Kabir Khan's film isn't an original story but a remake of this 2015 movie..
A lot is being written about Kabir Khan's next Tubelight with Salman Khan, Sohail Khan and Chinese actress Zhu Zhu. There is immense curiosity surrounding the project and the first looks of the film have already created great buzz. Kabir and Salman have been on a winning streak with Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan, so there is a great deal of expectation from Tubelight. However, there isn't a lot of information available on the film apart from the fact that its set against the backdrop of the Indo-China war.

So it came as a surprise when we heard that Tubelight isn't an original script but a remake of the 2015 Hollywood film Little Boy. The only difference between the two is that Little Boy had a track between a father and son while Tubelight has the same plot between two brothers - Salman and Sohail.
To those who haven't watched Little Boy it is a war fantasy drama film where Pepper (Jakob Salvati)- the little boy gets ruthlessly mocked by his classmates because of his small stature. The film is a pretty harsh depiction of the bullying he suffers. However, the story gets under way when Pepper’s father and chief protector (Michael Rapaport) goes off to war and then is reported missing in action, probably a Japanese prisoner. Pepper then gets desperate to have his father return, and the local priest encourages him to believe that if he has enough faith, he may have the capacity to alter the course of the war; eventually leading to Pepper's unbelievable mission to find his father against all odds and fears. Sounds interesting right?

Now obviously we don't have a little boy in Tubelight. All that we have is Salman Khan, Sohail Khan and Zhu Zhu. Speaking of which, our source explains how Salman essays the character of the little boy, here known as Tubelight. So just like how Pepper gets mocked for his diminutive stature, Salman too will be seen facing a lot of issues for being slow in picking up things - hence the name Tubelight. And as far as Sohail's role is concerned, he plays Salman's brother who goes missing in action during a war whereas Zhu Zhu comes as this constant romantic interruption!
