After getting into the idealistic world of Sooraj Barjatya and playing the simpleton Prem Dilwala in ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, Salman Khan is all set to wrestle it out on the ground in Yash Raj Films’ ‘Sultan’. The film, which is being directed by Ali Abbas Zafar has the star playing the role of a 40 year old wrestler from Haryana. As the character is earthy and is based in the heartland of Haryana, the actor will have to master the Haryanvi dialect to give the character the authenticity it requires.
Helping him in this task is actor Rahul Bagga, who will be training the actor in getting the dialect right. Rahul Bagga, last seen in films like ‘Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho’ and ‘Tera Mera Tedha Medha’, was a part of two television shows produced by the Yash Raj Films in the past. The film will mark his comeback to the banner.
Bagga, who grew up in Delhi and is well versed with the Haryanvi dialect, was considered to be the right person to coach the actor. According to sources, the actor has been asked to refrain from taking up any assignment during this period as the makers want him to channelize all his energies towards training Salman Khan for the film. Rahul is expected to join the team when the shoot commences towards the end of November.
