Kabir erected a huge set for a song featuring Salman Khan in Tubelight
Kabir Khan is known to shoot his films on real and unexplored locations. However, he had to make an exception for The Radio song in his upcoming film Tubelight. The first song of the film is set to be launched by Salman Khan in Dubai, as he shooting for Tiger Zinda Hai with Katrina Kaif. Before the song launch Kabir revealed an interesting story behind it.
After shooting at natural locations in North India, Kabir wanted to shoot Radio in a town square typical to those in the 1960’s. The team went on a recce in and around to find a town which was untouched by modernisation. Since they were unable to find an apt location, he decided to construct it in Mumbai itself.
Kabir was adamant on the set looking authentic right to the minute details; hence the team converted three acres of Film City into the fictional town Jagatpura. The Radio song was shot there with over a 1000 dancers. The track which is a celebratory song in the film had been shot on a very large scale. It has the touch of the 60’s and required a huge crowd to be dancing on it. Kabir had organised for 200 dancers and about 800 juniors to be part of the song along with Salman Khan.
Tubelight is based on Indo-China war; it also stars Sohail Khan, Chinese actress Zhu Zhu and others.
