Guess who is to star opposite Salman Khan in Sultan?
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan‘s upcoming film Sultan was having trouble, finding female lead to star opposite the Dabagg Khan. After a number of names like Anushka Sharma, Deepika Padukone doing the rounds, Kangana Ranaut confirmed that it was she who has been signed opposite the ‘Kick‘ actor. Later the Queen actress backed out of the project citing date issues.
Now it seems that the makers have confirmed of signing another chirpy actress opposite Salman Khan in Sultan. The actress being none other than the ‘Isahqzaade’ star Parineeti Chopra. It seems that Priyanka Chopra‘s cousin has bagged the coveted role opposite Salman Khan now.
Sources said, “Pari’s always been a YRF favourite; the choice was not surprising. Aditya (Chopra)was angry with Kangana for talking about the film. He immediately called her up and got her on board. Obviously, Pari won’t say no to her mentor!”
Sources added that, Deepika and Anushka were never approached for the role. Parineeti who like playing a strong character on screen, would have never signed , had her role not been meaty. Like Salman, the leading Heroine is also a wrestler in the film. Sultan is not about glorifying Salman. So it was not too difficult to get Parineeti say yes.”
Parineeti Chopra has already started gearing up for the role by training hard to get the nuances of a wrestler right.
