India’s first astronaut Rakesh Sharma’s biopic was earlier to called ‘Salute’. It is now called ‘Saare Jahaan Se Achcha’ which will be directed by ‘Bhopal Express’ fame Mahesh Mathai. The film has been written by Anjum Rajabali who has written many prominent films, reported Bollywood Hungama.

Shah Rukh Khan will essay the role of main protagonist i.e. India’s first astronaut Rakesh Sharma’s role and the shooting of the film was supposed to begin in September this year. Rakesh Sharma’s biopic would be fascinating to watch, as in the genre of biopics, not many films have been made on astronauts. With SRK playing the leading role, there will be curiosity and excitement at the same time.

Most biopics made in India have generally featured athletes which are Geeta Phogat, Mary Kom and other fictional characters.

Shah Rukh Khan’s next release is ‘Zero’, where he is playing a dwarf character and the star cast of that film also includes Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif . Several names have popped up for the leading lady and there have been reports that Bhumi Pednekar has been roped in for this biopic.
