Will Salman Khan's Tubelight release in Pakistan? Read the official statement

Salman Khan starrer Tubelight might release in Pakistan. The actor's last release Sultan is the highest grossing Indian film in its Box Office

Salman Khan’s upcoming film Tubelight will hit the theatres on June 23. There is a lot of excitement among the fans who are eagerly waiting for their superstar to take the Box Office by storm. Now, we hear that the film might release in Pakistan. However, it is yet to be seen whether the government in our neighbouring country gives a green signal to the film or not.

“Salman has a huge following in Pakistan, which has only grown with the positive messaging on Bajrangi Bhaijaan,” Amar Butala, Chief Operating Officer (COO), Salman Khan Films, said in a press release.

However, there are reports that Salman’s big Eid release might face hurdles as the film distributors in Pakistan want no competition to local films Yalgaar and Shor Sharaba that will release around the festival.

“We hope to release Tubelight in Pakistan as well, and our efforts continue in that direction, but we respect the law of the land and judiciary if they decide otherwise,” Butala added. It should be noted that Salman has a huge fan following in Pakistan, and his films have done exceptionally well at the Box Office there. His 2016 release Sultan earned a whopping Rs 37 crore while Bajrangi Bhaijaan raked in Rs 23 crore.
