When director Ali Abbas Zafar wanted to film the inspiring life story of wrestler Sultan Ali Khan, the Bollywood macho Salman Khan was the ideal choice for the lead role. When it comes to the role of ‘Aarfa’, the love interest of Sultan who is also a wrestler, Abbas was a bit worried if Anushka Sharma can pull out Muscles within the given time.
Being a vegetarian, it indeed was difficult to gain all the calories through high-protein diet for muscle toning. But she took help of three different trainers to achieve perfection. One trainer teaches her wrestling. Second trainer is for her strength training and the third one is a physiotherapist who helps her to relax her muscles.
‘To be honest, I was a little concerned on how much would she be able to manage in just six weeks. But I have faith in Anushka’s complete commitment to her work. She has coped with a tough training schedule without a break with no complaints. As the female wrestler on set, armed with an accurate accent, Anushka bowled me over.’ Said the director applauding the heroine’s commitment.
The film is all set to release on 6th July as Eid gift to Salman Fans.
