a huge blockbuster.
