Salman Khan took to Twitter to share the first look of his upcoming action drama, Sultan, in which he will be seen portraying three-time Haryana state wrestling champion Sultan Ali Khan.
The first look features Salman Khan in an intense, bulked-up avatar, with a handlebar mustache and short hair. Khan's new look reminds us of the actor's iconic look in Tere Naam (2003) as Sultan marks his first major physical transformation since then.
Sultan is one of the few films for which Salman Khan has decided to undergo training in action and the actor has gone on record to say that Sultan will be his most challenging role till date. Stuntman Larnell Stovall, of the Hunger Games fame, is in India to conduct wrestling workshops for Salman Khan. Khan will train in wrestling and mixed martial arts with Stovall in Mumbai, before he sets out to shoot for Sultan in November.
