Interestingly, Anushka is looking fit and slim and it seems that she is taking these lessons very carefully as she has to match it up with Salman, who is also portraying the character of a Haryanvi wrestler. Anushka is his love affair but she is also a professional wrestler in the film.
It looks like this is one of the most challenging roles for Anushka, who had performed various different roles in her 8 years of career. It was said that Anushka will put on few kilos specially for this role like Salman but these pictures are saying different story as she is looking so slim and trim.
Sultan is one of the most anticipated films of the year. Ali Abbas Zafar, who had earlier directed some successful films like ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ (2010) and ‘Gunday’ (2014), is now on directing his biggest film of his career.
Recently, the makers had unveiled the new clean shaved look of Salman, who had been in beard look for the past few months.
Produced by Aditya Chopra owned Yash Raj Films, Sultan is scheduled to release on Eid 2016 along with another big film of Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Raees’ which is a crime-thriller based on the life of Gujarati liquor king ‘Miyan Bhai’ played by SRK.
