Rakesh Sharma was the first Indian to visit space. A lot of confusions were related with the Rakesh Sharma’s biopic. The movie was announced two years ago, in 2018. At first, Aamir Khan was declared to play the lead role in the movie but he took a step back. This gave way to Shahrukh Khan. However, SRK also backed out from the movie as his last movie Zero, which was also based on space turned out to be a fiasco. The project has now been passed to Farhan Akhtar.
Saare Jahaan Se Acchha:
The movie is titled as “Saare Jahaan Se Acchha.” The movie is being scripted by Anjum Rajabali. It is helmed by famous ad-filmmaker Mahesh Mathai. A report says that since Farkhan Akhtar gave a tremendous performance in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Mahesh deemed it best that the character of Rakesh Sharma should be played by Farhan Akhtar.
Due to the film, Farhan Akhtar will have to go through a few physical transformations. The makers of the biopic await the ZNMD actor to finish his prior commitments and get on board with them. Sources say that it is because of Farhan’s height’s resemblance with Rakesh made them cast him. They also believe that the actor’s body structure also fits best with the requirements. Farhan will also have to undergo physical training and understand what being an astronaut is.
The report says, “The script with the dialogue draft is locked. With the lead actor on board now, they will proceed towards getting together an ensemble cast and then work on the timeline of the shoot.”
The marvellous actor is one of a kind in Bollywood who has done terrific acting in movies like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, The Sky is Pink, Dil Chahta hai, Dil Dhadakne Do and many more. Farhan’s next release is Toofan, which is also directed by the Bhaag Milkha Bhaag director.
