When the 2 local wrestling legends lock horns, romance blossoms and their dreams and aspirations become intertwined and aligned.

However, the path to glory is a rocky one and one must fall several times before one stands victorious – More often than not, this journey can take a lifetime. Sultan is a classic underdog tale about a wrestler’s journey, looking for a comeback by defeating all odds staked up against him. But when he has nothing to lose and everything to gain in this fight for his life match… Sultan must fight for his life. Sultan believes he’s got what it takes… but this time, it’s going to take everything he’s got.

About Sultan Movie:

Sultan is a Hindi sports drama film directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and produced by Aditya Chopra under Yash Raj Films. The film stars Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma.

The project was earlier announced in June 2015 with a teaser released on YouTube.

Salman Khan will be seen portraying a Haryana-based wrestler in the film. To prepare for the film, Khan underwent wrestling training under the guidance of Larnell Stovall.

In October 2015, there were reports of American actor Sylvester Stallone being cast in the film as Khan’s on-screen coach. However, Raja Mukerji, the Executive Producer of the film cleared that Stallone would not be starring in the film. Later, Sanjay Dutt was then rumoured to play the role of coach according to Khan’s insistence. However, Khan later reported that he never insisted Aditya Chopra for Dutt’s role.

In December 2015, Randeep Hooda was later signed to play the role of Khan’s coach in the film.

Amit Sadh of Kai Po Che! fame was reportedly signed for the role of young Sultan. However, in March 2016, he confirmed that he is playing the role of Khan’s younger brother.

MMA fighter Tyron Woodley has been signed opposite Khan with other fighters in the film.

In January 2016, Anushka Sharma was signed to play the female lead role opposite Khan. For her role as a wrestler, Sharma took wrestling lessons for the film.

In February 2016, Bosco-Caesar was signed as the choreographer of the film, replacing Vaibhavi Merchant who left the film due to personal commitments.

Pre-production of the film started in October 2015 where Khan posted a photo of his character in the film on Facebook.

Principal photography of the film started in December 2015 at ND Studios, Karjat and JW Marriott Mumbai, where the film’s first schedule was filmed.

Filming of the first schedule had been completed in late December 2015. Filming of the second schedule was started in January 2016 where Khan filmed for action sequences.

A song was filmed in early March 2016, choreographed by Farah Khan.

An action sequence between Khan and Sharma was reportedly filmed. Some of the sequence of the movie will feature 360-year-old Jama Masjid of Delhi.

In late April 2016, the lead actor Salman Khan was seen riding a scooter as a part of shooting in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh.

Sultan was released worldwide on 6 July 2016. It received positive reviews from critics and has grossed ₹623.33 crore ($93 million) worldwide, and is the 10th highest-grossing Indian film ever.

An official game based on this film has been released by 99Games for Android mobile phones.
