Actor Sohail Khan, who will be seen with his superstar brother Salman Khan in the forthcoming movie `Tubelight’, says he never felt overshadowed by his sibling on screen. In `Tubelight’, they are playing on screen brothers.

Asked if he had any pressure to match up his performance and screen presence with Salman, Sohail said: "No, I never felt overshadowed by (Salman) bhai, because in this film, he is not playing 'The Salman Khan'. Maybe in audience's mind, he is a hero, but he did not act that way.

"In fact, I believe that whether it is Salman Khan or even any character actor, you should not compete in a scene to get more eyeballs or feel insecure. The moment you try any of that, you spoil the scene. I, as an actor, only focus on my part. The rest automatically falls in place," he added.

While the film is an emotional journey of two brothers, and the story is set in the 1960s, according to Sohail, director Kabir Khan has created a beautiful world that played an important part in helping them execute their performance.

"When we went to the set, we felt like we are standing in the 1960s' era. For a performer, that is important. Kabir has an eye for detailing and the team of production and set designers also have done a great job. Since I am a film producer too, working with this kind of a good filmmaker makes me learn so much that later I utilise it in my productions," Sohail said.

Having made his acting debut with the film `Maine Dil Tujhko Diya’, Sohail has produced films like `Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya’, `Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya?’, `Partner’ and `Jai Ho’, apart from being a director.
