Salman Khan is easily one of the most bankable actors in the Bollywood industry today. His last year's Eid release titled Sultan, broke all records and became an All Time Blockbuster after entering the Rs. 300 crore club.
This holiday on Eid, Salman's new movie titled Tubelight will release and fans will get to see the coming together of the hunk actor with director Kabir Khan, after EK Tha Tiger and most recent Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

But the bigger issue remains: Whether Tubelight collections surpass the global hit Baahubali 2?
While fans on social media are constantly writing success stories of the movie, Salman in an interview to Firstpost said, "I doubt that Tubelight will break Baahubali 2’s record because the latter is one of the most freakish films that has been made. Hindi film-goers lapped up the film despite watching a dubbed version of it. It is because of the Hindi cine-goers that they have got these numbers. But as long as nobody loses money, I am fine. I don’t feel the pressure."
The actor himself is currently on a promotional spree for his movie after the trailer release was met with hightened expectancy. Speaking in the interview, Salman pointed out how he still gets nervous before the release of his film. He elaborated: “Yeah, but for different reasons. You do a film, you put in so much of hard work. That’s okay, but the reason that you have signed the film is that you think it will be a sure short hit. Now, the film releases and it is a flop, that means your thinking has gone all wrong."
Tubelight will hit theatres on June 25.
