And now finally, the film’s director Kabir Khan has himself confirmed it. And SRK – Salman fans who were dying to see the two together can breathe easy.

Kabir Khan was quoted as saying, “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 realize 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.”

Tubelight will see the two superstars share screen space for the first time after 15 years. The last time Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan were seen together in a movie was in the film ‘Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam’ in 2002.
