Shah Rukh Khan was last seen in the film Zero which released on December 21, 2018. The audience had lots of hope from this SRK-Aanand L Rai collaboration. Zero also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles. The film opened to mixed response from the critics as well as the audience. People are in love with the first half of the film however, they are disappointed with the second half.
SRK has given almost 2 years for Rai’s Zero. For a long time, he didn’t reveal which is his next project. While there were rumours for at least a year that he will be doing Rakesh Sharma’s biopic, the superstar confirmed it only recently. Initially, Aamir Khan was supposed to play the role of Indian Air Force Pilot. However, he recommended SRK’s name for the role and now the audience will get to see Shah Rukh as Rakesh Sharma in the film which is titled as Saare Jahaan Se Achcha.
In an interview, the Swades actor thanked Aamir Khan for telling him about the role.
Shah Rukh Khan said, “I thank Aamir who was to do the film for calling me and telling me about the role as it would suit me. Whenever I get the time, I will try and spend time with him (Rakesh Sharma).“
