“Of course, ‘Sultan‘ is Salman’s film and the person directing it is Ali Abbas Zafar, who is a very close friend of mine. He used to be my first assistant on ‘New York‘, he is like a brother to me. So, I am looking forward to ‘Sultan‘,” Kabir said at the screening of Pan Nalin’s “Angry Indian Goddesses” here.
“The look is very good, I have seen all that has been shot and it’s looking excellent,” he added.
“Sultan” is produced by Yash Raj Films, the production house which gave Kabir the opportunity to evolve from a documentary filmmaker to a commercial filmmaker with “Kabul Express“. He later went on to make two other films, “New York” and “Ek Tha Tiger“.
The first audio teaser of “Sultan” reveals that Salman will be essaying the role of a wrestler.
He is also seen sporting a stubble and a crew cut for the film.
The first look of the film, too, saw him with a handlebar moustache, which had generated enough curiosity among his loyal fans.
“Sultan” will be releasing on Eid next year and the lead actress for the film is yet to be finalised.
