Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer wrestling drama ‘Sultan’ has been shortlisted to compete in one of the categories at the Shanghai International Film Festival to be held in June 2017.

‘Sultan’ has been selected in the Jackie Chan Action Movie Week section where awards are given by the combined means of judge assessment and audience vote.

“As a film, ‘Sultan’ is a home grown story of a fighter and an underdog rooted in our country’s soil. The film’s action reflects this and has won popular opinion over in India.

“That China, a nation with a proud legacy of cinema and a priceless heritage of classic action and martial arts, has found it suitable to feature in an action competition section is huge gratification to us. We are excited and proud to be part of Shanghai International Film Festival,” director Ali Abbas Zafar said.

‘Sultan’ has also been screened at the prestigious Busan International Film Festival and the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa.
