Salman Khan’s wrestling connect

Not many know that superstar Salman Khan, who is all set to portray a wrestler in the upcoming film “Sultan”, has a real life connection with wrestling.

Salman’s relatives, who live in Indore have practiced wrestling for generations. So when it came down to preparing for “Sultan”, his forthcoming wrestling film for Yash Raj Films, the “Dabangg” star’s uncle flew down from Indore to give him tips about the sport, said a source.

Salman enjoyed the discussion and is utilising these tips to master his wrestling skills for the film.

The “Wanted” star, who is excited about his upcoming film, has also distributed special customised hoodies as gifts to everyone on the film’s set.

“Sultan” is said to be based on the life of Sultan Ali Khan, a wrestler who is faced with problems in his professional and personal life. To play the role to the tee, Salman gained weight and underwent rigorous training.

The Ali Abbas Zafar directorial also stars Anushka Sharma as a wrestler. Produced by Aditya Chopra, “Sultan” is slated to release on Eid this year.
