Actor Anushka Sharma is happy that her character ‘Arfa’ managed to stand on her own in Sultan despite the larger-than-life persona of superstar Salman Khan. “Getting Salman Khan’s fans to tell you, ‘I am your fan too’ is a big deal because they are the most loyal fans. All the three Khans have such loyal fans. I feel very special.
“I think you want your work to be noticed and appreciated and for it to happen in a film like Sultan and with a megastar like Salman, I feel very happy,” said the actor. The appreciation is more special for Anushka because she considers the Ali Abbas Zafar-directed film her most challenging project ever.
“Sultan has been my most difficult film till now. It was challenging for me physically and emotionally it was tough. I had to understand the emotions and maturity that probably I don’t posses in me right now. Also, learning a sport, changing my body type and waking up early in the morning, going for training and then learning wrestling...
“I was working like a robot. But today when I am getting this kind of appreciation from people I feel grateful. “All the love people are giving me because of the film, is special. I feel all the hard work has paid off.”
