Kabir Khan's Tubelight teaser has been received with an overwhelmingly positive response among fans. With its inherent theme of positivity, joy, and optimism, the teaser to the film has caught the attention of film audiences. With the trailer set to be launched in a couple of hours, there is one person who does not enjoy a pleasant feeling watching these teasers, Salman Khan himself.
At the trailer launch of Kabir Khan's film, the actor revealed that "One moment he Om Puri was there and second moment he was gone . I dont sctually enjoying the teaser of the song."
Om Puri passed away on 6 January after suffering a heart attack at his home in Mumbai. This makes Tubelight the last film the veteran actor ever shot for. Khan said, "I see him right there and one morning I hear he fell down. I feel sad."
The veteran plays a substantial role in Kabir Khan's film and can be seen in both the teaser, and the first song 'Sajan Radio'. The song shows the veteran being engulfed in a hug by Salman Khan's character.
Om Puri was not the only veteran mourned by Khan. Speaking of the loss of actors Vinod Khanna and Reema Lagoo who passed away recently, Khan said, "In a space of 3-4 four months, I have lost these these people. They were all amazing people."
With the film set to release on the Eid weekend, it might make for a great tribute to the actor.
