Salman Khan, who made his acting debut with the 1988 film Biwi Ho To Aisi, has starred in so many movies over his three-decade-long career in Hindi cinema. Over the years, Khan has played a diverse range of characters in movies belonging to different genres. While some of his characters clicked with the audiences, others failed to leave any impact.

Recently, Khan opened up about the most challenging character that he has played in his career. Surprisingly, it was not his role in Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) where he had to perform a series of jaw-dropping action sequences. Khan, in fact, revealed that it was his character in the 2016 blockbuster film Sultan which he felt was the most challenging role to play.

Talking about his role in Sultan, where he played a wrestler, Salman Khan told an Indian daily, “That has been my most challenging film so far, physically. I had to lose weight and then gain weight, and the cycle continued.”

The superstar went on to add that it was physically very demanding for him to play Sultan Ali Khan in the film. “When I was not shooting, I would be in the gym. It was physically demanding and thus, the most challenging as an actor.”

In Sultan, which also starred Anushka Sharma in the lead role, Salman Khan was seen in the role of a wrestler who goes from fit to unfit. But circumstances force him to get back into shape within a short span of time and participate in a high-profile wrestling tournament. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Sultan was one of the biggest hits of 2016. After the humongous success of the film, Salman Khan and Ali Abbas Zafar collaborated on Tiger Zinda Hai and Bharat (2019).

Meanwhile, Salman Khan is busy filming the third instalment of Dabangg (2009). Also starring Sonakshi Sinha, the much-awaited crop drama, Dabangg 3, is set to enter theatres on 20th December, 2019.
