Salman Khan’s Tubelight is undoubtedly the most awaited movie of this year. Kabir Khan’s direction and Indo-China war’s backdrop have just made this movie one of much anticipated flick. Audiences have huge expectations from this film after the historical blockbuster ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and it is expected that Tubelight could challenge the box office number of Dangal.
The film is releasing on Salman’s favorite Eid festival, on 23rd June with only two weeks free run (before Tiger Shroff’s Munna Michael releases on 7th July). Though Tubelight will get solo release in North India, it will face a tough competition down South. South superstar Mahesh Babu’s yet-untitled film with A.R. Murugadoss will also hit theatres on 23rd June making it quite difficult for Salman’s movie. Mahesh Babu’s this film will hugely affect the business of Tubelight in Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. How much the effect could be will be known only at that time.
Hollywood movie ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ was also scheduled to release on 23rd June but the distributors Viacom 18 Motion Pictures have now reportedly moved it by a week.
