Finally the cat is out of the bag! After the names of several B-town leading ladies doing rounds, the makers zeroed down on Anushka Sharma to play Salman Khan's heroine in 'Sultan'.
After playing varied roles in the past we hear that Anushka Sharma will be essaying the role of a wrestler in this flick. As per a DNA report a source close to the production house was quoted as saying, "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. 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.”
We further hear that the actress will start shooting for the film after three week post her extensive training sessions. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar 'Sultan' will release on Eid 2016.
