The two Khans will be seen as wrestlers in their respective films. There were reports that after watching the trailer of Sultan, Aamir felt Dangal would suffer.
“Aamir is scared? He is doing Dangal and he is scared! Then why did he do Dangal? Why would Aamir be scared (of Sultan),” said Salman .“My film is different than his. Both of us knew that the two films are about wrestling.
In that case, does it mean that if Shah Rukh Khan is doing a love story then I won’t do it? I have heard Aamir’s (film) script and it is outstanding,” the 50-year-old actor said. While Sultan centres around the life of a wrestler Sultan Ali Khan, Dangal is the biopic of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat (Aamir), who taught the sport to his daughters Babita Kumari and Geeta.
The Dabangg star joked that if given a choice, he would have done Dangal as well.“I would have done both the films. It would be Sultan first and then Sultan’s Dangal,” he said in a lighter vein.
Sultan, produced by Aditya Chopra, will arrive in theatres next month during Eid, while Dangal is set to release in December this year.
