Will Salman Khan become the Sultan of box office yet again? As the actor’s wrestling drama releases Wednesday a day before Eid, trade analysts are already talking about Rs 250-crore weekend. While fans are eargerly waiting to see Salman Khan in one of the most-anticipated films of the year, here are five reasons why you should go and watch the movie in theatres this festive season.
Bhai or Dabangg Khan is undoubtedly the biggest reason to watch Sutan. Salman Khan will be seen in a never-seen-before avatar of an ageing wrestler Sultan Ali Khan. He has worked really hard to look his part and had undergone rigorous training, imncluding learning various wrestling techniques for the film. His buffed-up and moustached look has already made his fans weak in the knees. And as usual, Salman is releasing Sultan around Eid, which is the actor’s lucky charm. All his movies that released on Eid have been super hits and entered the coveted Rs 100 crore club.
The NH10 actress will also be playing a wrestler for the first time on screen. After working with Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and PK respectively, Anushka is all set to share the screen space with Bollywood’s third Khan in Sultan. She will also be seen pinning down her opponents in the akhada (wrestling ring). The actress has also mastered the Haryanvi dialect for her role of Aarfa in the movie.
Salman- Anushka chemistry:
Salman and Anushka are coming together for the first time onscreen and from the promos and songs, they surely make one helluva onscreen couple. From flirting with each other to expressing their love with deep emotions, Salman and Anushka’s chemistry looks promising on screen.
The film’s music has already struck the right chord with audience. Composer Vishal-Shekhar has done a brilliant job adding flavours of Haryana to the songs in the form of peppy number like Baby Ko Bass Pasand Hai, 440 Volts and a heartfelt and touching song Jag Ghoomeya. The songs are already topping the charts.
