Anushka Sharma was finalized as the leading lady of superstar Salman Khan starrer “Sultan”. Anushka has not only gained added admiration of her fans, it seems that she has won over Bhaijaan too! The report says that Salman was impressed with Anushka’s dedication and the ease with which she managed to pull off wrestling moves regardless of shoulder injury and insufficient rehearsal time. Apparently he expressed his happiness to Aditya Chopra on his choice to cast her as the female lead in “Sultan.”
Salman told reporters here when asked about his experience of working with the ‘PK’ actress. This will be the first time Salman and Anushka will be seen sharing screen space together. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, “Sultan” will see Salman Khan in the role of a wrestler, and he has also gained weight for his character. Even Anushka has undergone rigorous training for six weeks for her role as a wrestler in “Sultan”.
On-set injuries are part and parcel of an actor’s life. On one hand, if they are pampered by the filmmakers, they are even subjected to on-set accidents and injuries and one such incident comes straight from the sets of ‘Sultan’ where reportedly, Anushka Sharma had a shoulder injury while shooting for an action sequence. We told you earlier that neither Salman nor Anushka are leaving any stone unturned for the film and Anushka seems to be taking her role a tad too seriously. Asked about the shoot, Khan said: “A lot of hard work involved…one of the most difficult till now.” The film, produced by Aditya Chopra under the Yash Raj Films banner, the film is set to release in India on July 8.
Salman Khan Says:
“She is good. It’s good to work with people, especially with talented people,”
With so much passion and dedication going into her role, we are sure Anushka Sharma performance would be one to watch out for in Salman Khan starring “Sultan”
