WEB DESK: The makers of Salman Khan starrer “Sultan” have begun shooting for the film, without finalizing the lead actress, reported Mid-day.
The project has generated a lot of hype, especially about who will be the lead actress opposite Salman Khan, who essays the role of a wrestler.
Several hotties such as Parineeti Chopra, Deepika Padukone and Kriti Sanon did the rounds, but no official announcement has been made yet.
A source said, “The fact that the makers have begun shooting without the lead actress is a little scary. The film will release on Eid next year and the casting of all other characters has been done. It’s a huge risk to not have the lead actress on board.”
“The names of a number of actresses floated around, but nothing has been finalised yet. We are still working on it and an announcement will be made soon. We have begun shooting so that we meet our deadline as the release date has already been announced and we do not want to delay the project,” adds a source working on the project.
Another industry source revealed, “Salman is being choosy about who should be cast opposite him in the film and is creatively involved in the whole process. The producers were keen on getting Parineeti on board, but things didn’t work out. Now, a new face might be launched in the project.”
The spokesperson for the film says, “We have begun shooting for ‘Sultan’ and Salman Khan is excited and actively involved with the film. Please wait for the official announcement on the actress.”
Let’s wait and watch who will be the lucky starlet to star opposite Prem Ratan Dhan Payo star.
The film is slated to hit theatres on Eid next year.
