A media report suggested that Kriti was apprehensive about signing Sultan as then she would have to sign up as a Yash Raj Films talent.
However, Kriti tweeted:
I'd like to clarify again that I have not been offered Sultan. So the question of YRF putting any conditions doesn't arise.— Kriti Sanon (@kritisanon) December 24, 2015
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Sultan, which has been shot in Karjat, is based on the life of a wrestler, played by Salman. (Also Read: Revealed: The Actor Who Will Play Salman Khan Junior in Sultan)
