Salman Khan will reportedly have as many as three body doubles in the film "Sultan".

Reports suggest "Sultan" will have a number of dangerous action scenes, which will be too risky for Salman, and thus, makers of the film have roped in three body doubles for the superstar.

"There are several dangerous action scenes in the film. Yash Raj doesn't want to compromise on Salman's safety," quoted a source as saying.

Salman will play the role of a wrestler from Haryana in the much-awaited flick. His character's name in the film is Sultan Ali Khan. The actor has been training hard to attain a much bigger and fitter physique.

Apart from intense gymming, Salman is also being trained in martial arts and wrestling tactics. Although the complete cast of "Sultan" is still not confirmed, latest reports suggest Randeep Hooda will play the role of Salman's trainer in the film.

There has also been much speculation in regard to the lead actress of "Sultan". Names of actresses like Deepika Padukone, Parineeti Chopra and Anushka Sharma, among others, have popped up.

Parineeti recently took to Twitter to say she is not a part of the film. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the movie will hit theatres on Eid next year.
