One of the most anticipated films of 2016, Salman Khan-starrer Sultan will have the actor playing a professional wrestler and we hear the makers will recreate some major events from sports history for the film. The 2010 Asian Games in China, 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, 2012 Olympics in London and 2013 Wrestling World Championships in Hungary will be re-enacted.
Says a source, “The film’s plot features real sports tournaments that have a critical influence on its characters. To build authenticity and add credibility, immaculate efforts have been taken by the makers to recreate major sports events.”
Ali Abbas Zafar director of Sultan confirms the news and says, “You can say we have put in enough time for research of the sport. We met real life wrestlers and then incorporated that in the script; travelled extensively through Haryana and Delhi for two months and toured the akhadas (wrestling hubs) as part of our research.
