Bask­ing in the glory of his re­cent suc­cess Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan, ac­tor Sal­man Khan is busy pre­par­ing for his next al­ready. The ac­tor will be play­ing the role of a wrestler in Sultan, and vis­it­ing akhadas for the same. “I’m train­ing for Sultan now. I’ve done just a quar­ter of the train­ing and it’s just so ex­haust­ing al­ready!” he said.


Ac­tor Sushant Singh Ra­jput is leav­ing no stone un­turned to per­fect his look in an up­com­ing biopic on crick­eter MS Dhoni. He’s grown his hair, prac­tic­ing Dhoni’s trade­mark he­li­copter shots, and has also been jog­ging and tak­ing short sprints to get into shape.


Ac­tor Kan­gana Ra­naut is set to learn a host of new things for her up­com­ing film Rangoon. “Kan­gana plays Ju­lia, a Broad­way star, in the film. She’ll un­dergo al­most three months of train­ing in dance,” says a source. The ac­tor is learn­ing horse rid­ing and sword fight­ing for her up­com­ing Rani Laxmibai biopic too.


Ac­tor Em­raan Hashmi sur­prised all with his look in for­mer crick­eter Mo­ham­mad Azharud­din’s biopic. He had to wear a four-inch heel in soles to stand six feet one inches tall. A bas­ket­ball shoe flushed with other heel ma­te­ri­als was used to help him get the de­sired height.


Ac­tor Deepika Padukone is also up­ping her ac­tion game for Ba­ji­rao Mas­tani. “As I’ve never done a role that re­quires any of this, it’ll be hard. Horse rid­ing should be fun, but it’ll also be stress­ful as I know the train­ing would be done si­mul­ta­ne­ously with the shoot­ing of the film,” Deepika had told us ear­lier.
