For Sohail, working on the film was a learning process. “I have always been a fan of Kabir Khan…When I look at his films as a technician I think he creates a world that is different but touches everyone’s heart,” he said. “I feel fortunate to be working on the same set with Kabir. Unfortunately, I couldn’t be an assistant (director) anymore but I got the opportunity to be an actor. It (experience of working on ‘Tubelight’) was a learning process for me. I got to learn a lot from this film,” he added.

Also starring Chinese actress Zhu Zhu, late legendary actor Om Puri, and Shah Rukh Khan in a cameo appearance, Tubelight is set to release on Eid.
