Right from the teaser to the recently launched trailer, ‘Tubelight’ is winning hearts of the audiences and the industry people have showered praises on it as well.

The main reason being superstar Salman Khan who has a fan frenzy across the globe. The man, however, stays humble and modest. The man who is said to have a golden heart is also a man of many talents. Whilst, he had taken to crooning for his protégé’ Sooraj Pancholi’s film ‘Hero’, he has now turned a painter for ‘Tubelight’.

Salman Khan has been known to be a connoisseur of the fine arts and has always shown a keen interest in painting and sketching. In his alone time, Salman took to painting and was seen working on a few sketches of Jesus Christ. The entire crew was in awe of the excellent work of the actor. We hear that the actor has kept several of his paintings locked up in his Panvel farmhouse.
