After the huge success of Ek Tha Tiger, Salman Khan and Aditya Chopra teamed up again for yet another big film titled Sultan. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the film is a sports drama about a wrestler. Considered to be one of the biggest films of 2016, Salman Khan’s Sultan didn’t have a leading lady for a long time. Looks like Salman Khan starrer Sultan has finally got its leading lady in Anushka Sharma. The revelation was made on Twitter by the film’s official handle inviting everyone to “Meet Sultan’s Leading Lady! #SultanLeadingLady”.
YRF today announced Anushka Sharma’s name as the lead actress of Sultan. This is definitely a huge project for Sharma as she will be featuring opposite Salman Khan for the first time. Sultan is set to face off with Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees on Eid this year as both the films are likely to be released on the same day. Salman, who is reportedly playing a wrestler in the movie, has been training since last year for four hours a day.
