Kabir Khan, the director of the film, came up with a unique yet effective idea to get include 600 real soldiers in Tubelight, to perform with conviction. He asked the Indian army to train these actors for the film, to which they readily agreed. They took the actors under their regime for a couple of weeks.

They organized a boot camp for the actors and trained them rigorously to make them look like real-life soldiers. The actors had a complete transformation and showcased the body language of a soldier that looks completely convincing. They even learnt to hold their weapons and armour perfectly.

Tubelight is produced by Salma Khan and Salman Khan. It stars Salman Khan, Sohail Khan and the Chinese actress Zhu Zhu. It is being co-produced by Amar Butala. Pritam has been roped in to compose music for the film.
