Salman Khan's Tubelight releases on Eid next year
Salman Khan on Saturday reached Manali in Himachal Pradesh for the shooting of Kabir Khan's movie Tubelight.
Besides shooting at Naggar, known for its quaint old houses, the film will have scenes in the majestic Rohtang Pass, the gateway to Lahaul-Spiti, and Solang Nullah, a government official said, adding that the crew will stay there for four weeks.
Earlier, the second schedule of Tubelight
was to begin in the Kashmir Valley, but it was deferred owing to prevailing unrest there, an insider said.
In July, the film was shot in Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir.
A large crowd gathered at Bhuntar airport near Kullu town to receive Salman, who was spotted wearing a Himachali cap.
Salman's younger sister Arpita Khan is married to a family hailing from Mandi town, just 108 km from Manali.
In May last year, Salman and his family visited Mandi, the hometown of his sister's husband Aayush Sharma, for the first time to attend 'dham', a traditional community feast being organised by Aayush's dad and state rural development minister Anil Sharma to felicitate his daughter-in-law and son.
Arpita married Aayush, the grandson of former telecom minister Sukhram, in 2014.
