A lot has been written and said about Salman Khan's SULTAN and Aamir Khan's DANGAL being similar in terms of plot and both being based on wrestling. Not only this, even their respective characters hail from Haryana, they are rustic and the two stars will be seen speaking Haryanvi in their movies. Besides, both Aamir and Salman are seen sporting similar type of look – short hairdo – for their respective films.


Reportedly, the two actors had a huge brawl in a party organized by Aamir Khan. While Aamir took a dig at Salman's career choices and accused him that Salman didn't work hard as his fans readily accepted whatever he threw at them, Salman in turn went on to call Aamir as ‘fake'.

However, our close sources have it that both the films are way different from each other. While DANGAL is more to do with Aamir Khan's character's (Mahavir Phogat) two daughters, in SULTAN, Salman Khan depicts the life of a struggling wrestler. While DANGAL is based on a true incident, SULTAN is a fictional story.

When we contacted the director of SULTAN Ali Abbas Zafar, even he clarified, “DANGAL and SULTAN are two very different films with two different stories. I think because of wrestling people are comparing it but they shouldn't be compared.”

Though DANGAL went on floors in September and SULTAN shoot will begin by mid-November, Salman Khan starrer SULTAN is set to hit the screens before Aamir Khan's DANGAL (which is scheduled for Christmas 2016 release).

If we go by Ali's words, then we believe there is no point in fighting or clashing with each other. Hope after hearing this both Aamir and Salman will be relieved with it now.
