Are you ready for Salman Khan's Tubelight?

Directed by Kabir Khan, the film is set against the backdrop of the 1962 India-China War, and revolves around an Indian soldier who falls in love with a Chinese girl (here's a look at Salman's new heroine Zhu Zhu).

Shah Rukh Khan has a cameo in the film, please scroll down to see his look.

The film also stars Salman's brother Sohail Khan and the adorable Matin Rey Tangu, all of five years old.

The film has been shot in Ladakh and Manali.


Since the film is set during the India-China War, more than 600 actors were cast to play soldiers.


Discussing the scene.

Kabir Khan directed Salman earlier in Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

The script required untouched locations at a high altitude and challenging weather conditions.

Enjoying the view.
