The makers of "Sultan" have released the much-awaited trailer of the film starring Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma. The superstars play Haryanvi wrestlers, who will be seen fighting as well as romancing each other in the flick.

The trailer was unveiled on IPL 2016 cricket show Extra Innings T20 on May 24. Salman, Anushka and Randeep Hooda appeared on Sony Extra Innings and later, the team headed for a trailer launch event. The movie also features Amit Sadh and Randeep Hooda in pivotal roles.

The teasers of "Sultan" have already raised the curiosity among fans, and they will be delighted to see much more action in the trailer. The first teaser showed Salman's character as Sultan Ali Khan entering the ring in style and slamming down his opponent with sheer power. The second teaser had introduced Anushka's character Aarfa, and shown the actress both as a simple girl doing household chores and also fighting inside the ring.

The trailer gives a better glimpse at Sultan Ali Khan's life and shows how a talented wrestler lost his charm. His struggle to get the honour back at the age of 40 too can be seen. Randeep will be seen as Sultan's coach. However, the story and a few scenes of the trailer looked similar to other sports drama like "Mary Kom" and "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag." But Salman and Anushka's chemistry looked amazing in the much-awaited trailer, which is expected to go viral within a few hours of its release.

Watch the "Sultan" trailer here:

It had been reported that Anushka not only learnt wrestling for this film, but also had to make cow-dung cakes. Apart from wrestling, she will be shown also handling household chores. In one of the scenes, the audience will reportedly see Aarfa (Anushka's character) making cow-dung cakes, which is a common form of household fuel used in rural India.

Scheduled to be released on Eid, the sports drama has been filmed in Uttar Pradesh, New Delhi and Mumbai. Earlier, Shah Rukh Khan's "Raees" was supposed to hit the screens along with "Sultan," but the makers of the SRK-starrer chose to avoid the clash at box office. Thus, the release date of "Raees" has shifted to next year.
