'Tubelight' marks Chinese actress Zhu Zhu's debut in Bollywood. The actress underwent special Hindi class to learn her dialogues. The actress worked hard at her diction but since she only has very days to learn, at times she would take longer to get the language right and director Kabir Khan is known to be a perfectionist.

Salman turned to Zhu Zhu's rescue. Salman would go over her lines before her take, explaining the meaning of her lines. He even came up with easy ways to help her remember these lines.

'Tubelight' is produced by Salma Khan and Salman Khan and directed by Kabir Khan. It stars Salman Khan, Sohail Khan and Zhu Zhu. It is co-produced by Amar Butala. The executive producer is Rajan Kapoor, the associate producer is Garima Mehta and music is by Pritam.
'Tubelight' is a war drama set amidst the backdrop of the 1962 Indo-China War. After blockbusters like 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' and 'Ek Tha Tiger', 'Tubelight' is Salman Khan and Kabir Khan's third film together.

Slated to release on Eid this year, 'Tubelight' also features Salman Khan's younger brother Sohail Khan and Chinese star Zhu Zhu. 'Tubelight' also has a special appearance by Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan. 'Tubelight' marks the late actor Om Puri's last Bollywood outing.
Yash Raj Films (YRF) has bagged the overseas distribution rights -- excluding Middle East and North Africa -- for 'Tubelight'. This is Salman Khan Films' first collaboration with YRF for the overseas territory.

Salman Khan's 'Tubelight', however, might not release in Pakistan around the Eid as a few local filmmakers and organisations have demanded the release of the film in the country be put on hold.
The Pakistan Film Distributors Association and the Pakistan Film Producers Association, along with various local film-makers, are actively trying to stall the release of 'Tubelight', citing better business for the Pakistani films scheduled to release at the same time.
Shooting for 'Tubelight' had ended in February earlier this year.
Talking about Salman Khan's performance in 'Tubelight', Kabir Khan had earlier said, "Salman will be seen in a completely different way in the film ('Tubelight'). If people have thought that Salman's performance is special in 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', then his performance in 'Tubelight' is five times better than it. The audience will see Salman's better performance in 'Tubelight'."
