Salman Khan, now 50, but fit as ever stars as Sultan Ali Khan, a wrestler from a small Haryana town in this Yash Raj production. Sultan falls in love with a female wrestler named Aarfa, played by Anushka Sharma. He faces some problems in his professional and personal life and due to circumstances, they part ways. A heartbroken Sultan becomes involved in things that hurt his career. He gives up wrestling only to return to the sport years later. His age and an unfit body are obstacles he must overcome. Randeep Hooda plays his coach. The story revolves around Sultan’s downfall and how he makes a comeback. In a quote from the trailer, he says, “Wrestling is not a sport. It's about fighting what lies within.” Sultan eventually turns out to win gold for his country at the Olympics. Reportedly, Khan trained extensively for this role and most of the fight scenes in the film are real. Sharma also worked with professional wrestlers to achieve the right look. After the success of “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” last year, Khan seems to have another blockbuster on his hands. The songs by Vishal-Shekhar will be topping the charts.
