"Wrestling is not a sport. It's about fighting what lies within" screams the catch line of teaser trailer of YRF's next venture titled Sultan, which stars Salman Khan playing the title role. This film also marks Salman Khan's 'return' to YRF post their last film together Ek Tha Tiger.
While Sultan is being produced by Aditya Chopra and written-directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the shooting of the film will commence in November. Insiders suggest that Deepika Padukone has been roped in as the leading lady but an official announcement is yet to be made.
What is interesting is that, while on one hand, Salman Khan plays the title role of Sultan, a 40 year old wrestler from Haryana; on the other hand, Aamir Khan too is gearing himself all out to play a wrestler on Nitish Tiwari's Dangal, a film that is based on Mahavir Singh Phogat.
Sultan has been slated for an Eid 2016 release.
