The wait is finally over. Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s movie Sultan’s trailer has been released. The upcoming much-anticipated movie has the actor playing a wrestler and also stars Bollywood diva Anushka Sharma in the leading role. The movie trailer shows all the lead protagonists in the movie including Salman Khan, Anushka Sharma, who plays a wrestler herself and his love interest, Randeep Hooda who plays Salman Khan’s coach in the movie and Amit Sadh who plays the younger version of Salman in the storyline.
Salman Khan plays a wrestler from a small town in Haryana Sultan Ali Khan, who fights against professional and personal issues in his life to win glory at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, the 2011 FILA Wrestling World Championships in Istanbul and the 2012 London Olympics. He is then seen returning to wrestling out of shape years later under the coaching of Randeep Hooda’s character. The story seems to narrate the rise and fall, and then rise of Salman Khan’s character. Sultan Ali Khan is seen re-entering the combat sport arena after a hiatus and switching to mixed martial arts in the trailer.
The movie has an uncanny resemblance to Sylvester Stallone’s last iteration of Rocky Balboa with a dialogue literally translated from the Hollywood movie.
Fans are keeping their fingers crossed waiting eagerly to see how Salman Khan portrays the role of a wrestler from Haryana. Sultan is slated to release on Eid 2016.
