Shah Rukh Khan is reportedly considering the film role which is a biopic on India's first astronaut Rakesh Sharma. King Khan was approached after Aamir Khan abdicated the role citing differences of opinion regarding the script.
As per a media report by Deccan Chronicle, an insider confirmed, “Aamir is not someone who will do a film if he’s not 100 percent convinced of it. The report also has another quote on Aamir’s exit. “When Siddharth Roy Kapur launched his own production house, one project that he had announced, was based on the life of astronaut Rakesh Sharma and the shooting was to go on the floors only after ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’ was complete. It was a 2018 release. Aamir was approached to play Rakesh Sharma, in a conversation started with Siddharth way back in 2016, but the star is not doing the film anymore. They were developing the script but Aamir did not like the way it finally shaped up. Everybody knows that his script sense is brilliant so in that form, so if he does not like a script there has to be something wrong with it. He discussed this with the creative team and conveyed his decision to them. Siddharth understood Aamir’s reasons as he knows that’s how the Aamir works,” told the insider.
Post the above development, the script reached Shah Rukh Khan who agreed to read it and give his feedback. Sources confirmed that he hasn't yet agreed to do the film but there is a strong possibility that he might agree.
Who do you think will play the role of Rakesh Sharma better? Aamir Khan or Shah Rukh Khan?
