What's more exciting about Sultan is the fact that Salman Khan will be essaying the role of a wrestler and also his never seen before look! A drastic change has been made to Salman in order to have the look of a wrestler for this movie.
Now with Salman on board, the search for the rest of the cast was on! Salman apparently likes to work with people he is comfortable withsince he was fond of Randeep Hooda and liked his work in Kick, Salman has got the actor cast in Sultan as his coach.
A source told DNA, "Director Ali Abbas Zafar was searching for someone to play Salman's wrestling coach. The role needed someone tall with a good physique and persona. It's a meaty role. Salman felt that Randeep fit the bill, so he recommended his name. The team then approached Randeep and he agreed to come on board."
The source added that Randeep's family too is close to Salman, "Salman is fond of Randeep as he is known to be blunt and has a quirky way of talking. Randeep in turn has always found it very inspiring to work with and loves him like an elder brother."
