Finally the first poster of Salman Khan‘s upcoming EID release Tubelight is out. And as was expected, it has sent the fans in a state of frenzy. The poster features a man, supposedly Salman Khan, facing backwards. I’ve to admit the poster took me by surprise and is one of the best when compared to his recent films. The poster has a very understated feel to it. It speaks volumes about the kind of film it’s gonna be and it has me really excited. I am sure many of you will agree with me. Unlike recent Salman Khan film’s poster, it is subtle.

But my question is if that is really Salman Khan? Even though he looks like Salman but if one remembers correctly when the director of the film Kabir Khan had released the first still of the film, that too, had a man, supposedly Salman Khan, in an army uniform facing backwards. No points in guessing, the first look too went viral on the web.

But later it was revealed that the man in the poster was not Salman Khan but Sohail Khan, who is also a part of the film. And that revelation was made by film’s director Kabir Khan himself.

You have both, the first poster and the first still here and it’s for you fans to decide if this indeed is Salman Khan? As the poster itself says, “‘Kya Tumhe Yakeen Hai’?

Directed by Kabir Khan, Tubelight is based on the 1962 Indo-Sino war. Tubelight talks a lot about the bond between Salman and Sohail. Salman is called Tubelight in the film coz he plays a man who is a bit slow in picking up and learning things. The film stars Salman Khan, Sohail Khan, Chinese actress Zhu Zhu, Late veteran actor Om Puri and Shah Rukh Khan in a cameo.
