Bollywood superstar Salman Khan on Saturday reached Manali in Himachal Pradesh for the shooting of Kabir Khan’s movie Tubelight.
Besides shooting at Naggar, known for its quaint old houses, the film will have scenes of the majestic Rohtang Pass, the gateway to Lahaul-Spiti, and Solang Nullah, a government official told IANS.
He said the film crew would stay here for four weeks. Salman needs to complete his shoot before he begins hosting Bigg Boss 10 in October.
In the photos shared by the superstar’s fans on social media, we spotted Khan wearing the traditional cap in the midst of locals.

Earlier, the second schedule of Tubelight was to begin in the Kashmir Valley, but it was deferred owing to prevailing unrest there, an insider said.
In July, the film was shot in Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir.
A large crowd gathered at Bhuntar airport near Kullu town to receive Salman, who was wearing a Himachali cap.
The film is said to be a historical drama based on the 1962 India-China War.
