Salman Khan, who will play the role of a wrestler in the upcoming movie "Sultan", will reportedly have Hollywood superstar Sylvester Stallone as his on-screen trainer in the film.

According to a report in DNA, Yash Raj Productions has already approached Stallone for the role of Salman's trainer in "Sultan" but the "Rocky" actor is yet to make any confirmation.

Stallone had a small appearance in "Kambakkht Ishq" and the report further stated that the actor is unwilling to make any decision in a hurry this time, as he was upset after his role in the Akshay Kumar starrer was reduced.

However, if things go as planned, Stallone will reportedly be seen in a full-fledged role in Salman's "Sultan". His role will be of a trainer who motivates and makes Salman ready to return to the wrestling ring after a long span, according to the report.

There was a buzz that Salman and Stallone will be seen together in an action film, after the duo had a pleasant Twitter interaction and the Hollywood hunk expressed his desire to work with the Bollywood superstar.

Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the movie is one of the most awaited flicks. The buzz of Salman coming together with Stallone will definitely excite the fans even more.

"Sultan" is expected to be released on next year's Eid.  However, there has not been a confirmed report on the movie's full cast as of now.
