Kabir Khan's next directorial venture'Tubelight' is gearing up for release. Starring Salman Khan in the lead role, it has become the most talked about and highly awaited film of 2017. With the release being just around the corner, we bring to you the characters in the film. The movie is based on the 2015 Hollywood war drama 'Little Boy' , but we hear that Kabir Khan has added his touches to it and it doesn’t look like a rip-off. The movie is based in 1970s against the backdrop of the Indo-Sino war. But the movie concentrates more on the relationship between two brothers and not the war.
Salman Khan plays the role of 'Laxman Singh Bisht' who is slow in learning and picking things and is hence fondly nicknamed as 'Tubelight'.
Sohail Khan plays 'Bharat Singh Bisht', a soldier in the Indian army and Salman’s elder brother.
