Salman Khan also maintained that Tubelight does not focus on the Sino-Indian war but highlights how wars and war-like situations affect families on either sides.
"We have used the India-China war as a backdrop for the film. We've only touched that and basically convey that war should get over soon so that our soldiers come back to us and their soldiers go back to their country. Whenever a war happens, soldiers from both sides die, leaving many families without their sons or fathers," IANS quoted Salman Khan as saying.
"If you ask anybody if a war is good or bad, no one will say a war is good. Whatever the conflicts, they should be solved across the table. It's a negative emotion. Nobody supports it, but it happens and nobody knows why," he added.
Tubelight also stars Salman's brother Sohail Khan and Chinese actress Zhu Zhu.
Tubelight marks Salman Khan's third collaboration with director Kabir Khan. They have previously worked together in films like Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
Tubelight is scheduled to release in theatres on June 23, two days ahead of Eid.
