The actress was probably the last one to come on board, but has been absolutely in super action to give her role her hundred percent. That’s Anushka Sharma – the talented actress and a thorough professional. She is set to play a woman wrestler in Yash Raj Films’ next big project, Sultan, starring Salman Khan as the male lead; he also plays a wrestler in the project. So yup, Khan and Sharma are geared up to kick some asses while they turn romantic onscreen for the very first time, in Sultan.
Here’s an image of Anushka showing off some real action! Director Ali Abbas Zafar shared the pic on his Twitter page, captioning it thus, “Haryane ki Sherni ” dhobi pachad master” @AnushkaSharma in action.” The actress sure looks like she has totally sunk her teeth into the skin of her demanding character. She underwent rigorous wrestling training sessions to prepare for her role, learning some techniques of the sport.
Salman plays the title role, that of a 40-year-old wrestler, in 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.
Sultan is set to release during Eid, on 6th July 2016.
