Director Ali Abbas Zafar, who has previously directed films like ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ and ‘Gunday’, will be directing a superstar for the first time in his career.
Zafar says, his career depends on what happens when ‘Sultan’ releases in theatres this Eid. The director also added that ‘Sultan’ is the first film that he has written with an actor in mind.
“My career depends on what happens on Eid. But it’s all about what the script demand (working with a superstar or a younger actor). Sultan is the first script that I have written with an actor in mind. When I write, I don’t necessarily limit myself to thinking about a particular actor doing that part. It’s not a good practice because if that actor turns it down, you would be left with nothing”
“When I write, I write with the thought that this is the character that I want to create and this is the best story I can narrate” he added.
Zafar also said, it’s his responsibility to not let Salman and Aditya Chopra (producer) down.
“It’s good for a director when there are high expectations for his film because that’s what you work towards. When an actor puts so much commitment into a project, it becomes the director’s responsibility not to let him down”
“My commitment in this film is to two people: my producer Aditya Chopra because he gave me the budget to make this film and Salman because he has done everything that the script demanded and that I wanted.”
