Mumbai: Aamir Khan's loss in terms of Rakesh Sharma biopic might just become Shah Rukh Khan's gain. As per reports in DNA, SRK is being considered for the role of Rakesh Sharma, which was initially offered to Aamir.

A Bollywood insider earlier spoke on Aamir’s exit, “When Siddharth Roy Kapur launched his own production house, one project that he had announced, was based on the life of astronaut Rakesh Sharma and the shooting was to go on the floors only after 'Thugs Of Hindostan' was complete. It was a 2018 release. Aamir was approached to play Rakesh Sharma, in a conversation started with Siddharth way back in 2016, but the star is not doing the film anymore. They were developing the script but Aamir did not like the way it finally shaped up. Everybody knows that his script sense is brilliant so in that form, so if he does not like a script there has to be something wrong with it. And while he’s very fond of Siddharth, Aamir is not someone who will do a film if he’s not 100 percent convinced of it. He discussed this with the creative team and conveyed his decision to them. Siddharth understood Aamir’s reasons as he knows that’s how the Aamir works.”

Priyanka Chopra was also supposed to be a part of the project. So if SRK comes on board, can we expect to see SRK-PeeCee together in ‘Salute’ if not in ‘Don 3’?

Earlier it was also reported that Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh might be part of the project. However nothing has been confirmed for the Siddharth Roy Kapur’s production film.
