About Aamir's exit, earlier a Bollywood insider said, “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.”
For now, Shah Rukh is busy working on Anand L Rai’s dwarf movie which also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif. Let’s see if he gives a nod to the Rakesh Sharma biopic. What do you guys think? Tell us below...
