When the trailer of Salman Khan-starrer Sultan was launched back in May, some of the scenes in the trailer did remind us of Sylvester Stallone-starrer Rocky—especially the training scenes and a scene where Salman’s character breaks his own statue. Now we have learned that the film is indeed following Rocky.
There is a strong buzz that the makers of the film are planning to create another franchise with Sultan. Reportedly, the makers have already asked the film’s writer-director Ali Abbas Zafar to start scripting the part deux of the film.
YRF’s Sultan is expected to cross the Rs 100-crore mark by the end of the third day of its release. Stallone’s Rocky franchise had seven films and the series grossed more than US$ 1 billion at the box office worldwide.
