The flavour of the season seems to be pugilism. Even as Priyanka Chopra prepares to take the nation and the boxing ring by storm in and as Mary Kom, Akshay Kumar, Sidharth Malhotra and Jackie Shroff are readying themselves to get into the boxing arena in the desi remake of Warrior.
Joining the pulsating parade of pugilists is Salman Khan. According to reliable sources, Salman Khan would be doing some boxing and fencing in Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
“It is Sooraj Barjatya’s first action-oriented film. Salman Khan has a double role in the film. While in one of the roles he is cast as a peace-loving typical Sooraj Barjatya hero, in the other role he is a fighter,” says a source.
Salman Khan would be training in sword-fencing and boxing to fit into Barjatya’s new film.
