Director Ali Abbas Zafar was overwhelmed by the warm response received there. This was the second screening for SULTAN at Busan. Talking about the film, Zafar said, “SULTAN is not only a sports film, but also about the husband-wife relationship. It gives you hope. Sport is used in the film as a metaphor for life.”
Earlier, Kabir Khan's BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN too was showcased under same category at BIFF.
Starring Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma, SULTAN is an inherently Indian tale. Loved by audiences across the world, its success at Busan showcases its universal appeal.

These films will be presented to a native South Korean audience in theatres.
With varied cinema from across Asia screened at this prestigious film jamboree, the acceptance that SULTAN has found establishes that mainstream Hindi cinema, when made well, can resonate with movie lovers anywhere in the world.
