Ali Abbas Zafar's "Sultan" is one of the most-awaited films, and one of the reasons is its lead actor Salman Khan. The actor will be seen as a wrestler in "Sultan" and according to his co-star, this is one of Salman's finest performances.

Actor Amit Sadh, who plays the role of younger Salman in "Sultan," said that meeting Bollywood's superstar was a life changing experience for him. Amit also said that Salman is "phenomenal" in the movie.

"Meeting him was life changing; working with him was life changing. He is phenomenal. With Sultan, a new Salman will emerge," Amit told the Press Trust of India in an interview. "The shooting is coming along great. I am not allowed to talk about my role yet. But I am playing something good in the film."

Talking about Salman, Amit said that the actor is one of the most amazing human beings. "Not just Salman Sir is a superstar, he's one of the amazing human beings I've ever met. Just heard so much about him, but now that I'm seeing him so closely and i am in completely awe of him. So when i am not giving a shot i just look at him," Amit told Bollywood Hungama.

This is the first time Amit is working with Salman in a movie. Apart from Amit, the film also features Anushka Sharma and Randeep Hooda. While Anushka plays the role of a wrestler, Randeep will reportedly be seen as Salman's coach.

"Sultan," directed by Ali and produced under Yash Raj Films banner, is slated for Eid 2016 release. The Salman-starrer will clash with Shah Rukh Khan's "Raees" at the box office this year.
