New Delhi: The trailer of upcoming Bollywood film 'Sultan's is already breaking the Internet. Especially, with Salman Khan's all new wrestler look, it has left the cinema lover want for more. But, what amazed us the most is Anushka Sharma's transformation into a wrestler as she is playing a woman kushti player from Haryana.

With this movie, Anushka definitely breaks the stereotype of lean girls entering the world of wrestling.

You will be amazed to know that the 28-year-old actress opted to do the stunts herself in 'Sultan'.

According to a report in TOI, she was quoted as saying, ''Earlier, I was very scared as I don't look like a wrestler. We have a perception that wrestlers are of a particular size. I used to often question producer Aditya Chopra how can this happen (looking like a wrestler). But when I did some research I found out that there were people internationally who looked like me."

The actress further said, ''I am very happy I did it as now if I see wrestling, I will come to know how it happens. I am grateful for the opportunity. I was sure we will not use a body double. I felt if I have learnt something, I want to show it properly. I worked hard and I am happy I got to do it.''

Well, the trailer has definitely left us crave for Ali Abbas Zafar's directorial venture 'Sultan' which will hit the theaters this Eid!
