Not Aamir, but Shah Rukh will be a part of Rakesh Sharma biopic

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is now set to play the part of a famous Indian astronaut Rakesh Sharma in the biopic film titled 'Salute'.

Earlier, Aamir Khan had signed the film to play the role of the first Indian to travel in space but later backed out as he wanted to spend a lot of time on his own special project.

It is reported that Aamir personally met Shah Rukh and requested him to take up the biopic film. After discussions with the film's producer Sidharth Roy Kapur, Shah Rukh finally decided to play Rakesh Sharma.

This is not the first time Shah Rukh will be a part of a film on outer space or astronomy as earlier he had acted as a NASA engineer in Ashutosh Gowariker’s successful film 'Swades'.

Hopefully, King Khan will create the same magic with 'Salute' as well!
