Aamir Khan to play the role of Rakesh Sharma now!

Aamir Khan, Rakesh Sharma

So, soon we are going to see Aamir Khan play the role of Rakesh Sharma! Yes, the last time we saw him play the role of Mahavir Phogat, he simply left the audience startled, this time we believe he is going to make us show stars and moon in broad daylight! Here, quite literally, as he will be playing the role of the man who was the first one to go in space and spend 7 days 21 hours and 40 minutes in the aboard the Salyut 7 Orbital Station conducting scientific research and studies. The movie will be produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur and Aamir Khan jointly and will be titled salute. It is approximately after 34 years, that someone has taken up the task of bringing back the magical moment on screen.

Rakesh Sharma's space moment was best remembered for his televised news conference with the then prime minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi. When she asked him how India looked up from the space, the astronaut without any hesitance quickly said "Saare Jaahan Se Achcha." This line was first chosen as the title of the movie, but soon it changed to Salute! A source close to the actor said to a leading daily "Sid had approached Aamir with the script of his last film and this time too he went straight to him. The 2018 film will be made under his newly-launched banner RK Films (Roy Kapur Films). It will be directed by Mahesh Mathai," A word from Aamir Khan will sure be awaited on this one!
