“Here I’m busy shooting and I read that my next film is ‘Sultan’! News to me guys..sorry to disappoint… I am always supposedly doing more films than the ones I am actually committed to doing! Strange,” Anushka tweeted on Friday.
“Sultan”, produced by Aditya Chopra under his Yash Raj Films banner, is reportedly based on the life of a wrestler. While the “Dabangg” star will be seen in the lead role, his leading lady in the film is yet to be announced. Anushka’s name is said to have come up after Parineeti Chopra reportedly walked out of the movie.
The film’s shooting is scheduled to commence in November, and its release date has been fixed for the auspicious occasion of Eid in 2016.
Meanwhile, “Sultan” director Ali Abbas Zafar is in Los Angeles to work “set the action” for the movie with Larnell Stovall, an international fight choreographer.
