As a child he has been one of the most inspiring action stars for me and many Indians. Sultan is about desi, Indian wrestling and it’s raw power. Amidst a selection of brilliant action films that present the most refined martial arts, the film’s win is rewarding, and reflects that a good story based in action has universal appeal.”
