Several actresses were attached to the project since the film was announced last year but the movie finally went to Anushka.
When asked about his experience of working with 27-year-old Anushka, Salman said as quoted by Indian Express, “It has been great. It feels good to work with good and talented people.”
The movie will see Salman playing Sultan Ali Khan, a Haryana-based wrestler.
The 50-year-old actor called this YRF banner project one of the most difficult movies of his career.
“I am working very hard. It is one of my most difficult movies,” said the actor on the sidelines of the Times of India Film Awards (TOIFA).
Sultan is all set to release on Eid 2016.
