To mark this special event, a set of the best tweets from Salman's Q&A was curated on Twitter Moment. Here are some highlights and a video from the session: 

Fan: As we know there are a lot of kids in the film. How was the whole atmosphere on set like?

Salman: There is one kid in the film and his name is Matin Rey. He is playing a character called Guo Guo. I can't pronounce his name and I kept calling him Gu. He was saying Gu nahi Guo Guo. He is playing a Chinese kid in the film and I absolutely love and adore him.

Fan: What was your most cherished memory, while working with your brother on Tubelight?

Salman: Every single moment, working or not working with my brothers, is the most cherished moment of my life.

Fan: Which is your favourite song from Tubelight?

Salman: I like all the songs of Tubelight. You will like the songs like Agar, Tinka Tinka, Radio and Nach Meri Jaan, when you watch them on the screen.

Fan: The best compliment you have received from your father?

Salman: The best compliment I have received from my father is for Tubelight. He said that you have done a good job.

Fan: When you are doing a role like Lakshman, when you come back home does it still stay with you?

Salman: Usually, you don't take any character home, as the shot is cut while filming it. But the kind of films I am doing, be it Bajarangi Bhaijan and Tubelight, I have only been doing films that I can take back home. If I can try this on screen, I will also try and implement at least a little bit of it in my real life.

Fan: Will we get to hear any song from Tubelight in your voice?

Salman: Yes! You might! Only when I am doing a concert, I will sing those songs in my voice.

Fan: Which was the toughest scene for you in Tubelight?

Salman: Everything was very simple in Tubelight, but emotionally it was quite disturbing. Sohail is playing my brother in the film. He goes to war and I am wondering whether he is coming back to me and will be with me or I will be left alone all of my life. That one emotion of brother was really tough for me.

Fan: Is Tubelight something that Salman Khan has never done?

Salman: Yes! I have never done a film like this and that's reason I wanted to do it. The best thing of the film is that I get to play this character with my real brother. So there is no acting involved and it's just how are in our real life. We played exactly like that.

Fan: What was the whole thought behind the Radio step? Can you tell us?

Salman: I have not done any contribution for the moves of the song Radio. It was Remo's idea and he showed those steps. I liked it and did it in the film.

Fan: Like Kaptaan and Badhu, did you have any nicknames for each other growing up?

Salman: We have never had nicknames. Sohail has always been Sohail. He calls me Bhai as he is younger to me. So today, I have become Bhai to the whole world. With a lot of love and respect, people call me Sallu Bhai, Bhaijaan and kids call me Salman and I love that.

Fan: One thing Kabir Khan has that other directors don't have?

Salman: Kabir Khan does not make clever films. He goes by emotions.

Fan: Tubelight sabko light deta hai. What is the one thing in your life that lights up your life?

Salman: Love, honesty, loyalty, brotherhood, family, friends, festivals, happiness light up my life.
