Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is in a desperate need of a big success to retain the glory at the box office. After the debacle of Jab Harry Met Sejal and much-hyped Zero, looks like the actor is revising his choices of scripts. Recently, Khan confirmed about being part of the Saare Jahaan Se Accha, a biopic based on astronaut Rakesh Sharma, but now an altogether different story is coming to the lights.
As reported by DNA, Shah Rukh Khan has walked out of the much-talked biopic on astronaut Rakesh Sharma. Also as per the rumours flowing in, SRK has opted out of the biopic because he is willing to do Don 3.
Recently during a trailer launch event of Gully Boy, Farhan Akhtar, who is co-producing the movie, stated of making a special announcement very soon and it was speculated to be the proclamation of Shah Rukh Khan’s Don 3.
It seems like Shah Rukh Khan is trying to avoid any experimentation with his scripts and roles as all such experimentation including Fan, Jab Harry Met Sejal and Zero, tanked at the box office.
Mahesh Mathai, who is directing Saare Jahaan Se Accha, said he is an inspiring Indian hero.
A painting of Sharma was unveiled at the Russian Embassy. The event was hosted in association with the BRICS Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Mathai, who was present at the event, said in a statement to IANS: “It was wonderful to see Rakesh felicitated by the Russian Embassy. Rakesh is an inspiring Indian hero and I was honoured to be part of this event.”
Sharma flew on board a Soyuz spacecraft in 1984 as part of a Soviet Interkosmos mission. His daring flight fired up the imagination of an entire generation and when asked by then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, how India looked from space, Sharma had uttered the now iconic words ‘Saare Jahaan Se Accha’.
