So, Is Iulia Vantur singing a song in Tubelight?
Seems to be true, judging by the way director Kabir Khan cryptically replied.
Long ago when we heard that Shah Rukh Khan was a part of the Indo-Chinese Salman Khan film Tubelight and we asked Kabir, the maker denied it using ambiguous words. Later Kabir himself confirmed on his Twitter account that the man who lent him notes in college - Shah Rukh Khan - was doing another favour by being cast in Tubelight. It was indeed a casting coup getting the Khans together specially after their third and most famous fight at Katrina Kaif’s birthday party.
And now again when we asked him if the newest singing talent Iulia discovered by Salman through his music director Himesh Reshammiya has sung a song composed by Pritam for the film Tubelight, Kabir was equally abstruse. “As of now all these are rumours. Who exactly will be singing and what will the person be singing will be known at the right time,” he says.
Clearly the words, “as of now,” is a giveaway as we realised. Like the contraption called tubelight activates its light a rather late, Kabir Khan’s confirmation may soon spark on his twitter handle. We await confirmation.
