Just so you know him better, he is a trained Mixed Martial Artist.


He's an avid fitness enthusiast and his look for Sultan proves that!


During his visit, he made sure that he met India's local mud pit fighters and encourage local talent.


You can almost feel the adrenaline rush, watching this guy train for his role.


Looks like Salman Khan couldn't have asked for a better action trainer!


Welcome to Bollywood, Hans!
