After last year's Eid’s heartwarming "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" act, this festive season Salman pushes himself physically and emotionally to a new level of commitment in "Sultan". Playing the good hearted solidly dependable Haryanvi wrestler Salman brings a kind of feisty vulnerability along with a spiritual certainty to his instantly likeable character. He is no longer interested in being Salman Khan on screen. The physical and emotional transformation is so palpable and authentic as to remind us of what Robert de Niro achieved in and outside the boxing ring in Martin Scorcese's "Raging Bull".
