DUBAI: Kabir Khan, director of upcoming film Tubelight, has hinted that amidst all previous bad news for Salman Khan fans in Pakistan, the flick may be released within the country, but at a much later date.

In an interview to an entertainment website, the director was quoted saying, “We have not been told by any Pakistani producers or anyone from Pakistan about our film. Yes, I have heard there have been murmurs about our film essentially so that…may be some producers feel they have a better chance at the box office without a film over there. But if they feel some of their films have to be nurtured more, we can come there later as well.”

Khan further added that he feels their films should be enjoyed by people in Pakistan as they are great fans of Salman Khan.

More than the box office, we have got a lot of love from them for Bajrangi Bhaijaan. We hope to do the same with Tubelight this time,” he commented.

Earlier, it was rumored that Tubelight may not see the light of day on Eid-ul-Fitr in Pakistan as the cinema owners wanted to focus only on promoting Pakistani films during the holidays.
