Bollywood superstar Salman Khan's upcoming film, 'Sultan,' has been making news for a long time.

After Aamir Khan's 'wrestling pit' look from his upcoming film 'Dangal', it's time for another wrestling piece from another Khan.

Salman has been training hard for his role and shows a bulked-up body sporting a mustache, stubble and cropped hair.

The curiosity around his leading lady has been killing his fans.

From Deepika Padukone to Parineeti Chopra, a lot of names came our way, but none was finalised.

Despite the fact that the film had gone on floors a while ago and that Salman has already completed the first schedule, there was no clue, whatsoever, about which B-Town beauty would bag this coveted role.

The makers of the movie stayed mum over the lead actress' name.


But now, almost two months after the film has gone on-floors, Yash Raj Films has finally announced the leading lady of the movie and it is none other than Anushka Sharma.
The 'Bombay Velvet' actress has been finalised to play the lead role opposite Salman in Ali Abbas Zafar's film. The official handle of the film tweeted about it.
"Meet Sultan's Leading Lady! #SultanLeadingLady," posted the movie's official handle along with Anushka and Salman's picture.

Anushka also tweeted the picture and wrote: "Sultan".
