Sultan starlet Anushka Sharma recently stated that she was afraid of playing a female wrestler in the beginning. However, once the actress did her research on the matter, she found several female wrestlers around the world looked like her. This is what she said:-
“Earlier, I was very scared as I don’t look like a wrestler. We have a perception that wrestlers are of a particular size. I used to often question producer Aditya Chopra how can this happen (looking like a wrestler),” she said.
“But when I did some research I found out that there were people internationally who looked like me,” she said.
