Actor Salman Khan sees no point comparing Sultan and Aamir Khan’s Dangal despite the similarity in their roles, and is all praises for the script of his friend’s upcoming film.
The two Khans will be seen as wrestlers in their respective films. There were reports that after watching the trailer of Sultan, Aamir felt Dangal would suffer.
“Aamir is scared? He is doing Dangal and he is scared! Then why did he do Dangal? Why would Aamir be scared (of Sultan),” Salman said in an interview here.
“My film is different than his. Both of us knew that the two films are about wrestling. In that case, does it mean that if Shah Rukh Khan is doing a love story then I won’t do it? I have heard Aamir’s (film) script and it is outstanding,” the 50-year-old actor said.
The Ali Abbas Zafar-directed film Sultan centres around the life of a wrestler Sultan Ali Khan.
Dangal is the biopic of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat (Aamir), who taught the sport to his daughters Babita Kumari and Geeta.
Sultan, produced by Aditya Chopra, will arrive in theatres next month during Eid, while Dangal is set to release in December this year.
The Dabangg star joked that if given a choice, he would have done Dangal as well.
“I would have done both the films. It would be Sultan first and then Sultan’s Dangal,” he said in a lighter vein.
Salman revealed that he shared his Sultan trainer with Aamir to help him prepare for Dangal.
“I am a very big hearted man,” he said.
Gossip mills are abuzz that Salman-Aamir starrer 1994 hit comedy Andaz Apna Apna is getting a sequel.
When asked about reuniting with Aamir on the film, Salman said, “I have been dying to work with Aamir for the longest time.”
