At the trailer launch of Tubelight, the Dabangg star was asked if it is hard to portray a character like the one in this film, to which the actor replied, “If you’re able to visualize the character after reading the screenplay and the story, you will be able to do the character perfectly. Out here it’s not only walking, it’s also the way he talks is very different. He is pure. And to do a pure character is like the most difficult thing there is.”

“In our lives, we are not like the purest of people. So, to portray someone like, maybe a character from Hum Apke Hain Kaun or to portray someone from Bajrangi Bhaijan or Tubelight, it’s the most difficult thing because to maintain the simplicity, the honesty and the purity of the character is like the most difficult thing that one has to do in films like this one,” said the 51-year-old.

“It is your own personality that goes against you in films like Tubelight,” Salman added.

At the trailer launch, Salman also spoke of his experiences of shooting the movie. He said he got genuinely emotional at times and actually cried. He also said that he misses the late Om Puri, who plays a vital role in the film.

‘Tubelight’ is slated to release on June 23.
