After Hrs had reported that Khan’s film Tubelight was similar to Mexican director Alejandro Gomez Monteverde’s 2015 movie Little Boy, it now comes to light that the Salman Khan starrer is indeed officially adapted from it! Confirming this director Kabir Khan says, “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.”
Set during the World War 2 in Calfornia, Little Boy is the story of a misfit named Pepper or Little Boy (Jakob Salvati), who befriends the traditional enemies Japanese soldiers and teaches them a lesson or two in humanism. Kabir has trans-located the American-Japanese conflict into the 1962 IndoChina war. Little Boy’s Jakob Salvati transforms into Tubelight’s Salman Khan.
