According to a source of Deccan Chronicle, it was Aamir himself who urged SRK to take up the project. The source says, ”Aamir strongly recommended the Rakesh Sharma biopic to Shah Rukh as a script worth walking that extra mile for. More so, since Aamir intends to devote a substantial period of his time to a very dear project of his, presumably the Mahabharat, and has stopped accepting any other assignments currently.”
The film is based on the life of the astronaut Rakesh Sharma, the first Indian to land on moon. Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh were also approached for roles in Rakesh Sharma’s biopic. But there has been no confirmation from either side.
The film will be produced by Sidharth Roy Kapur and will be directed by Mahesh Mathai.
Talking about the professional fronts of the actor, Aamir Khan is currently shooting for the film Thugs Of Hindostan. It also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in pivotal roles. On the other hand, Shah Rukh Khan is going to be seen in Aanand L Rai’s next untitled project. The film also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif.
