Salman Khan to promote Tubelight in China. Will Kabir Khan's film hit the jackpot?

Made on the budget of Rs 100 crore, Salman Khan's Tubelight is already in profit even before its release. Here are the details

The teaser of Salman Khan’s Tubelight is just two days away from its release and the superstar is keeping his fans updated by posting new pictures every single day, making us even more curious about the film. Undoubtedly, it is one of the most-anticipated films of this year and will turn out to be a blockbuster.

Yash Raj Films (YRF) has bagged the overseas distribution rights of Tubelight, excluding the Middle East and North Africa. Not only this, the film will also have a grand release in China, firstly because the lead actress of Tubelight is Chinese actress Zhu Zhu and secondly because China is a huge market and will only add to the film’s international success.

This is Salman Khan Films’ first collaboration with YRF for the overseas territory. Avtar Panesar, Vice President, International Operations, YRF, said in a statement: “Salman Khan is arguably the biggest box office draw today and growing with each film. With him and director Kabir Khan reuniting for the third time, it makes Tubelight a very special and hugely anticipated film with a great deal of excitement both within the business and audiences alike.”

Amar Butala, Chief Operating Officer, Salman Khan Films, said: “Our last production Bajrangi Bhaijaan is Salman’s biggest overseas grosser to date and we hope to set new benchmarks with Tubelight and to reach out to newer audiences and markets.” Not only this, it is also being said that Salman Khan will promote the film in some major cities of China.

Made on the budget of Rs 100 crore, the film is already in profit even before its release. After selling the music rights to Sony Music for Rs 20 crore, the distribution rights of Tubelight are sold for a whopping Rs 200 crore in India and China. If reports are to be believed, the film will release across 1200 screens in China and the theatrical rights have been sold to an unnamed company for Rs 75 crore.

The film is slated to hit the screens on June 23 this year.
