The teaser of Salman Khan's Tubelight, which was released on Thursday, May 4, has already crossed 4 million views in Youtube in less than 24 hours. Amid huge hype and promotion, the teaser was released by the makers and soon many Bollywood biggies took to their social media accounts to retweet it.
While millions are going gaga over the two-minute video clip, many fans of Salman were left disappointed. On Twitter, people have been expressing their dissatisfaction with the teaser, as it failed to excite them for the film. Others found similar vibes with that of Salman's Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
The negative remarks seemed to have aroused as Salman and director Kabir Khan raised the bar after delivering a spectacular film like Bajrangi Bhaijaan, which was touted to be the actor's career best performance.
Tubelight will narrate the unique love story of an Indian man (played by Salman) who falls for a Chinese actress Zhu Zhu during 1962 Sino-Indian War. The movie, which is based on Hollywood flick Little Boy, will hit the theatres in July during Eid.
This is the third time Salman and director Kabir Khan are teaming up for a movie after Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. It is expected to surpass the box office collection of Salman's Sultan.
