Here Are All The Actors Whose Names Have Been Tossed Around For The Rakesh Sharma Biopic
Is Aamir doing it? Is Shah Rukh doing it? Is Shah Rukh not doing it? Is some young actor doing it? Is anyone doing the film? Is the film happening at all? There are just simply too many questions we want to ask about the Rakesh Sharma biopic, but we are just not sure anymore.
We hardly remember the last time there was so much hoopla about the casting of one film. As the makers jump from one actor to another actor and we desperately try to keep track, here are all the names that have been tossed around for the Rakesh Sharma biopic Saare Jaahan Se Achha.
The makers initially developed the script Aamir Khan in mind, but after giving his initial nod Mr. Perfectionist thought it would be a more apt script for Shah Rukh and passed it on to him.
Shah Rukh Khan
When the script landed with Shah Rukh, with Aamir’s recommendation, it was a no-brainer that he was going to do it. However, after the debacle of Zero, it is now entirely uncertain what Shah Rukh is going to do next, the biopic might or might not be a part of it.
After the success of Raazi, Sanju and now Uri, Vicky is the hottest property in town, no doubt. Thus, it was understandable why his name was tossed around for Saare Jahaan Se Accha as well.
Arguably one of the finest actors of his generation, Rajukummar Rao was also being considered to bring back India’s space hero to life.
Ever since the makers decided that they were looking for a young actor to cast for the role of Rakesh Sharma, Kartik Aaryan’s name has been popping up in the discussion as well.
Sushant Singh Rajput
This is a new development, but after playing Dhoni on-screen, Rakesh Sharma might be the second biopic that Sushant would be a part of.
