Ali Abbas Zafar says he couldn’t believe it when Salman agreed to do Sultan with him.

“I went to him for a narration. He heard me for 30 minutes and said it sounded good. After that everything fell into place. It’s a sporty formula we’ve seen work so well in Raging Bull and the Rocky series. That’s the feeling we’ve tried  to create in Sultan.”

Speaking of his fondness for a wrestling film Ali reveals, “I love outdoor sports. Wrestling is very Indian. And unlike boxing it’s not about hurting your opponent. It’s not bloodied sport. It’s about felling your opponent through technique.”

Salman was all there for the part, and with reason. Ali reveals, “You see, Salman’s family is no stranger to wrestling. Some of Salim saab’s cousins  in his hometown Indore were wrestlers. As a child, Salman watched them in the akhada. So he knows the wrestlers’ moves.”

Ali brightens up at the mention of Salman’s family. “For the entire shooting spell of Sultan Salim saab and Salman’s family adopted me as one of their own. I could come and go as and how I wanted in their home. Salman is like an elder brother. He guided me.”
