Anushka Sharma denies doing Salman Khan’s ‘Sultan’


Anushka Sharma, who is currently busy shooting for Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ in London refutes doing Salman Khan starrer ‘Sultan’.

"Here I'm busy shooting and I read that my next film is 'Sultan'! News to me guys..sorry to disappoint... I am always supposedly doing more films than the ones I am actually committed to doing! Strange," Anushka tweeted on Friday.

‘Sultan’ is a Yash Raj Production and it is based on the life of a wrestler. Salman Khan has been signed to play the lead role and news buzzed that Anushka Sharma was cast for the female lead. However, Parineeti Chopra was also approached for the film but she opted out.

Kangana Ranaut and Deepika Padukone’s name was also considered for the female lead but nothing has been finalized yet.

The film will supposedly go on floor in November, and its release date has been fixed for the auspicious occasion of Eid in 2016.

Meanwhile, 'Sultan' director Ali Abbas Zafar is in Los Angeles in talk with Larnell Stovall, an international fight choreographer.

In ‘Sultan’, Salman Khan will play a wrestler from Haryana. It will clash with superstar Shahrukh Khan's ‘Raees’ at the box office next year on Eid.
