Salman Khan and Kabir Khan are known to share a special bond, beyond their professional equation. And as the director has given the superstar two unforgettable films, he trusts him a lot.

A Bollywood Life source reported that the filmmaker was on the sets of "Sultan" monitoring some of the action scenes of the film. He also pitched some of his valuable inputs and helped the makers with the sequence. Apparently, it was the actor's idea to have him around.

Also, a group of Palestinian theatre artistes were there to meet the superstar. They even presented Salman with a Keffiyeh. "With Kabir's help, these actors managed to meet him at a five star hotel on Tuesday afternoon, where the latter was shooting for his forthcoming wrestler film. Salman was extremely courteous and showed keen interest in their play while the group gifted him a Keffiyeh (a traditional Palestinian cotton scarf worn by men for ceremonial purposes) which reminded the actor of his look from Kabir's Ek Tha Tiger," the insider told the web portal.

Meanwhile, the hunt for the leading lady is still on because it is being reported that the film doesn't need one until the end of January. "Bigg Boss 9" contestant Mandana Karimi, "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8" participant Scarlet Wilson and a few other names have so far been associated with the action drama. Slated for an Eid release, this Abbas Ali Zafar directorial may clash with Shah Rukh Khan's "Raees".
