Leaked: Shah Rukh Khan’s magician look in ‘Tubelight’

Salman Khan’s much-awaited Eid release ‘Tubelight’ hit screens today. The film marks the reunion of Salman and Shah Rukh Khan on the silver screen after a gap of 15 years. The duo last worked together in 2002 movie ‘Hum Tumhare Hai Sanam’. They also shared screen space in ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ and ‘Karan Arjun’.

The trailer of ‘Tubelight’ did include Shah Rukh’s presence for a nano second, a blink-and-miss appearance, that too of a silhouette. Only an alert eye could notice it. Now, fans of the ‘Raees’ actor have got hold of a few pictures of Shah Rukh in his character of a magician Goga Pasha in the film, and shared them online.

Shah Rukh’s character is seen dressed in a black outfit with a colour jacket-like thing. There is a tattoo-like mark on his right cheek and he is wearing rings in his left ear.

Earlier, revealing details about Shah Rukh’s character, Salman had said that his role is pivotal as it brings a turning point in Laxman’s life (Salman’s character). Shah Rukh is like a magician who gives power to Laxman to re-establish his belief, and from there on, Laxman’s belief and self-confidence reaches another level.   

Salman also added that Shah Rukh had agreed to do the role even before he asked him. "When Kabir (director Kabir Khan) narrated the subject to me, he said, 'For this role we should get Shah Rukh.' So, when I called him and I told him that there is a small role in ‘Tubelight’ which I would like you to do it, before completing my sentence, Shah Rukh said, 'I will do it.' That's how he made his entry into the movie," the ‘Sultan’ actor told during a promotional event.
