Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer wrestling drama ‘Sultan’, which was a blockbuster, is all set to release in China on August 31.

While Salman Khan and Ali Abbas Zafar are busy with their third film together titled ‘Bharat’, the director is very excited for its China release. Speaking to a daily, he said that everytime a film releases even if it has already released in India, it is very exciting as a new audience gets to watch the film and one gets a new perspective. As China has become a huge market for Indian films, Ali is excited to see how the audience in China will react after watching Sultan.
This will be Salman Khan’s second film releasing this year in China after ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ which was helmed by Kabir Khan. Ali Abbas Zafar hopes that if the box office numbers are anywhere close to ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, he will be more than happy about it.
