Kashmir unrest delays Salman Khan’s ‘Tubelight’ shoot in Valley ‘indefinitely’

Salman Khan

Their collaboration has led to Bollywood’s biggest blockbusters, like Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

So Kabir Khan and Salman Khan’s latest film together — Tubelight — has also generated substantial buzz.

Tubelight, which is set against the backdrop of the 1962 Sino-Indian War, required extensive shoot schedules in Ladakh and Kashmir.

However, the latest news reports suggest that the unrest in the Valley has thrown a spanner in the Tubelight team’s plans.

The Times of India reported that Kabir Khan has now put his plans for shooting in Kashmir on hold, “indefinitely”.

The Tubelight team will leave for Ladakh on 25 July. Unlike the original plan, they will not be moving on to Kashmir, but returning home to Mumbai, once the Ladakh leg of the shoot wraps up.

A spokesperson for the film has said that the team does not at present know when they will be able to shoot the Kashmir portions.

Salman and Kabir had shot extensively in Kashmir while working on Bajrangi Bhaijaan as well. In fact, Salman had even ‘adopted’ a Kashmiri family, helping them out financially.
