The promotions for Salman Khan’s much awaited film Tubelight has begun today. The makers have released the first promo which introduces the social media handles of the film.
Kabir took to Twitter and teased fans with this message: It all begins today for #Tubelight. Later on he wrote on Twitter, “Eid manao Tubelight ke saath! Follow @TubelightKiEid! #TubelightKiEid @BeingSalmanKhan @kabirkhankk @amarbutala
The video features the phrase ‘TubelightKiEid’ lighting up on the screen. It also has a chorus of children saying ‘jal jaa…jal jaa’ and then cheering in unison when the phrase lights up.
Salman and Kabir are planning to bring kids on board for promoting the film. Kabir confirmed the same in an interview with Mumbai Mirror. “Salman and I decided to use a chorus by kids for the teasers but we didn’t want to get trained kids to do it. So he suggested we round up a bunch of kids from his building and do it in a fun way. He and I then spoke to the kids ranging from six to 11 years and took them to the studio where Salman explained to them what we are doing. We are using this chorus in the teaser logo as well as the teaser promo,” Kabir was quoted in the interview.
“Salman really enjoys working with kids and has a special equation with them that he doesn’t often share with grown-ups. Even when we are shooting amongst thousands of spectators, he will always point to a kid, call him and spend time with him. That’s also one of the reasons Bajrangi Bhaijaan which revolved around Munni played by Harshali (Malhotra) happened; I knew he would have a special connect with the child,” Kabir added.
