Mumbai: The muscular Salman Khan is gearing up to play the role of a kushti guru these days, but off the screen. According to the latest news, Salman, who’s looking forward to the release of his much-awaited film ‘Dabangg’, is set to judge a wrestling match in Nagpur, as part of the film’s promotion.
Salman will reportedly be seen judging a wrestling match along with brothers Arbaaz and Sohail, and his ‘Dabangg’ co-stars Sonakshi Sinha, Sonu Sood and Malaika Arora Khan in Nagpur very soon to kick-off the promotion drive of ‘Dabangg’.
Reports reveal that the idea to be a part of a local wrestling match draws influence from the fact that Salman’s character in ‘Dabangg’, Chulbul `Robinhood` Pandey, wrestles goons in the film.
Talking to a news daily, a source said, “Salman was quite thrilled with the idea of judging a wrestling match. Since ‘kushti’ is an extremely popular sport in Nagpur, there would be a huge crowd for the event. Also, with Salman being the celebrity judge, it would be a great way to kick-start the promotions.”
“Don`t be surprised if Salman jumps into the ring and tries some moves with the wrestlers. He has a knack for springing surprises,” added the source.
