Five-year-old Arunachal kid Matin Rey Tangu is already a superstar, thanks to his adorable looks and camaraderie with Salman Khan as witnessed during Tubelight's promotions. But do you know the child artiste had to fight it out with a thousand other kids who were auditioning for the pivotal role? It was quite a demanding role because it not only involved the portrayal of a range of emotions, but also had a punishing shooting schedule in extreme weather conditions. Salman shared Matin's audition clip on his Facebook page yesterday, where the child actor is seeing acting out a range of emotions and also dancing.

Making a child act on screen is no mean task and the video reinforces the fact. The video features all the workshops that Matin and nine other kids had gone through before he was finalised for the role. 


Salman and Matin's on-screen chemistry is creating a lot of buzz and people are also referencing the effortless chemistry Bhai shared with another child artiste — Harshali Malhotra aka Munni in Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015).
