After Aamir Khan dropped out of Rakesh Sharma’s biopic Saare Jahan Se Achha, Shah Rukh Khan had earlier cleared the air of not being a part of the mega budget film. Due to this, the project seems to have been delayed. Sources suggest that the makers are still hopeful of getting the superstar back in the fold and they have now approached Aamir to try and convince SRK to say yes to the project again. Rakesh Sharma was the first Indian to travel into space.
“Aamir was the first one to be approached for the role. However, since Aamir is already tied up with multiple projects, he suggested SRK’s name. Infact, he himself picked up the phone and called SRK to tell him about Saare Jahan Se Acha and that the film was something he should be doing. It was on Aamir’s word, SRK showed interest in the project. Now, after SRK backed out of it, the producers have approached Aamir once again and requested him to ask Shah Rukh to take up the project. The producers are planning to invest huge money into the project and need a superstar to lead it to get back the returns,” a source said.
After SRK dropped out of it, rumours suggested that the main role will be played by either Vicky Kaushal or Rajkummar Rao. Recently, Rajkummar talked about the same and said that there was no truth to any of the speculations.
On the professional front, Shah Rukh was last seen in Anand L. Rai’s Zero with Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif. Now, according to sources, he will next be seen in Don 3 with Farhan Akhtar.
