Sultan is a story of Sultan Ali Khan (Salman Khan) – a local wrestling champion with the world at his feet as he dreams of representing India at the Olympics. It’s a story of Aarfa (Anushka Sharma) – a feisty young girl from the same small town as Sultan, with her own set of dreams. When the 2 local wrestling legends lock horns, romance blossoms and their dreams and aspirations become intertwined and aligned.
However, the path to glory is a rocky one and one must fall several times before one stands victorious. More often than not, this journey can take a lifetime. Sultan is a classic underdog tale about a wrestler’s journey, looking for a comeback by defeating all odds stacked up against him. But when he has nothing to lose and everything to gain in this fight for his life match… Sultan must literally fight for his life. Sultan believes he’s got what it takes… but this time, it’s going to take everything he’s got. “Wrestling is not a sport, it’s about fighting what lies within” – SULTAN.
