Salman Khan's upcoming movie "Sultan" will not have Parineeti Chopra as the lead, as the actress denied being part of the film.

It was rumoured that Parineeti will play the lead actress in "Sultan". However, she took to Twitter and put down all the rumours to rest.

"Guys, I am not doing Sultan, please put all rumours and speculations to rest and let me announce my next film when the time is right," Parineeti tweeted on Sunday.

There has been much speculation regarding the leading lady and the complete cast of "Sultan". Apart from Parineeti, Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma's names were also associated with the movie.

As reported, the lead actress of "Sultan" will also play the role of a wrestler like Salman himself and will have negative shades in the character.

Recently, it has been learned that UFC fighter Tyron Woodley, popularly known as "The Chosen One", will be a part of the Salman-starrer as the two will have a face-off inside the ring.

Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone was also rumoured to be a part of the cast as Salman's wrestling coach. Later, Sanjay Dutt's name popped up for the same role and latest reports suggest that it is Randeep Hooda who will play the part.

Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the movie "Sultan" is slated to be released on Eid, next year.
