No matter how upsetting the headline sounds to the die-hard Salman Khan fans, truth is the actor is indeed shown getting some blows from a wrestler! The scene is from his upcoming film, Sultan, in which, Salman plays a wrestler. As a part and parcel of the sport, one gets beaten up too, no matter how good he/she is at the art.
An entertainment portal PopDiaries managed to grab these shots of the actor filming a fight scene for Sultan. For all we know, Khan will definitely spring in action and strike back, beating his opponent in the reels to follow!
Salman plays the title role, that of a 40-year-old wrestler, in Ali Abbas Zafar’s sports drama. Obviously, we will see a heavier and bulkier Salman in the film. He will also be seen doing a lot of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) in the film. Khan will be sporting two different looks in Sultan. In the initial portions of the film, he will appear muscular, and the later reels will witness a leaner Salman.
While we are on it, did you know Katrina Kaif was first approached to play Khan’s leading lady in Sultan? Well, here goes all the dope – the film had been offered to Katrina in the past, but since the actress was dating Ranbir Kapoor then, and didn’t want to upset her beau by working with Salman, she opted out of the movie. Ouch!
Sultan is set to release during Eid, on 6th July 2016.
