Mumbai: The latest buzz around town is that Salman Khan is now keen have his good friend Sanjay Dutt to play a part in ‘Sultan’. According to reports the actor even approached YRF bosses to convince Dutt to hop on board. Sanjay is currently serving the last few months of his sentence in the Yerwada jail in Pune, and is expected to be out in Februrary 2016.
While Salman is busy training four-hours a day, to get into character, the film’s director Ali Abbas Zafar is scouting for locations across the country. As shooting will only begin in a month’s time, Sanjay could join the cast after his release next year.
It was recently reported that Salman was eager to work with Hollywood action star Sylvester Stallon in a film. Rumours had it that Sylvester would play Sultan’s coach or the man who helps him get back in the ring after an unfortunate situation. However, those reports were rubbished early this week.
With Sly out of the picture, we wonder if Sanju is now in the running to play the same character. We have seen the actor fight it out in the ring before the movie 'Blue', in which he starred opposite Akshay Kumar.
Salman and Sanjay have worked together in the film ‘Chal Mere Bhai’ and have even co-hosted the fifth season of ‘Bigg Boss 5’. Seeing the two together one more time would surely be interesting.
