The story of the pride and star of Haryana - Sultan, the wrestler who believes that wrestling is not merely a sport but a way of tackling what lies within a person.




Retired wrestling champion Sultan Ali Khan’s (Salman Khan) glory days seem to have passed him by. That is, until, he is approached by Aakash Oberoi (Amit Sadh), the founder of a mixed martial arts league. Oberoi is looking for someone to revive his league’s popularity. He travels to Haryana seeking out Sultan, riding his chances on the ex-wrestlers famed past. However, Sultan is living a rather sedate life now, and Oberoi is soon to find out why. Eight years back, Sultan met and fell in love with Aarfa Hussain (Anushka Sharma), daughter of a local wrestling coach. In order to win over her love, he had to prove his mettle in the ring as well. Sultan dedicates himself to training in her name and succeeds in winning Aarfa’s hand in marriage. Alongside their love story, Sultan sees huge success in his career. When his pride gets in the way, at the wrong time — Aarfa is pregnant — Sultan’s subsequent path turns tumultuous. Then tragedy strikes— they lose their baby at birth and Aarfa blames Sultan. Flash-forward to the present: Sultan is given a chance to make amends by accepting Aakash’s offer.
