The Yash Raj Films' movie has been in news for quite some time due to the suspense over the casting of its leading lady. Besides Anushka, the names of Parineeti Chopra, Kriti Sanon, Kangana Ranaut and Deepika Padukone have also cropped up.
Sultan stars Salman, 49, as a wrestler from Haryana. The film will clash with actor Shah Rukh Khan's Raees at the box office next year on Eid.
