Ronnie Screwvala said to The Indian Express, “It (The script) has been with us for quite a long time. The film will go on floors early next year. We will make an official announcement soon”.

Until last year, Aamir was supposed to lead the film and at that time Priyanka Chopra was approached to be a part of the project. The biopic will star Bhumi Pednekar in the female lead, as per BollywoodBubble’s exclusive report. It sure would be interesting to see how the ‘King of Romance’ pulls off himself in a biopic genre. On the work front, Shah Rukh Khan will be next seen in ‘Zero’, where he is playing a dwarf and the project also stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.

The biopic genre in recent times has proved to be a hit formula to en cash on by Bollywood filmmakers and a film on astronaut’s life will be a unique concept as far as a biopic is concerned. Also knowing SRK, he would certainly bring his aura and performance into it. The shooting of this biopic will begin in February 2019.
