The Ali Abbas Zafar-directed Sultan stars Salman Khan as a Haryanvi wrestler. Several actresses, including Parineeti Chopra and Kriti Sanon, were reported to have been approached for the film. However, Yash Raj Films announced on January 9 that Anushka had been signed. She made her debut in Bollywood with Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi
"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 wrote on Twitter. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Sultan, which has been shot in Karjat, is based on the life of a wrestler, played by Salman Khan
"Even I read about me doing Sultan in newspapers. I don't really know where it comes from and who gets to know all this"
