Anushka Sharma’s wrestling movements in Sultan is so real and professional that it is hard to notice the character is played by an actress who has little knowledge of the game.
The actress has wowed audiences and film critics with her turn as Aarfa in Sultan. Her character made huge impact on celebrated female wrestlers from India and wrestling professionals.
In the words of Deepika Kaliraman, national wrestling champion, “Anushka’s work is awesome and fabulous, every move, every technique she does is like a professional. A lot of eminent actresses have played sportspersons but Anuhska has done a spectacular job. Each technique and each move is so sharp and accurate that you can’t guess if it’s an actress or a professional wrestler. Dialogues are still a part of the story but her movements as a wrestler – be it the Dhobi pachad move or Bharandaach – all her moves were so accurate! She looked a wrestler, didn’t feel fake.” – CINEWS
