Awesome & Excellent SHOW
6 July 2016 | by (Gurgaon) – See all my reviews

Watched SULTAN !! Excellent movie .....standing ovation for the tremendous performance @ SALMAN Excellent performance by Anushka Sharna & Randeep Hooda. All time Blockbuster ... !! A true sportsman movie

Journey of #Sultan begins... Salman Khan at his careers best. Godly physique, firm determination and killer training: that's how champions are made. Salman #Sultan Khan enters with a bang. On-screen or off-screen, crowds go crazy. Whistles, cheers everywhere.

Every frame of Sultan will have deep significance for Khan's numerous fans, who have stuck by Hindi cinema's notorious prodigal son despite his frequent off-screen controversies.
