Salman and Sohail have been on a promotional spree for their upcoming movie Tubelight. During one of the media interaction sessions, when Saman was asked about his favourite director among Arbaaz and Sohail, he said: “Since Arbaaz doesn’t want to direct, I feel Sohail is a better director because he is more patient and with Sohail, you can improvise on things but in a similar situation, Arbaaz gets panicked and his blood pressure starts to fluctuate.”
“Now we are going to start ‘Dabangg 3‘, so he (Arbaaz) told me ‘Very good, but I am not going to direct it and I am only producing it’. So I said, ‘Very good, we will find a good director for that’.”
Directed by Kabir Khan, Tubelight is inspired from Hollywood movie ‘A Little Boy’. Also starring Chinese actress Zhu Zhu, Om Puri and Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub, the movie is scheduled to release on 23 June 2017.
