Sometime back speculations were rifle that Sanjay Dutt might play Salman Khan's mentor in Ali Abbas Zafar's 'Sultan'. But now we hear that it's not Sanjay but Randeep Hooda who has been roped in to play the role.
As per a DNA report a source was quoted as saying, "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.”
The source further added, "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 and loves him like an elder brother.”
Meanhile Randeep will soon start shooting for Omung Kumar's 'Sarbjit' which also stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Darshan Kumar.
