New Delhi: Two of the biggest Khans of Bollywood, Salman and Aamir, are all set to bombard the silver screens by essaying the characters of wrestlers in their upcoming films 'Sultan' and 'Dangal' respectively. But, did you guys know that the first draft of the Ali Abbas Zafar directorial was called 'Dangal'? Yes, you read that right.
As per a Pinkvilla report, originally attributed to a recent interview, Ali has revealed that he had no idea that any other movie on wrestling was ever going to be made when he started writing the script for 'Sultan' four years back. And, the first ten pages of his draft were titled 'Dangal'.
Seriously, what a coincidence!
“Dangal means a wrestling competition. When I travelled in Haryana for research in 2012, I would ask people about the matches and they would say, ‘Aaj dangal chaupal pe hai, aaj dangal nadi ke paas hai.’ I just thought ek jo charm tha uss title ka, bahut honest charm tha,” the report further quoted him as saying.
However, it is being said that both these films have a completely different storyline. Now, we can only wait for the release of both films in order to judge how similar they appear on-screen.
