Salman Khan who is currently busy in the promotions of Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, has already started training for this next film Sultan.

According to the sources, “Salman is prepping up for the film right now as the makers will begin shooting for the film from November 22.” Sultan is all set to clash with Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees next Eid.

The 49-year old actor is already on a high protein diet and a strict workout regime as he is gaining weight to look like a wrestler. Hollywood fight choreographer Larnell Stovall  is training Salman for Sultan. While talking about his physique in Sultan, the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor said, “Audiences will see me in double size. My training for Sultan has started; so I need to get bigger and fitter for the role,”

Salman admitted this during the Bigg Boss 9 press conference that was held last week and said that his body has been experiencing aches because of the new fitness regime that he has been training himself in. A few days ago he was quoted saying, “In ‘Sultan’, I am a wrestler who goes into MMA (Mixed Martial Arts). It’s a different league of fitness. I have been training for the past five days and my head, back and knee are hurting. Everything is hurting, actually.”
