Director Kabir Khan went the extra mile to shoot The Radio Song.
After shooting amid beautiful natural locations in North India, Kabir Khan wanted to shoot 'The Radio Song' in a town square typical to those in the 1960s. The team went on a recce in and around to find a town which was untouched by modernisation.
Since they were unable to find an apt location, he decided to construct it in Mumbai itself. Kabir was adamant on the set looking authentic right to the minute details, hence the team converted three acres of Film City into the fictional town Jagatpura. The Radio song was shot there with over a 1000 dancers.
The track, which is a celebratory song in the film, had been shot on a very large scale. It has the touch of the 60s and required a huge crowd to be dancing on it. Kabir had organised for 200 dancers and about 800 juniors to be part of the song along with Salman Khan.
Tubelight first teaser was released on May 4.
Tubelight is a war drama set amidst the backdrop of the 1962 Indo-China War.
After blockbusters like Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Ek Tha Tiger, Tubelight is Salman Khan and Kabir Khan's third film together.
