    Kabir Khan has collaborated with Shah Rukh on a film for the first time in Tubelight.
    Filmmaker Kabir Khan managed to pull off a coup of sorts when he had Shah Rukh Khan doing a cameo in Salman Khan’s Tubelight. Come Tubelight this June, and the fans will see the two Khans sharing screen space in a film after 15 years.

    Talking about it in an interview, Kabir said that though he finds the idea of cameos by big stars “gimmicky”, the particular character in Tubelight demanded a superstar. “It was a role screaming for a superstar cameo otherwise I wouldn’t have. I find it gimmicky. But when you will watch the film, you will realise the role needed a superstar. We went to him with the role and he was kind enough to agree. It is a brilliant cameo but I can’t say much about it because it will take away the joy of seeing it.”

    This is the first time Kabir collaborated with Shah Rukh on a film. The duo, however, have known each other personally for a long time now. He recently began filming a short movie with the star for Dubai Tourism. When asked about a possibility of a full-fledged collaboration with Shah Rukh, Kabir said, “I would love to work with him. I have known him since college days in Delhi. We shot for an advertisement recently and we do speak about ideas. So, if there comes an idea, we both agree upon, I am sure we will collaborate.”

    The teaser of Tubelight released last week and has been received well by the fans and the critics. The period drama, set against he backdrop of Sino-Indian war in 1962, also stars Sohail Khan and Chinese actor Zhu Zhu, in her Bollywood debut. Tubelight is based on Little Boy, a 2015 World War II war fantasy-drama film.

    In Tubelight, filmmaker Kabir Khan managed to reunite Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan on screen after a long time. The two had previously worked together in popular films like Karan Arjun and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, to name a few. In the latest video released by Tubelight makers, Kabir Khan has expressed happiness in bringing the two superstars in one frame after so many years. Amidst this, we also learned that Shah Rukh had been Kabir’s senior when they both studied in Jamia Milia Islamia and often exchanged each other’s notes.

    “There are not too many people who can come into your film and demand attention. So I think it really needs to be Shah Rukh and Salman agreed with me and said ‘yeah Shah Rukh would be a great choice. We approached Shah Rukh and I must say that he has been very sweet about it. He has been very close to Salman…and Shah Rukh and I have known each other since college days. Infact it’s something not many people know but he was my senior in film school, in Jamia and I studied from his notes.”

    “Not many people know that I became a filmmaker because I was studying Shah Rukh’s notes. ” he added.

    In Tubelight, Shah Rukh Khan had played the role of a magician who gave Laxman (Salman Khan) a new kind of hope. He was a magician who planted the seed in Salman that he has the ability to move mountain with the power of hope or ‘yakeen’.

    Talking about the scene where Gogo, played by SRK, the magician entered, the director said,” I think it;s a magical scene. I think firstly to see Shah Rukh and Salman in one frame together was pure magic for us. The entire crew had a blast while shooting that scene. That was shot over one night. The energy on the set was so palpable,” said Kabir Khan.

    After Shah Rukh Khan’s famous appearance in Tubelight, Salman Khan is set to return the favour by making a cameo in his next film directed by Aanand L Rai. He is said to be a part of a song sequence.
