Actress Anushka Sharma has started shooting for “Sultan” in which she stars opposite Salman Khan.
This is the first time 27-year-old actress, who made her debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in 2008, will share screen space with the “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” star.
Anushka took to Twitter to share the excitement. “New beginnings ... New journey .. Heading for the first day of #Sultan shoot . Excited !! Here we go .. !!,” she tweeted.

The news of Anushka coming on board as the female lead for the film, came almost a year after the movie was announced and names of a slew of actresses from Kangana Ranaut, Deepika Padukone, Kriti Sanon and Parineeti Chopa cropped up for the role.
Produced by Yash Raj Films, “Sultan” will hit the screens this Eid in a box office clash with Shah Rukh Khans “Raees”.
