Bollywood appears to be currently obsessed with biopics of famous personalities. And considering the recent course, even the audience seems to be impressed. Following this trend, a biopic on the first Indian astronaut (Rakesh Sharma) to head into outer space is being made and Shah Rukh Khan will be essaying the personality.
The biopic was earlier rumoured to be titled Salute, however, now it is going to be called Saare Jahaan Se Achcha.
The movie is being produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur’s new production house – Roy Kapur Films – that is currently producing The Sky is Pink starring Farhan Akhtar and Priyanka Chopra.
While the official reason behind the title has not been announced, it could be because when Indira Gandhi asked Rakesh Sharma on his return how India looked from outer space, he replied ‘Saare Jahan Se Achcha’.
An official announcement of the project is presumed to be made by the end of the year and the film will probably go on floors in February.
Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan is currently busy in his upcoming film Zero which is slated to release on December 21.
