This "Sultan" leading lady guessing game is getting interesting by the day. Earlier, there were Bollywood A-listers contending for the role, but the scenario seems to have changed slightly now.

After Mandana Karimi, "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8" contestant Scarlet Wilson's name is being associated with the film. Her interaction with Salman Khan at a popular award show has sparked rumours of the Brit import wanting to land a role in "Sultan".

Apparently, the 49-year-old's vanity van had tight security despite which he hopped off it to talk to Scarlet.

"Security around Salman's van was tight but the actor stepped out of his van to talk to her and the duo seemed to have an intense conversation for around 20 minutes. After that Salman excused himself and headed to Alia Bhatt's van to catch up with her. Considering the timing, and that the Sultan casting is on, one can only wonder if Scarlett was trying her luck for a role in the film," The Asian Age quoted a source as saying.

There are numerous gossips around Salman's next. From Deepika Padukone to Parineeti Chopra, big names have been attached to the upcoming action-drama.

However, both the actresses have denied reports saying they were never approached for the film. While Parineeti announced it on Twitter, Deepika recently opened up about the gossip.

Interestingly, there have been conjectures that Parineeti's fitness photo shoot, in which she's looking fight-ready and fierce, was nothing but an effort to crack "Sultan" auditions.
