Another In­dian movie on wrestling to hit big screen

Changjiang Weekly - - CULTURE - By Qiu Chen

The news that In­dian fe­male wrestler Vi­nesh Phogat won the gold medal in the Asian Games swept through the sports world in the past few days. Chi­nese ne­ti­zens found it en­dear­ing be­cause Phogat is the cousin of Gita, the pro­to­type of the In­dian film "Dan­gal" that was wildly pop­u­lar in China last year.

On Au­gust 31, another wrestlingth­emed In­dian film "Sul­tan" will be re­leased in do­mes­tic cine­mas. The story of "Sul­tan" is as in­spi­ra­tional as "Dan­gal," but more ro­man­tic. It tells a love story of a young man Sul­tan, who falls in love with a wrestling coach's daugh­ter at first sight. To pur­sue love, Sul­tan, who never learned how to wres­tle, is de­ter­mined to be­come a wrestling cham­pion at all costs.
