As Bollywood has become a family fiefdom, the sons, daughters, and other relatives of the veteran Bollywood film artists work in new films for peanuts to keep the costs in control.
Sultan, a Bollywood movie from Yash Raj Films starring Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma, has been shortlisted to compete for top honors at the Shanghai International Film Festival taking place 17-26 June.
Sultan gets entry in the Jackie Chan Action Movie Week section of the festival that focuses on cinema from China and South East Asia.
Director Ali Abbas Zafar said, “As a film, Sultan is a home grown story of a fighter and an underdog rooted in our country’s soil. The film’s action reflects this and has won popular opinion over in India. We are excited and proud to be part of Shanghai International Film Festival.”
Sultan has also been screened at the Busan International Film Festival and the IFFI Goa earlier.
