Anushka took wrestling training for ‘Sultan’

Anushka Sharma has undergone rigorous training for six weeks for her role as a wrestler in “Sultan”. The film’s director Ali Abbas Zafar is impressed with her dedication.

Anushka practiced for long periods regularly and tenaciously followed a fitness regimen to live the part of a wrestler to the best of her ability, said a source from the set.

The film also stars Bollywood’s “Dabangg” star Salman Khan, who is also in the prep mode for “Sultan”, which is said to be a biopic on a wrestler.

Complimenting Anushka’s efforts, Zafar said in a statement: “Anushka’s dedicated six weeks’ wrestling programme has drastically changed her body language and has also transformed her body into a very authentic looking wrestler.”
