Superstar Salman Khan's upcoming film Sultan's first teaser has turned out to be a great success. The film's blockbuster status is confirmed after watching the sports drama teaser. The film is produced by Yash Raj Films and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. This is the second time Salman Khan is doing a film with Yash Raj Films. They had given a blockbuster 'Ek Tha Tiger' previously directed by Kabir Khan. Salman has got interesting strong characters to play under them. Ali Abbas Zafar has directed successful films like 'Meri Brother Ki Dulhan' and 'Gunday'. 'Sultan' has an interesting star cast comprising of Anushka Sharma and Amit Sadh. It will be the first time that we will be watching pairing of Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma. Both play wrestlers in the film.

The teaser shows Salman Khan in a very rustic avatar of wrestler in an akhada. You can see the effort he has put for the character. This is the first time in his career that he has went into so much detailing on his character. He has also learnt Haryanvi accent for the character. At the end of the teaser the character Sultan Ali Khan overshadows the superstar Salman Khan. The actor takes over the star. The movie looks very real compared to his earlier films. Salman Khan's look in the film is interesting and is complete Haryanvi. After the success of the social drama 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', Salman Khan's selection of movies is taking different route like Aamir Khan.

'Sultan' is a sports drama based on wrestling. The movie will be a great boost for wrestlers in our country. We have many successful wrestlers Sushil Kumar, Yogehwar Dutt, Sangram Singh and others winning laurels for our country. But they have never got much due from media despite their success at an international level. Indian media is biased towards cricket. Sports based movies are being liked by the audience. Recently lot of sports based films have done well at box office. These kinds of films motivate you also. Salman Khan being such a big superstar in our country and agreeing to play the main lead in a sports based film like wrestling will be a huge boost. It is releasing on Eid, where Salman Khan's films have hit gold for last few years. We can expect another blockbuster.

Salman Khan has been the most underrated actor of Bollywood despite doing a variety of films and roles in his twenty five year old career. He has won best actor awards for Dabangg and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. He has got certification of appreciation for his career. He has delivered blockbuster films in different genres. The audience has accepted him wholeheartedly in all kinds of films. Sultan will be another major turning point of his career. He will earn maximum praises for his performance in the film. The teaser shows a peek of it. At the age of fifty, he is playing such a difficult role. He is challenging himself as an actor.

Ali Abbas Zafar's 'Sultan' looks very promising and the teaser has raised the expectations from the film. We are expecting a great film on Eid. The film should definitely have big opening at the box office but will get accolades and critical acclaim for the film. This movie looks like a good balance of a great story, commercial star and realism. Salman Khan in his first sports drama has raised more expectations. 'Sultan' teaser is a big success. The buzz generated on social media is a good enough proof of it.
