Forget wrestling, here’s what actually connects Salman Khan’s ‘Sultan’ and Aamir Khan’s ‘Dangal’

While people thought that wrestling is the only connecting link between Sultan and Dangal, here’s something else that connects both the films..


Aamir Khan’s Dangal and Salman Khan’sSultan have been in news for being creatively similar- be it the concept or the backdrop. Both the films revolve around wrestling. While Dangal is a biopic on wrestler Mahavir Phogat’s life, Sultan is a rather fictional take on the sport. But while the entire country thinks wrestling is the only connecting link between the two films, there’s something else that connects the two films.

What? So here it goes. Aamir Khan will be seen in two distinctive looks for Dangal– one where he’s gone bulky and is 90 kilos as the 50 year olf father of two and the other where he will be a lot leaner, with perfectly sculpted body as the 18 year old wrestler. The actor has been training really hard to achieve the look and guess who’s helping him? Salman’s trainer!

Salman made the interesting revelation at a recently held launch event. When asked if he’s concerned about Aamir’s health given that Mr Perfectionist has gained over Rs 25 kilos for the role, Salman immediately responded, “Aamir will pull it off really well… (Pauses) He’s got my personal trainer training him for Dangal.”

Now the cat is out of the bag and we are quite sure that now, you will know that wrestling isn’t just the connecting link between Dangal and Sultan.
