A few days back we reported that Aamir Khan will star in Rakesh Sharma biopic. Rakesh made history when he became the first Indian to have ever entered space.
Talking about the biopic, an excited Rakesh says, “This has been going on since the last eight years now. It has taken long to come to this point. The filmmakers were busy with other projects and I was busy too.”
Rakesh also informs that the casting and the scripting hasn’t been done yet. “It is a very tedious affair. It’s still in the offing and Aamir Khan is going to play my role. But the rest has not been finalised,” he says.
“It all depends on how the movie is handled. Even the final script is not locked yet, so I don’t know what parts of my life will be portrayed on screen,” says Rakesh while talking about the film that is produced by Siddarth Roy Kapur under his banner of RK films.
Earlier, the movie was supposed to be titled Saare Jaha Se Accha but is now tentatively titled Salute. A source close to the development adds, “Things are in a preliminary stages right now. Aamir will meet Rakesh soon because people know the way he functions. Aamir is a perfectionist and he would like to do things with immense research.”
Aamir Khan is currently working on his upcoming film Thugs of Hindustan.
