In the last night's episode of Bigg Boss 15, we saw Jersey actors Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur gracing the sets to promote their sports drama film that talks about the importance of taking efforts. Salman Khan welcomed the guests - Shahid and Mrunal on stage and instantly popped a trivia. The host of Bigg Boss 15, revealed that he was supposed to star in a film with Mrunal together. Yes, you read that right. However, Mrunal didn't fit the bill for a reason. Salman revealed that the original star of the Blockbuster film Sultan was Mrunal Thakur. Shahid was pleasantly surprised by the revelation.
Salman said, "She (Mrunal) had come to the farm to meet me. Ali (Ali Abbas Zafar, the director) leke aaya that inko. (Ali had brought her to meet me)." He then proceeded to reveal the reason for the same. "Uss waqt he pehelwaan type lag hi nahi rahi this. (She didn't look like a wrestler at all)," the Tiger 3 actor said and everyone broke into laughter. Mrunal reasoned that she had lost a lot of weight back then. "Anushka bhi nahi lagti this," Salman added. Salman went on to praise that he always knew that she would do well in the industry.
Talking about Sultan, the film was a humongous hit back when it was released in 2016. Anushka Sharma eventually played the lead and Salman's chemistry with Anushka was appreciated by the masses.
