The actor will stay away from alcohol, as part of the drill to train for Sultan.
Salman Khan, known to have gathered quite a few tipple tales over the years, is in a complete detox mode. The actor has resolved to stay away from alcohol for the entire schedule of Sultan.
Says a source close to the project, “Salman plays a wrestler in the film, so training for the character calls for an enormous amount of discipline. He is undergoing rigorous physical training and has been advised to not touch a drop of alcohol till the time the shoot is completely wrapped up.”
According to a friend of the actor, this is in stark contrast to the Salman Khan in early 2000. “About 10 years ago, Salman used to really enjoy his drink and it wasn’t unusual for him to carry around a bottle of his favourite tipple. But of late, he had reduced it to an occasional glass of wine or so. With Sultan, he has sworn to stay completely away from any sort of alcoholic drink till the last day of the shoot.”
