Salman Khan’s Sultan, in which he plays the character of a wrestler, was scheduled to shoot in Northern part of India i.e Punjab & Haryana as it known to be a hub of wrestlers. However, recent reports suggest that Khan wants to change the shooting location to Karjat.
The reason behind this change of Location is considered to be his friend-actor Aamir Khan, who is shooting in Punjab & Haryana for ‘Dangal’. Co-incidentally, Aamir too will be playing a wrestler like Salman and to avoid the similar visuals and locatins of the film, the ‘Dabangg‘ actor shifted his shooting location to Karjat.
Another reason to choose Karjat, might also be ‘Bigg Boss 9’, whose set is near Karjat. Since, Salman Khan hosts this reality show, it’ll be convenient for the actor to work on ‘Sultan‘ & ‘Bigg Boss 9’ simultaneously.
‘Sultan‘, which is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar & produced under the reputed banner of YRF Films is slated to release in EID 2016.
