Here’s how Salman Khan prepared himself for the ‘paunch’ scene in ‘Sultan’

One of the most crucial scenes from Salman Khan’s ‘Sultan’ is where the actor is standing in front of the mirror taking a look at his paunch with teary eyes. For the actor’s fans, it came as a surprise to see their superstar in a weird shape like that. However, since the script of the film demanded Salman’s character to do that, he did not shy away from it. But again, it wasn’t just another scene for bhai. The actor was not mentally prepared for it and the director of the film, Ali Abbas Zafar had to convince him for three long months to perform the scene comfortably.In an interview, Ali revealed that Salman had to make peace with himself to play the significant scene, which comes at a time when his character feels defeated. He said that they were supposed to shoot the scene in Karjat during the first schedule of the film. But since Salman was not ready to do it then, it had to be postponed. Ali disclosed that since Salman had to gain weight to come into that shape, the superstar would keep calling him worrying that he might not to be able lose his weight and come back into shape again. Divulging details from the day when the scene was finally shot, Ali said that Salman worked out rigorously for four continuous hours before shooting it. The director stated that he did that to counter his consciousness. He further said that Salman didn’t speak to anyone on the set that day and after giving the shot, the superstar left the director numb.
