Manali: Having just finished the promotion campaign of Freaky Ali, Bollywood actor Salman Khan is in Manali ready to resume shooting for Kabir Khan’s Tube light.
For all those who are wondering whether the popular actor would be returning to Mumbai on 5th September, to celebrate Ganesh Utsav with family, sources claim that he would be occupied with the shooting schedules.
For the first time, Salman will be missing Ganpati festival as he needs to wrap up major portions of Tubelight before Bigg Boss 10 goes on air in October, say sources familiar with the actors upcoming engagements. These second shooting schedules of Tubelight majorly are focused on Salman’s scenes and later have his Chinese co-star Zhu Zhu wrap up her individual shots.
Tubelight’s second shooting schedule was to begin in Kashmir but had to be deferred because of t he unrest in the valley. Director Kabir had to settle for Manali as an alternative location site so as to complete the film on schedule.
“The makers have delayed the schedule seeing the disturbances in the valley. Salman shooting there is not a great idea now with so many security concerns. They were supposed to be there by August 22 but now it is postponed to September when things get better, hopefully,” said a location shooting manager associated with the film production
The Manali shooting schedule is expected to include location shoots at Palachan, Kothi, Solang, Raison and other locations.
