Makers of Salman Khan's "Sultan" have released the first look of the film. The first look of Salman Khan in "Sultan" shows the superstar donning a tough look with a moustache and light beard.

Salman, who will be seen as a wrestler from Haryana in the movie, shared the first look on Twitter. The picture was apparently taken while he was training for the role.

The first look poster also has an interesting quote, "Wrestling is not a sport, it's about fighting what lies within."

Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, "Sultan" has been produced by Yash Raj Films and is one of the most awaited flicks. Some time ago, the makers of the movie released a teaser video in which a wrestling commentary was heard from the background.

Recently, Aamir Khan's first look in "Dangal" was released, which is also based on the life of a wrestler. Now, with the release of the first look of Salman's "Sultan", comparisons are bound to be made between the two films' first look posters.

Although there is no confirmed report on the full cast of "Sultan", the latest buzz suggests that Parineeti Chopra will be seen opposite the superstar.

The film is slated to be released next year during Eid and is supposed to clash with Shah Rukh Khan's "Raees" at the box office.
