It looks like Matin Rey is going to be the bigger scene-stealer that the star of the movie Tubelight, Mr Salman Khan himself. The little tot stole our hearts when Salman Khan introduced us to him a few days back in a grand event. Be it Matin cherubic cuteness and how he handled media's questions with innocent frankness or his heart-warming camaraderie with Salman Khan at the event, suddenly we want to watch Tubelight for this little star-in-the-making. And like some ignorant journalists were not aware of this, the little boy is very much an Indian like any of us, though he is supposed to play a Chinese character in the movie.
Matin plays a Chinese boy with whom Salman Khan's character Laxman aka Tubelight befriends in the movie. On the eve of the release of the movie, Salman Khan had shared the video of Matin auditioning for the movie with other kids. And I bet ya this will be the cutest thing you will see today. Be it the way he is reciting the lines, or his playful smile or his exuberant dancing, he was the standout among the other kids, and it was clear why he became the chosen one.
Here's the video....
Tubelight is directed by Kabir Khan, known for making Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Ek Tha Tiger, New York and Kabul Express. The movie is a moving human drama set in the background during the 1962 Indo-China War. Apart from Salman Khan and Matin, the movie also stars Sohail Khan, late Om Puri, Chinese actress Zhu Zhu and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub. Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in a cameo in the movie, appearing in a crucial scene where he plays a magician.
