Salman Khan makes for a great co-star when it comes to working with kids and history is proof. We have seen how in Bajrangi Bhaijaan the little Munni became a huge star. And looks like he is going to repeat the same with his upcoming movie Tubelight. The much talked about film will feature a child actor, the photo of which was shared by Salman Khan recently.

The little munchkin goes by the name Matin Rey Tangu. Salman Khan shared two photos with the little star—one that had them smiling and the another had Salman hugging him in what seemed like mid of an emotional scene. A look at these two pictures hints that Matin may have an important role to play in the film.

Directed by Kabir Khan, Tubelight has its basis on the Indo-Sino war. The film has Salman in the role of a dumb man who takes time to register things. It also stars Chinese actress Zhu Zhu and Salman’s brother Sohail Khan and late actor Om Puri.
