Shah Rukh Khan apparently left astronaut Rakesh Sharma’s biopic Saare Jahan Se Achcha few weeks ago. Since then there is a buzz that Vicky Kaushal, who worked with the same producers in Uri might step into the project. The makers though are yet to make an official announcement, it is said that they are now considering Ranbir Kapoor.
A source says, ” Vicky is doing Shoojit Sircar’s Udham Singh and he might not be able to do Rakesh Sharma’s biopic at a same time. He has to maintain different looks and give dates to both project which looks bit difficult. The makers of Rakesh Sharma’s biopic are in favour of starting the film as soon as possible as it has been delayed due to change of casting. They think Ranbir is suitable for the role and he was also in consideration before Vicky was finalised, so they are once again thinking of going with their previous option. They are likely to approach him.”
Ranbir too has a busy year ahead with Brahmastra, Shamshera and Luv Ranjan’s untitled film. Whether he will be able to give them his dates immediately or not that is also not yet clear. Moreover, it is said that the actor also keen to do yet another biopic after Sanju, which released last year.
