Imagine if YRF is able to do that with Sultan! But Salman Khan will have to show a lot of range in his acting to be able to sustain viewer interest for so many film. He will also have to work harder physically to not “feel like a raped woman” after the gruelling fight sequences. Sahi bola na?
As for Anushka Sharma, we hope she continues in the franchise as well. Usually, the heroes remain while the heroines change. Hope not this time! And maybe we will have someone playing Sultan and Aarfa’s daughter as well. (ALSO READ: Shah Rukh Khan wants to watch Salman Khan’s Sultan)
