Anushka Sharma is very happy her character in Sultan, Aarfa, was able to stand her ground despite the persona of Salman Khan.

She said that it was a great thing to get Salman fans to say they were her fans too because they were very loyal.

Anushka Sharma says being appreciated in Sultan is a major deal

The appreciation is even more special for her since she considers this film by Ali Abbas Zafar the most challenging project she has ever been a part of.

She feels like her robot style of working in order to make the physical changes and understanding how Aarfa thinks all paid off.

Changing her body type, learning a new sport and waking up early to train made her feel like a robot. But she’s grateful because of all the love fans are giving her.
