Superstar Salman Khan, who had put on weight for his role of a wrestler in his last outing Sultan, says the physical transformation from fat-to-fit was a painful experience.

In the film, Salman’s character Sultan was seen ageing from a young Haryana wrestler to an older man, for which he had to gain several kilos.

“There is a lot of pain in undergoing physical transformation. I have been training for Tiger Zinda Hai and there is another film that I am training - it’s a dance film (referring to Remo D’Souza film). For Sultan, I was 96 kgs. I have shed 18-20 kgs,” Salman told reporters here last night.
