The almighty Indian Army not only protects us anymore, but it has now taken up the responsibility to entertain us too! That's right. Salman Khan's latest movie's trailer was released recently which revealed that the movie revolves around the Indo-China conflict as its backdrop.
There have been many movies that have their story-line based upon army life and a war zone, but this new movie by Salman Khan has something that adds up to its credibility, the Indian Army itself.
About 600 artists were taken under process to play army personnel for the movie, and guess who trained them to play the cadet's part? The Indian Army indeed! This unique yet effective idea to get the best out of the 600 artists was brought up by the director of the movie, Kabir Khan.
It was reported that when the crew asked the Indian Army to train these actors for Tubelight, the army personnel were more than happy to help and took the supporting actors/artists under their shelter for a couple of weeks.
The Indian army soldiers organised a boot camp for the actors. They trained the actors like a real soldier, with rigorous training to give them the shape and quickness of a real soldier. This transformed the actors completely. And hence they looked convincing enough to act like real life soldiers. In this boot camp, they were even taught how to hold their weapons and armour perfectly.
