Superstar Salman Khan who is playing a wrestler in the upcoming film Sultan, has also a real life connection with wrestling.
Salman’s relatives, who live in Indore have practiced wrestling for generations. So when it came down to preparing for Sultan, his forthcoming wrestling film for Yash Raj Films, Salman' uncle flew down from Indore to give him tips about the sport, said a source. Salman enjoyed the discussion and is utilising these tips to master his wrestling skills for the film.
Sultan is said to be based on the life of Sultan Ali Khan, a wrestler who is faced with problems in his professional and personal life. To play the role to the tee, Salman gained weight and underwent rigorous training.
The film directed by Ali Abbas Zafar will release on Eid.
