The trailer of Salman Khan's "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" has been creating huge buzz, garnering over two million hits within 48 hours. While fans eagerly wait for the film to get released, Salman is gearing up to start shooting for his next project.

According to a report in Box Office India, Salman will soon start shooting for Yash Raj Films' "Sultan", which will be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar.

In "Sultan", Salman plays a 40-year-old boxer and is said to undergo strict physical regime. However, it seems that the superstar isn't sure as to how to get into the tough role of a boxer with his packed schedule.

"...It'd entail many months of a strict exercise regime and a new diet control so he can acquire a boxer's body. With his heavy commitments, Salman is not sure how he will be able to give Sultan the time attention and single-minded focus it requires," a source had earlier told DNA.

Recent rumours suggest that Kangana Ranaut has been approached to play the lead female role, reported Pink Villa. If Kangana gives her nod to the film, it would be interesting to see Salman and the "Queen" actress coming together on screen.

Meanwhile, Kangana is riding high with the stupendous success of her latest release "Tanu Weds Manu Returns" that has entered ₹100 crore club within a week.
