Ever since the trailer of Salman Khan-starrer ‘Tubelight’ was released, two things have been primarily doing the rounds. First is the unmatchable bond shared by real-life brothers Salman and Sohail on-screen, and second is Salman’s goofy, innocent and funny side that has been winning hearts across the country. Having said that, there’s one thing that most of us have been thinking about, why was Sohail chosen to play Salman’s on-screen brother? Had the chemistry been same if someone was shortlisted for the role? Well, director Kabir Khan and the two Khan bhais have answered the question for you.

A video titled ‘Bhai Ka Bhai’ was posted by the makers of ‘Tubelight’, where the two brothers opened up about taking up the role. Talking about ‘Tubelight’, Kabir Khan said, “The moment you see them on screen, you don’t have to spend time in establishing sibling bonding. You know, one shot and the audience is already convinced that these two are brothers. They are very close to each other.” When asked about his baby brother, Salman said “There was no better choice than Sohail for this film because he is my brother. We understand each other. If there was an emotional scene, it was natural for us to display emotions.”

Sohail too added in the conversation stating that, “Salman Bhai mentioned Tubelight to me. They wanted someone who wouldn’t just play the character of his brother but also felt the character. He is my younger brother in the film but he is also someone who adores his elder brother and protects him for certain reasons.” The movie is slated to release on June 23. But, we are sure Sohail must have loved to play the role, because who wants to miss the chance of schooling their elder brother even if it’s on-screen.
While the two brothers are slaying it onscreen with their cute relationship, some of us will be still fighting with our siblings over the remote or who gets to laze on the couch while watching TV. However, we loved the duo even when they were fighting against each other to win Priyanka Chopra’s heart in ‘God Tussi Great Ho’. Also how can we forget their hilarious avatar when they were trying to impress Katrina with their funny antics in ‘Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya?’
