Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is extremely busy promoting his film Zero. After wrapping up the promotions, the actor will move on to his next ambitious project Salute by mid next year. A source close to the actor reveals, “Shah Rukh will begin the prep work for Salute by Feb 2019 and the actor has already blocked his dates from May 2019 for Salute. The first schedule of the film will go on floors by mid-May 2019.”
Directed by Mahesh Mathai and produced by Ronnie Screwwala and Siddharth Roy Kapur, Salute is a biopic on astronaut Rakesh Sharma. When former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi asked Rakesh Sharma how India looked from outer space, he said ‘Saare Jahan Se Achcha’ in response. However, the title of the film still remains unconfirmed. Earlier, Aamir Khan was supposed to be a part of this project but the actor backed out of this film due to other commitments.
Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film Zero is all set to the screens in December this year. In the film, SRK will play the role of Bauua Singh — a vertically challenged character. The film also stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.
