Chinese actor Zhu Zhu is set for a grand Bollywood debut with Tubelight starring Salman Khan.

Good news for all you Salman Khan fans. If rumours are to be believed, Bollywood’s Dabangg star may have started shooting for his next film, Tubelight, with director Kabir Khan. Salman arrived in Ladakh on Wednesday for the film and was seen obliging fans by posing with them. Chinese actor Zhu Zhu, who was also in Ladakh, shared a picture with him on her Instagram and rumours mills started speculating if she is the one playing the female lead in Tubelight.

What got us thinking was the fact that Zhu Zhu has since removed the picture even as she continued to post pictures from her Ladakh visit.

Three days ago, she had shared a picture from Mumbai with the post saying, “My first Hindi lessons”.

Now, are we going overboard if we speculate she is learning Hindi for a film and would star opposite the actor she was spotted with? Not really.

The director, too, had earlier said Tubelight will have a “China element in the story” but he will be shooting the film in Ladakh.

Tubelight will mark the third collaboration between Kabir and the 50-year-old Dabangg star after blockbusters Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Asked if their upcoming film will follow the lines of Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Kabir said, “In terms of its emotional space, it is similar to Bajrangi Bhaijaan. But the story is very different. It is more of humour and emotional space that we (Salman and I) haven’t delved into.”

Pritam will compose the music for the film that is set to hit theatres next year.
