Earlier as per the reports, Rakesh Sharma’s biopic ‘Salute’ was offered to Aamir Khan by director Mahesh Mathai and producer Sidharth Roy Kapur. Rakesh Sharma was the first Indian to travel in space.
Aamir was very keen to do the project but signing it was like locking horns with his dream project ‘Mahabharata’ which is going to take a lot of time.
Mahabharata might take around 10 years of the actors like, there are also speculations revolving around that Baahubali filmmaker SS Rajamouli is very much interested in making the epic ‘Mahabharata’. Khan has expressed his wish of playing the role of Karna or Krishna in the epic. Also, Aamir Khan is already shooting in Malta for Thugs of Hindostan along with powerful star cast like Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh which is all set to release in Diwali 2018.
So has Khan asked Shah Rukh Khan to sign the film?
As per reports, Aamir Khan backed out of Rakesh Sharma biopic ‘Salute’ and went on to personally meet SRK, urging him to sign the project as he has stopped taking any other projects, to play the role of the first Indian who travelled in space.
This comes as a surprise! Shah Rukh Khan has accepted the 3 Idiots actor Aamir Khan’s request to take up the biopic, and has signed the movie after discussing all things with producer Sidharth Roy Kapoor and director Mahesh Mathai.
The audience will be delighted to see the Badshah of Bollywood playing the role of an Indian astronaut who becomes the first of our country to travel in space. Currently, the Raees actor is working for Anand L Rai’s project with Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma which is slated to release in December 2018.
