Salman Khan's last super hit film Sultan was a much-appreciated film and Anushka Sharma played the leading lady of the film. But do you know that this film was on hold for at least one year just because of its leading lady?

Here is a list of actresses who got the offer of Sultan:
1. Deepika Padukone - The first actress who was approached for Sultan was Deepika, but she rejected the film.
2. Kangana Ranaut - Well, everyone knows why Kangana rejected this film, she doesn't want to work with any superstar.
3. Parineeti Chopra - The name which made so much noise for this film was Parineeti Chopra, however, Parineeti didn't accept the role.
4. Kriti Sanon – It was rumoured that Kriti also got the offer, but she rejected the film because she didn't want to sign a contract deal with YRF.
5. Katrina Kaif - Even though Katrina Kaif was also approached, but no one from the team wanted to cast her in the film.
6. Mrunal Jain - Television actress Mrunal Jain also gave audition for the film and casting director Shaanoo also suggested losing weight to her but in three months she lost so much weight that she was not looking like a wrestler.
