A biopic on Indian astronaut Rakesh Sharma is delayed for so long. Titled as Saare Jahan Se Accha, the film will tell the story of first Indian in space. Initially Shahrukh Khan was roped in to play the lead, however, he backed out of the project after his film Zero bombed at the box office. Even before SRK, Aamir was offered the role but he suggested SRK's name. Reports were making rounds that either Rajkummar Rao or Vicky Kaushal will play the lead. However, Rajkummar confirmed that he has not been approached by the makers. Now the reports have confirmed that Vicky Kaushal has been approached for the film, and he is most likely to come onboard. Meanwhile, Uri has crossed 230 crores at the domestic box office.
