Blockbuster director-actor duo Kabir Khan-Salman Khan is set to be back after their superhit stint in 2015, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, for the upcoming film Tubelight.
Talking about the same, the National Award winning director said that this film is very different to the flicks he has made earlier. “Needless to say that my films always have political backdrops because these are the kind of stories that excited me. So, that’s always gonna be there. As far as story goes, it is very different to what I’ve done so far,” Kabir said.
He continued, “The film is on a territory that Salman and I have not ventured yet. So, we are excited about it.”
