While Salman Khan fans await the trailer of "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", the superstar has started prepping up for his next, "Sultan".

"Sultan" will see Salman playing a 40-year-old Haryani wrestler. The role requires him to undergo strict physical regimen to get into the skin of the character. 

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his twitter handle to update about "Sultan" along with a picture of Salman from his training session. According to the trade analyst, the "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" actor will be trained in mixed martial arts by Hollywood action director Larnell Stovall and team for the next two months. 

Stovall of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" fame, has flown down from Los Angeles to train the actor.

Of late, "Sultan" has been creating a lot of buzz as both the Salman starrer and Shah Rukh Khan's "Raees" are expected to hit screens during Eid 2016. However, both the superstars seem unperturbed by the box office clash.

Meanwhile, the makers are yet to finalise on the lead female actress. While there were rumours that Deepika Padukone, Kangana Ranaut, Parineeti Chopra and Anushka Sharma were approached to play the female lead, according to a report in Bollywood Life, the makers are on a hunt for a newcomer, who will be seen romancing the "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" actor.
