Tubelight is set in the 60s in a hill station in North India. Director Kabir Khan is known to keep the look of his films authentic to the storyline. If the script demands shooting at a difficult location, he goes ahead with his crew. Tubelight is set in the 60s in a hill station in North India so the script required an untouched location at a high altitude and challenging weather conditions.
Kabir shares, “I like to shoot at real locations. For me the Locations are very important. I really feel that locations bring a certain character to the film and if you cheat a location too much, I feel somehow the character goes away.”
The film has been shot in Manali and parts of Ladakh. Salman Khan, Sohail and the rest of the cast and crew braved the difficult weather and shot for almost 3 months.
The team spent almost a month in Ladakh tackling some extreme weather conditions. On one of the days the location the team was shooting and the weather took a turn for the worst. Heavy winds were blowing and the shoot had to be stopped. It got so bad that the crew’s tents were uprooted!
