Chinese star Zhu Zhu to promote 'Tubelight' with India visit

Chinese actress Zhu Zhu will be visiting India for the promotions of her Bollywood debut film Tubelight, in which she stars opposite Salman Khan.

"Heroines have always played strong roles in my films. Zhu Zhu plays an important role in the film but we can't talk about it. Also, she will be coming to India for promotions. But we are yet to chalk out a proper plan," Kabir Khan, the director, said.

With films like PK and Dangal doing good business in China, Tubelight makers are also planning to release the film in the country on a large scale.

"China market is different when it comes to releasing Indian films. The film has to be presented to them, they have to like it and then pass it. They have certain guidelines to release a film," Kabir said.

Tubelight is an adaptation of 2015’s Little Boy, but the Bajrangi Bhaijaan director says it has been made according to Indian sensibilities.

"Our film is an adaptation of Little Boy. We have taken the germ of idea and made it according to our sensibilities. We have made it in the context of our history."

Tubelight, releasing on Eid, also stars Sohail Khan, Om Puri with a  cameo by Shah Rukh Khan. Catch the trailer below.
