Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - YASHIKA MATHUR

Ac­tor Sal­man Khan (left), who will be seen as a wrestler in one of his fu­ture projects, has re­port­edly grown so fond of the com­bat sport that he spent sev­eral hours learn­ing it. “Sal­man has grown very fond of wrestling and has re­li­giously de­voted sev­eral hours to learn­ing the art,” says the spokesper­son of Sal­man’s up­com­ing film, a Sooraj Bar­jatiya di­rec­to­rial that has a wrestling se­quence.

The ac­tor first de­vel­oped a lik­ing for the sport while shoot­ing for film­maker Kabir Khan’s Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan (2015), in which he had to per­form some wrestling scenes.

“It was his scenes in Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan that got him in­ter­ested in the sport. Later, he de­cided to learn wrestling be­cause he has a sim­i­lar se­quence in the movie. Not only has this film helped him learn some­thing new, he also en­joyed ev­ery bit of the shoot,” says a source.

“Sal­man is al­ways keen on learn­ing new things. When he saw how much fun wrestling can be, he de­cided to learn it, and was elated when he got to know that there is a scene in his next film that re­quires him to show his wrestling skills,” adds the source.
