Several reports have been doing the rounds of media regarding the biopic on the astronaut Rakesh Sharma. Popular names of Bollywood like Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh have been associated with the film.

In a conversation with media at the Zee Cine Awards 2018, she said, ”I have finalised two-three scripts. Now, I am left to make announcements. Yes, Rakesh Sharma biopic was one of them. I was approached for that film when Aamir was doing it. We were supposed to do in 2019. Now, I don’t know. Aamir is not in the film now.”
When asked about SRK being a part of the film, she said, ”I don’t know. I haven’t got any confirmations. I haven’t spoken to Sid (Sidharth Roy Kapur) or Mahesh (Mathai) sir. As soon as I know, I will see.”
