Meet Bollywood superstar Salman Khan's little co-star from 'Tubelight' - Matin Rey Tangu. All pics/Yogen Shah, Twitter and Instagram
Matin Rey Tangu hails from Itanagar in Arunachal Pradesh
He may have wanted to become a chef earlier but after working with Salman Khan in upcoming film 'Tubelight', Matin Rey Tangu says he now aspires to be an actor
Matin was recently introduced to the media in Mumbai at a special 'Tubelight' event
In a behind-the-scenes video from 'Tubelight', Salman Khan said that Matin used to complain on the set and say that he did not enjoy shooting as he wanted to be a chef
When Salman Khan asked his young co-star Matin to tell the media what he wanted to become in future, the kid said, "I want to be an actor. Ab actor ban gaya toh ban gaya (Now I have become an actor so I will continue)." "I will cook in free time," he added
When Salman asked Matin if he remembered the first day of the shoot, he said, "Yes, I remember the place where I threw up. I puked because I couldn't breathe."
When asked to share something about the 51-year-old superstar, the kid said, "One day he took off his shoes and jumped into the swimming pool."
He then turned to Salman and said, "now you say something about me."
Salman replied, "What should I say about Matin. He is a superstar, he is a superstar of Itanagar."
At the event, a media person asked Matin Rey Tangu if this was his first visit to India. For those who donÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂt know, Matin is from Arunachal Pradesh. Matin gave a very befitting and sassy reply to the media saying, "Main India mein hi rehta hoon to main India kaise aaunga?"(I am from India itself, so how can I come to India for the first time?)
We loved how Matin Rey Tangu handled the question and it seems he is already ready for Bollywood
'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 Friday, 'Tubelight' also features Salman Khan's younger brother Sohail Khan and Chinese actress Zhu Zhu
'Tubelight' also has a special appearance by Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan
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'."
Shooting for 'Tubelight' had ended in February earlier this year
