Owing to date issues, Ranbir Kapoor forced to turn down Rakesh Sharma biopic

Astronaut Rakesh Sharma’s biopic, Saare Jahan Se Achcha has been in news for its casting woes for a long time now. The film was to start earlier this year but was delayed after Shah Rukh Khan reportedly opted out of it. Vicky Kaushal then gave a look test for the role and buzz suggested that actor’s engagement with the fim Udham Singh made him out of the space explorer’s biopic. So, the makers were considering Ranbir Kapoor and it looks like he too might not be able to do it.

A source says,” Casting for the film has been big issue which the makers are facing for long time now. Ranbir has allotted all his dates for his next three films that is Brahmastra,Shamshera and Luv Ranjan’s film so he cannot give dates to this biopic. On the the other hand, the makers are keen to start the film soon as it has already been delayed by couple of months.”

Rumour has it that since the makers have worked with Vicky in Urdu, they are in favour of having him on board. They are apparently trying to figure out if he can adjust his schedule and allot dates to them.
