Director AL Vijay’s Vanamagan trailer had the vibes of another Kadamban, another rehash of George of the Jungle.

The movie will see Jayam Ravi as a tribal leader and Sayesha Saigal as his co-star. “Vijay has gone about 30 percent extra with the budget to achieve his dream project. Only someone as passionate as him could have done this. If it fails, I vow not to charge any money from him when I work with him next.I’m telling all of this to the press so that it goes on record,” Ravi said at a press meet.

The movie has been bankrolled by AL Alagappan and has music by Harris Jayaraj. Prakash Raj, Thambi Ramiah Ramya Subramanian, and entrepreneur Sam Paul will be seen in pivotal roles. 


Salman Khan’s releases usually coincide with festivals, and Tubelight is no exception. Releasing on Eid, the film is directed by Kabir Khan. Tubelight is as an official remake of the 2015 Hollywood movie, Little Boy

The film also has Shahrukh Khan in a cameo. Kabir Khan said the role was such that a superstar had to play it, “It was a role screaming for a superstar cameo otherwise I wouldn’t have. I find it gimmicky. But when you will watch the film, you will realise the role needed a superstar.We went to him with the role and he was kind enough to agree. It is a brilliant cameo but I can’t say much about it because it will take away the joy of seeing it.”

Tubelight has been produced by Salman Khan himself and has music composed by Pritam. The movie will see Sohail Khan, Zhu Zhu and late actor Om Puri in pivotal roles.
