Now, Salman Khan’s Tubelight can also make it big at global box-office, trade analysts say. The Kabir Khan’s creation is already creating huge waves and, experts have also declared that the film can break the Baahubali 2’s record. In such a cut-throat box-office battle, Salman’s dumb guy avatar can bring in all the attention and business for the film.
Tubelight, which is adapted from Hollywood film Little Boy talks about the brotherly relationship between Salman and Sohail Khan. The movie revolves around the 1962 Indo-China War and Chinese actress Zhu Zhu will also be seen in leading roles.
The Chinese connection
One of the biggest factors that will help Tubelight in gaining hold of the international box-office especially China is its Chinese connection, an expert revealed. “Zhu Zhu is a big name in China. It's the Indo-China war and it's a film with a universal theme - that of brotherhood. It's a lethal combination for Salman. It won't be surprising if it does over 700-800 crore in China itself”, the expert was quoted as saying to DNA.
Further the experts alos said, "Have you seen the kind of phenomenal business Dangal has done in China? It has opened a bigger avenue for more revenue for filmmakers here. Baahubali 2 will soon also release in China and take its already high total to even higher scales. And Salman and team is planning a grand release of Tubelight in China along with a premiere."
