‘Sultan’ poster: Anushka Sharma shows off her wrestling prowess

The makers of much-anticipated film ‘Sultan’ have unveiled the look of Anushka Sharma in a new poster. The actress plays Haryanvi wrestler Aarfa in the Yash Raj Films production. The first poster and teaser featured only Salman Khan who plays the titular role of wrestler Sultan Ali Khan Cheema.

Anushka took to Twitter to release the poster featuring her by posting, “Here’s presenting #AARFA @SultanTheMovie.”

The poster says ‘Introducing Aarfa’ and has a fierce looking Anushka giving a ‘dhobi pachad’ to her male opponent pinning him down in the ‘akhara’. The actress does come across at a rough and tough ‘Haryana Ki Sherni’.

Anushka was finalised for the role long after the movie went on floors. The ‘Band Baaja Baarat’ actress has undergone extensive training to master the ‘dhobi pachad’ tactic. She trained with a team of wrestlers who were specially brought down from Delhi for a six-week period. They helped her get into the skin of her character.

Anushka has reportedly completed shooting her portions in the movie and is currently busy with Karan Johar’s directorial ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and her production ‘Phillauri’. The remaining portion of ‘Sultan’ is currently being shot in a village in Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar.

Also starring Randeep Hooda, the movie directed by Ali Abbas Zafar is scheduled to release on the occasion of Eid this year.
