Kabir Khan gets the Indian Army to train 600 actors for Tubelight!
The makers of Salmna Khan starrer Tubelight have already launched the trailer of the film. Since the film has the Indo-China conflict as its backdrop, more than 600 actors were cast to play army personnel. Sohail Khan’s character too, is that of an army officer.
Director Kabir Khan came up with a unique yet effective idea to get his cast of 600 soldiers to perform with conviction. When he asked the Indian army to train these actors for Tubelight, they happily agreed and took the actors under their shelter for a couple of weeks.
They organised a boot camp for the actors and trained them rigorously to make them look like real life soldiers. The actors had a complete transformation and showcased the body language of a soldier that looks completely convincing. They even learnt to hold their weapons and armour perfectly.
Tubelight is produced by Salma Khan & Salman Khan and directed by Kabir Khan. It stars Salman Khan, Sohail Khan and Zhu Zhu. It is co-produced by Amar Butala and music is by Pritam. Tubelight will release in cinemas worldwide on Eid.
