Salman Khan miffed with ‘Tubelight’ heroine Zhu Zhu

Salman Khan and the makers of upcoming film ‘Tubelight’ are reportedly upset with Chinese actress Zhu Zhu for revealing her association with the project too early. The team started shooting for the film in Ladakh recently.

A few days ago, Zhu Zhu had shared a photograph of her with Salman on Instagram which revealed that she is one of the leading ladies in the film. “On top of the palace with Mr #Salmankhan @ Leh Ladakh,” the caption read. Although the picture was immediately taken off, it was too late as the photograph had already gone viral by then.

Reportedly, the makers of the film had different plans to introduce Zhu Zhu, but her over-enthusiasm has annoyed Salman and the team.

"They wanted to introduce her properly after the current shooting in Ladakh which goes on for another fortnight. Zhu Zhu was immediately asked to remove her picture with Salman in Ladakh which she had so happily and innocently posted. In her defence, she didn't mean to jump protocol because she didn't know what the protocol was," SKJ Bollywood News quoted a source as saying.

The source also told the publication that the Kabir Khan directorial will have two leading ladies; one of which is Zhu Zhu and the other will be an Indian actress.

"They haven't signed the Indian actress opposite yet because shooting with her will happen in the next schedule. Right now the entire focus is on completing the Ladakh schedule," the source added.

The names of actresses like Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone have been doing the rounds for the film.

Tubelight’ is set in the backdrop of the Indo-China War of 1962 and is said to be a tale of two brothers. Salman is reportedly play a man with special needs, while Zhu Zhu is playing his love interest in the film.

‘Tubelight’ is being directed by Kabir Khan who has previously given two blockbusters with Salman – ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ in 2012 and ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ last year.
