It is confirmed that Anushka Sharma will be playing the leading lady in Salman Khan starrer Sultan. Yash Raj Films finally made the official announcement after keeping mum on the topic for long.
A source close to the project spoke about what Anushka’s character is going to be like. “It isn’t another typical Salman film. The leading lady has a prominent role. She plays a mature woman — a wrestler. She has to look on par with Salman. For the first time, she will essay a character slightly older than her age and it’s a trademark shift from her girl-next-door kind of roles,” said the source.
The source added, “Since she is also playing a wrestler in Sultan, her look will be more realistic or de-glam throughout the film. She doesn’t need to look like a million bucks.”
“Sultan revolves around four central characters – that of Salman, Anushka, Randeep (Hooda) and Amit (Sadh). After three weeks, she will be undergoing a rigorous training in the sport in the coming three weeks and will join the cast on the sets post that,” confirmed the source.
We hope that gets you excited to watch Salman and Anushka working together for the very first time.
