I was scared as I don’t look like a wrestler: Anushka Sharma

Actress Anushka Sharma was initially scared while doing Salman Khan-starrer “Sultan” as she felt that she did not look like a wrestler.
“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),” Anushka told reporters at the trailer launch of “Sultan”.
“But when I did some research I found out that there were people internationally who looked like me,” she said.
Anushka did not want to use a body-double in the movie.

For the 28-year-old actress says getting close to someone and fighting was very uncomfortable for her.
“I think as an actor and as a girl you are not used to having someone so close. In the beginning I used to feel very uncomfortable,” she said.
“When I saw lot of videos I realised that you have to go all into it and do it correctly. I went for it and did not care about anything,” Anushka added.
To learn a few things about her character of a wrestler, Anushka learnt many new aspects to the lives of wrestlers.
“I had a good team of trainers. I was prepared before the start of shooting for the film. Luckily, there were no injuries. But injuries can happen if someone is fighting or wrestling the whole life,” she said.
The “PK” actress got six weeks time to prepare for the movie and she is thrilled that  everything went on as expected.
“The kind of work that goes into wrestling is something we had not seen before, I am happy I got to experience it in fragments. It has been a good experience and I am going to hold it close to my life,” she said.
For the first time Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma will be seen romancing each other. But, the actress insists their on screen love story is quite different.
“It’s the story of two wrestlers, they understand the ups and downs of each other as they are in the same profession. My character in the film says – in life if you start focusing on one thing too much you forget important things. So their love story goes up and down and how it affects his life,” she added.
