MUMBAI -- Superstar Aamir Khan has a lot of expectations from his actor-friend Salman Khan's upcoming film Sultan and is confident that it will turn out to be good.

"Salman's films are always very good. I have a lot of expectations from Sultan. I am sure it will be a good film. Like everyone I also wait eagerly for his film," Aamir told reporters at the screening of Neerja.

The Dabangg (2010) Khan plays a wrestler from Haryana in Sultan. Aamir also plays the role of a wrestler in his much talked-about film Dangal.

Sultan is scheduled to release on Eid and Dangal is expected to hit the cinema houses in December.

In Dangal, a biographical sports-drama directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Aamir plays Mahavir Singh Phogat who taught wrestling to his daughters Babita Kumari and Geeta Phogat.

Aamir underwent a drastic change in his looks for the film.

"It will be Ghajini look again. For this film, I had to lose and gain weight. I had to gain 25 kg weight in six months and in the beginning my character is young...national level champion wrestler. I have to shoot for the young part," the 50-year-old actor said.

"Like how Sushil Kumar has muscular Ghajini...I have to get that look. I am working on that, it will take six months," he said.
