Its Confirmed: Vicky Kaushal to replace SRK Rakesh Sharma biopic

After a much buzz for the Rakesh Sharma Biopic, we now things settling down. The film which was earlier given to Aamir Khan later went to Shah Rukh Khan’s kitty. However, with lots of ifs and buts, the King of Romance opted out from the film, and now we hear that SRK is not the part of the film as we have the Uri the surgical strike actor Vicky Kaushal will be doing the lead role in it. With SRK’s last film Zero doing average business, the actor has become conscious of his choice of film, and many feel that SRK has left this film only to choose Don 3. But the insiders claim that the script of the don series movie is still not ready.

The makers now have finally decided the star cast, and we have the news of Vicky Kaushal being replaced by SRK and he will be playing the veteran astronaut in the ambitious biopic film. The choice of actor is justified as Rakesh Sharma was only 35 years of age when he went to space and landed the moon. When the then PM of India Mrs. Indira Gandhi asked how did he find India from the space, he said Saare Jahan Se Accha Hindostan Hamara. That gave the name of the biopic film as well. With the Uri star being young of that age group and with his competence he has the potential to play the role the best.

However, the script has been designed and written keeping in mind the Dungal actor Aamir Khan who failed to do the film since he is busy with his ambitious project called Mahabharata where he has the role of Krishna in it. This made him recommend SRK as he did the same to his friend filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker the film Swadesh and King Khan was simply spending in his action in it. Also, we hear that Vicky has collaborated with Karan Johar for his next film Thakt with Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh along with the actresses like Bhumi Pednekar and Jhanvi Kapoor.
