For the past few days, we have been coming across reports suggesting Shah Rukh Khan is stepping out of Saare Jahaan Se Achcha. The reason for the same was speculated to be the failure of Zero, following which SRK apparently decided to not experiment with roles anymore and choose Don 3 over the space movie. Though writer Anjum Rajabali initially rebuffed the reports, producer Ronnie Screwvala’s recent tweet tells a different tale. The filmmaker’s cryptic tweet hints to something like SRK’s exit from the film.
In what seems to be a dig at the Zero actor, Ronnie emphasised that ‘the difference between success and failure’ is not a better idea but the courage is to ‘take the calculated risk and stick with it’. Well, though the tweet wasn’t directed at anyone, it looks like it did have a message for King Khan. On the other side, rumour mills also say that the makers are now in the hunt for a younger actor to take up the role of astronaut Rakesh Sharma.
This isn’t the first time that a big star has stepped out of the biopic. Previously, it was reported that the film was first offered to Aamir Khan, who rejected it to focus on his upcoming project Mahabharat.
Let’s see who gets roped in as Baadshah’s replacement!
