New Delhi: Actor Salman Khan has begun training for his part as a Haryanvi wrestler in director Ali Abbas Zafar's Sultan. He will train in mixed martial arts and wrestling for the next two months, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
It's going to be fairly brutal:

Considering Mr Stovall has movies like The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Falcon Rising to his credit, Salman is in good, if rather tough, hands.
Earlier this month, Ali Abbas Zafar, who last directed Gunday, flew to Los Angeles to start filming Sultan. Meanwhile, composer duo Vishal-Shekhar too have begun work on the soundtrack and have promised "more magic" with the music of Sultan. (Also Read: Vishal-Shekhar Promise 'Magic' with Sultan's Music)

Produced by Yash Raj Films, Sultan is yet to announce its leading actress. The movie opens on Eid next year, when it may or may not clash with Shah Rukh Khan's Raees. (Also Read: 'Sorry to Disappoint,' But Anushka Sharma is Not Doing Sultan)
