Reacting to comparisons between his upcoming film Sultan and Aamir Khan’s next Dangal, Bollywood star Salman Khan said he would have done both films if he were given a chance. “I would have done both the films. It would be Sultan first and then Sultan’s Dangal,” he said jokingly.
Both Aamir and Salman 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 reacting to the reports.
The Ali Abbas Zafar-directed film Sultan centres around the life of a wrestler Sultan Ali Khan while Dangal is the biopic of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat (Aamir), who taught the sport to his daughters Babita Kumari and Geeta.

The 50-year-old actor, however, said, “My film is different from 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.”
Sultan, produced by Aditya Chopra, will arrive in theatres next month during Eid, while Dangal is set to release in December this year.
