Sultan has triggered a new love affair in Salman Khan’s life, an enduring one with the state of Uttar Pradesh, which promises to be extremely productive and rewarding — so much so, that Salman intends to return to shoot his next film in the state.
Says a source from the core crew of Sultan, “Salman had a ball while shooting in and around Muzaffarnagar in UP. He was told it would be tough to control the fans, and it was. But the security bandobast provided by the Akhilesh Yadav government was so tight and foolproof that not one untoward incident happened.”
The source says Salman interacted freely and generously with all his fans. “There were people thronging on location from not just in and around Muzaffarnagar but all across Uttar Pradesh. Salman met them and let them take pictures.”
With this, director Ali Abbas Zafar has nearly completed the shooting of Sultan. “There are only 12 days of shooting left. Ali thought the UP schedule would take longer. But it was all smooth sailing. We must say the state government and district police made it very efficient,” says the source.
