Mumbai: The much-awaited teaser of Salman Khan's Tubelight was released on social media on Thursday.
The less-than-a-minute video shows the many facets of the film - the war background and Sohail Khan as a soldier, a love story and a goofy Salman Khan.
The teaser ends with the announcement: "Yakeen tubelight ki tarah hota hai, der se jalta hai, lekin jab jalta hai to full light kar deta hai." Based on the teaser, Tubelight promises to be a gripping emotional story set during an Indo-Sino war.
Director Kabir Khan, who has teamed up with Salman Khan for the third time with "Tubelight", says the superstar this time has pushed himself a lot in terms of performance.
Kabir and Salman have collaborated on films like "Ek Tha Tiger" and "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" in the past.
"I have done three films with him (Salman) and this time he has pushed the boundaries in terms of craft and acting," Kabir told reporters at the special teaser screening of "Tubelight".
Without divulging details about Salman's role in "Tubelight", Kabir says the role is something that the "Dabangg" star has never done before.
"In whatever different looks that you have seen so far of Salman for 'Tubelight', all I can say is that he is playing a very different character this time. It is a character that he has never played in his career so far.
"It is a very challenging character. When I had narrated him the character I had told him it's extremely challenging and he had said he is up for the challenge."
