Sultan director Ali Abbas Zafar and its actors Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma emerged winners at the Tehran International Sports Film Festival.

Zafar won an Honorary Diploma for the Best Director of Long Narrative, while Khan and Sharma won the Best Actor and Diploma in the Long Narrative section and the Best Actress trophy and diploma in the Long Narrative section, read a statement from the movie's production banner Yash Raj Films.

"Sultan has cut across borders, cultures and languages with its powerful story, performances and honest belief in the life changing impact of a sport. The team and I are very thankful to the organisers at Tehran International Sports Film Festival for their appreciation and love," Zafar said in a statement.

Sultan revolves around a middle-aged wrestler, who gives up the sport. Years later, he sets out to revive his career as he needs the prize money and wants to regain his lost respect.
