Reacting to criticism over his similarities between his upcoming film ‘Tubelight’ and the Hollywood film ‘Little Boy’, Filmmaker Kabir Khan has said ‘Little Boy’ was officially credited in the teaser of the Hindi film.
He also said the story and treatment of ‘Tubelight’ is completely different from ‘Little Boy’.
“It is in the credits of Tubelight as Official Story Adaptation. But it’s just the seed of an idea. Everything else has been completely changed in Tubelight” Kabir Khan was quoted as saying.
Little Boy is a story about a child who sets out on a journey to find his father who has gone on war, but ends up giving lessons on humanity to everyone around him. Salman’s character in ‘Tubelight’ is said to be based on the child, with the backdrop of the 1962 Sino-Indian war.
‘Tubelight’ is scheduled to release in theatres on June 23.
