Salman’s Tubelight Will Have Shorter Run Time Than Sultan & Bajrangi Bhaijaan


Find out why Tubelight makers decided to slash the film by 19 minutes just a week before its release!

Salman Khan is all set for his big Eid release, Tubelight this week. Director Kabir Khan, who is known for making films that usually have a lengthy run time, will this time surprise us with his latest release. Tubelight we hear was earlier supposed to be a 2 hours 35 minutes film, although, during the post-production process, the film has been slashed to 2 hours 16 minutes.


If one looks at Salman’s previous films, this could be said to his shortest film in recent times. The actor was last seen in Sultan which was nearly 2 hrs 50 minutes, even Bajrangi Bhaijaan was over 2 hours 40 minutes. The 2015 Diwali release, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo event went on to as many as 3 hours.

It seems to be an informed choice on the part of the makers considering the multiplex audience, prefers to have a movie going experience for not more than 2 hours.

As reported by DNA, “Kabir Khan’s films are usually lengthier than the stipulated two hours that the multiplex-viewing audience favours. His last film Bajrangi Bhaijaan was nearly three hours long and worked just fine. Tubelight was edited and readied at a run time of two hours and 35 minutes. But the team decided to slash the film by 19 more minutes just a week before its release,” said a source.
