Mumbai: The biopic on astronomer Rakesh Sharma was in the news since a very long time for the actors associated with it.
Aamir Khan was supposed to play the lead in this movie, but he reportedly suggested his nemesis Shah Rukh Khan’s name for it.
SRK seems to have come on board on one condition, it being that Aamir give him the research material he previously prepared.
A source told DNA, “King Khan has asked Aamir to help him out with the research he did for the film when he was supposed to do it. Knowing what a perfectionist Aamir is, he must have done detailed research and SRK will only benefit from that.”
Priyanka Chopra too was reportedly going to pick the film as her next Bollywood movie, till Aamir’s name was linked to the project.
Now that Shah Rukh Khan has become the lead for the biopic tentatively titled ‘Salute’, it appears that Piggy Chops might have opted out of the project and chosen to work with Salman Khan in ‘Bharat’.
