Shah Rukh Khan has a Great Cameo Role in Tubelight : Kabir Khan. Director of Salman Khan’s Tubelight talks about the character and the role of SRK in the film : Details.
“I’ve known Shah Rukh for a long time and the equation with him hasn’t changed at all. It’s still fun. I was actually very close friends with Gauri, his wife, so we’ve always been very warm and friendly. When I took the idea of this cameo in ‘Tubelight’ to him, he readily agreed. I didn’t have to convince him at all,” Khan said.
It had to be Shah Rukh, he added, for the role was that of a superstar. “Trust me, it’s a great cameo and a fantastic character. Shah Rukh is someone I’ve always looked up to as a senior. He is also probably the most well read person in the industry,” he said.
The director said he is not worried about matching the success of ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ with his new film but hopes that people will like ‘Tubelight’, too. “We really enjoyed making ‘Bajrangi…’ and the people appreciated it and gave it a kind of love which was unprecedented. But I don’t think that can become the benchmark for us. You’ll always be under pressure if you compare any new film that you make with the one that did so spectacularly well,” he added.
All that he has to do, he says, is to make a film with the “same passion” as they did with Bajrangi. “And hope people like it as much as they liked ‘Bajrangi’.”
