Anushka Sharma, who recently posted a photo from the sets of "Sultan", will soon start shooting for romantic scenes with Salman Khan. The team of "Sultan" has already started shooting the third schedule of the film in Mumbai.

The third schedule of Ali Abbas Zafar's directorial "Sultan" commenced in YRF and ND studios on 25 January, and the lead actors will soon shoot for romantic scenes, according to Koimoi.com.

Anushka will be seen playing the role of a wrestler in the film, and will essay a character slightly older than her age. The actress has already started preparing for her de-glam look to appear more realistic in the film.

"Since she is also playing a wrestler in Sultan, her look will be more realistic or de-glam throughout the film. She doesn't need to look like a million bucks," a source told DNA.

Meanwhile, after shooting the romantic sequences the team, including Salman, Anushka and Randeep Hooda , will head to Ludhiana in Punjab for a month-long shoot. According to Hindustan Times, the shooting is expected to take place in the Kila Raipur village and Gujjarwal village. Interestingly, Gujjarwal village is the same place where Aamir Khan's "Dangal" has been shot.

The daily, quoting a source from Yash Raj Films, further said Salman, Anushka and other team members will stay there for a month and a lot of security will be deployed.

"Sultan", directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, features Salman and Anushka as wrestlers, while Randeep Hooda is playing the role of Salman's coach and Amit Sadh will be seen essaying the role of a younger Salman. The film is slated to release during Eid this year, and is expected to clash with Shah Rukh Khan's "Raees".
