It looks like that movie goers very soon can see the much anticipated on screen chemistry between Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone. Rumor has it that they will work together in Yash Raj Films’ “Sultan” that will be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar.
Shooting of this film was reportedly slated to go on floors this year as it was aiming to release during Eid 2016, but due to Salman’s packed schedule for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and Bajrangi Bhaijaan the shooting was pushed further.
A lot of rumors were created regarding the casting of the female lead role of the film. It is speculated that Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma were approached for the same role before Deepika Padukone. It was also reported that Deepika repeatedly turned down the offer as she was pretty close to Shah Rukh Khan. However, she denied the rumor saying she would love to work with him.
Other reports claimed that the “Kick” star was so impressed with the script that he without any delay agreed to do this sports based film.
