Wrestling seems like the flavor of the season. Salman Khan released the poster for his upcoming mega-movie "Sultan," and the day after that he unleashed a slickly edited teaser trailer showing a sweaty, bulky, muscular wrestler (Salman Khan) in briefs emerging out of a dust cloud with chants of his name reverberating in the background. Yes, this brief teaser has Salman Khan wearing wrestling briefs — it's the chosen attire for desi wrestlers unlike the wrestling singlet preferred by his western counterparts.
He shared the "Sultan" movie poster on Twitter.
Shar Rukh Khan's "Fan" releases April 15, but he took the time out to compliment the star on the teaser.
Besides Salman Khan, Anushka Sharma will also be seen in the film. As per the writer-director of "Sultan," Ali Abbas Zafar, apparently Salman Khan has worked extremely hard on his role for the movie; he trained with international fight choreographer Larnell Stovall for over two months with his training hours exceeding four hours a day. He also took special lessons to work on his Haryanvi accent, as the story is based on the life of a wrestler from the north Indian state of Haryana.
The movie is slated to release around Eid, and we can hardly wait to watch it.
