According to a recent buzz, Randeep Hooda has been signed to play Salman Khan’s wrestling coach in Sultan. The superstar shares a good rapport with his Kick co-star, Randeep, and Salman was the one who suggested his name for the role.
A source revealed, “Director Ali Abbas Zafar was searching for someone to play Salman’s wrestling coach. The role needed someone tall with a good physique and persona. It’s a meaty role. Salman felt that Randeep fit the bill, so he recommended his name. The team then approached Randeep and he agreed to come on board.”
“Salman is fond of Randeep as he is known to be blunt and has quirky way of talking. Randeep in turn has always found it very inspiring to work with Salman and loves him like an elder brother,” the source added.
At present, Randeep has lost 20kgs for his upcoming film Sarabjit. Once he completes his shooting, the actor will need to bulk up for Sultan as well as take wrestling lessons. It will surely be interesting to watch the Haryanvi hunk as a wrestling coach!
