In an interview to an entertainment portal, Salim stated that they will give compensation to the distributors adding that the amount is yet to be decided. He further said that Tubelight is still running in theatres and doing business. They will decide the amount once this stopped.
On being asked what didn’t work in favour of Kabir Khan’s directorial venture, Bhaijaan’s father said that the film was made with sincerity but it is difficult to say why it didn’t work.
Along with Salman, Tubelight also featured Sohail Khan, Matin Rey Tangu and Chinese actress Zhu Zhu.
