Shah Rukh Khan has made us all happy by signing his first ever biopic ‘Salute’ based on Rakesh Sharma.
The latest report suggests that Shah Rukh Khan has already locked his dates for Salute. The biopic is based on Rakesh Sharma, the Indian Air Force pilot who flew Soyuz T-11. Mahesh Mathai will direct the film under the production of Siddharth Roy Kapur.
Earlier on, it was revealed by a source close to the project that, “Shah Rukh will begin prep for the film in September and will shoot for two months straight until November-end.” However, now that SRK has officially signed the project, he has decided for the film to go on floors this October, itself.
The source also added that the Superstar will take a one month break to promote his movie Zero in between his Salute shooting schedule. The entire shoot will go on until the middle of next year 2019.
The source further revealed, “He will resume shooting in January. The film is expected to release in 2019 and the makers are presently finalizing the leading lady.” Even though, it was originally Priyanka Chopra to be rolled into the play, now the makers are still finalizing a suitable face for the superstar.
Shah Rukh Khan has recently wrapped the shooting of Zero which is directed by Aanand L Rai and stars Katrina Kaif , Anushka Sharma along side.
We are already excited for Shah Rukh Khan’s first biopic, as it will be a new genre where he will step in. Aamir Khan has done a biopic already with Dangal and has set the benchmark quite high. We are super sure that even Shah Rukh Khan will be doing a fantabulous performance with Salute.
We wish him all the best for the project. What do you all think about Shah Rukh Khan’s first biopic Salute? Let us know the comments section.
