Superstar Shah Rukh Khan has replaced Aamir Khan in Rakesh Sharma biopic. If latest reports are to be believed, Mr Perfectionist personally met King Khan and requested him to sign the project. The movie will be bankrolled by Sidharth Roy Kapur and helmed by Mahesh Mathai. If this report turns out to be true, then it will be interesting to watch the king of romance playing the wonderful role of the first Indian to travel in space.
According to a source, Aamir convinced SRK that the script of the film is worth walking that extra mile for. It is also being said that Aamir has stopped taking any other assignment as he wants to devote his time to his dear project.
SRK has earlier played the role of a NASA engineer in Ashutosh Gowariker’s Swades. It is yet to be seen if he manages to spell magic with Salute. Official announcement on the same is still awaited.
On the professional front, SRK was last seen in Jab Harry Met Sejal. The movie couldn’t perform well at the box office. He is occupied with the work of Anand L Rai’s untitled project alongside Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. Aamir, on the other hand, will be seen sharing the screen space with Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina in Thugs of Hindostan.
