Salman Khan's wrestler avatar in "Sultan" teaser has got everyone talking, but here's another aspect that may add to the excitement. Sources say he will play father to a little girl in the film.
"The young girl isn't playing Anushka's younger version. In fact, Suzy will be seen playing Salman's daughter and has a vital role in the film's climax," an insider informed BollywoodLife. Suzy had the superstar's attention when a video of her crying inconsolably while watching "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" went viral.
From Dubai, the little girl wasn't a part of "Sultan" until Salman insisted that she be roped in for the role.
Salman and the "Sultan" team have wrapped up the Mumbai leg of their shooting schedule and are now in New Delhi where they shoot for a month, after which they will take off to Bulgaria for the final round. The unit is working extra hours to complete the film on time, as Salman will not be available post May as he has reportedly committed to Kabir Khan's film.
"Sultan" is a welcome change from the usual fare Salman has indulged in in the past few years. He plays wrestler Sultan Ali Khan in the action-drama, which is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and also stars Anushka Sharma, Randeep Hooda and Amit Sadh in key roles.
Scheduled for an Eid release, "Sultan" may not be clashing with Shah Rukh Khan's "Raees" after all. Talking to the Press Trust of India, SRK said that it would be logical if one of the two films rescheduled their release dates. "We will try and figure out a way so that it doesn't eat into each other's business. It is awkward. I don't think we would like to have it (box office clash)," he further elaborated.
