The Rakesh Sharma Biopic has been in the news ever since the makers have announced it in the media. It has been titled as Saare Jahan Se Achcha by the makers – Sidharth Roy Kapur. The first man to be approached for the role was Aamir Khan but he had to opt out since he has some other major projects. However, Aamir recommended the makers to cast Shah Rukh Khan. King Khan has even confirmed about the role in the said biopic but he had to give up soon due to the debacle of his film – Zero.
His film failed to impress the audience in a big way that made SRK turn conscious about choosing a film with experimenting roles. Hence he shelved the venture and is yet to announce his movie. Later Vikcy Kaushal came into the picture and due to several reasons, he also had to get rid of the film. Perhaps it seems that nothing of that sort is happening. Later no actor was seen coming into the picture to get the film for the same. Now, as per the latest buzz, we hear that super star Salman Khan has been approached for the same to play the leading man.
The sources close to Salman Khan also indicate that the actor has even heard the script and if things go smoothly he may opt for the film. However, the actor is yet to give his consent for the film as he is taking time. There are some reports that suggest that the makers Siddharth Roy Kapur had the meeting with Salman to talk about some of his projects including the biopic. He has discussed the film and is even confident that Salman Khan is going to give his consent for the biopic.
The project will be a major one for Salman and would be an expensive one. Hence they are looking for someone who is a superstar for the movie. However, Salman Khan is facing some dates issue from March, hence he is still not clear on this project. The sources claimed that he has liked the idea and is yet to give his nod. The film has been a salute to the nation hence the makers are not compromising on the leading man for the film. After all, it is a film based on the life of Rakesh Kumar who is the only Indian astronaut to get into space. He was the only Indian to travel to space in the Soviet rocket Soyuz T-11 in the year 1984. It will be interesting to see Salman Khan doing this film if he gives his consent for it.
