Anushka starts training for her de-glam role of a wrestler in Sultan
Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma has said she is excited to work in the upcoming film Sultan as her role in the Salman Khan-starrer is something that she is eagerly waiting to “dig my teeth into”.
“I am training to be working with Salman (in Sultan). I am really excited about the film and my role,” the actress said on the sidelines of Britannia Filmfare Awards, held over the weekend. Reports said that the NH10 star is set to play a wrestler in the film.
A DNA report claimed that Anushka will sport a “realistic and de-glam” look for Sultan. An international prosthetics expert, who will be working on Salman’s character, will also help create Anushka’s definite look.
“The role is something that I am just waiting to dig my teeth into,” she added. The 27-year-old, who has also worked with Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan in the past, is all praise for the Dabangg star. “There is nobody like him because of his persona,” she said.
Speaking about the pairing, director Abbas Ali Zafar told DNA, “We wanted to cast a great actor opposite Salman. That was the main criterion. Anushka is a terrific actress and a star in her own right. She can pull off a film effortlessly. But the biggest plus point is that she is athletic, she understands the language and the mannerisms and it will be easy for her to get into the skin of the character. Also, she has previously romanced Shah Rukh and Aamir Khan. Now, it’s Salman. They look great together. Once the look is out, you will see.”
Produced by Aditya Chopra, Sultan is slated to release on Eid this year.
