Shahrukh Khan’s cameo in Salman Khan’s ‘Sultan’ dropped


There was a report that Shah Rukh Khan might make a cameo appearance in his Salman Khan’s upcoming film ‘Sultan’. However, it is now learnt that the makers have decided against it.

In April, Shah Rukh had dropped in on the sets of ‘Sultan’ to meet Salman and Farah Khan who was choreographing a song for the film. When he was on the set, they recorded bits of the actors interacting, possibly for the making of the film.

Later, the ‘Sultan’ team decided to incorporate those bits in the film. “There’s a scene in Sultan, which requires a celebrity to meet Salman. The team came up with the idea to include SRK’s footage for that scene,” a source was quoted as saying then.

Shah Rukh’s cameo was put on hold as the makers were waiting for the ‘Dilwale’ actor’s approval. Now it is said that the makers have decided not to include the footage in the film. The whole cameo has been dissolved as producer Aditya Chopra has decided against it, according to a report in DNA.

It was also reported that filmmakers Kabir Khan and Vijay Krishna Acharya aka Victor of ‘Dhoom’ fame, will also appear in ‘Sultan’. The duo will be seen directing Salman’s character wrestler Sultan Ali Khan in commercials, in the film.  

Starring Anushka Sharma, the movie directed by Ali Abbas Zafar is slated to hit screens in July on the occasion of Eid this year.
