The filmmaker-actor also said there are possibilities that Varun Dhawan or Tiger Shroff is roped in for the movie. “If it is a mature character, then it will be Salman bhai but if the guy is young then we will approach someone younger — actors like Varun Dhawan or Tiger Shroff. But nothing has been finalised as of now,” said Sohail.

Interestingly, Sohail will be seen alongside Salman in Tubelight. “I don’t think I am allowed to talk about it but it is a small role. I play his brother. There are some four-five scenes with him and the rest are with the other cast members. It was great to be sharing screen space with Salman bhai after a long time.” Sohail said.
