So, we told you that Aamir called up Priyanka Chopra asking her to release her dates which she had allotted for the Rakesh Sharma biopic opposite him.

Yes, Priyanka had signed on the dotted line. While sections of the media chose to run Priyanka's inclusion as a speculation, has it that Priyanka had signed on the dotted line.

Aamir told her that she longer needed to block dates for the biopic as the film was not happening in near future as he was quitting it. Reason- his newfound passion to make Mahabharata in 5 parts.

Priyanka was mighty upset as she had been excited about acting opposite Mr Perfectionist for the first time. Though she did not argue with Aamir, but she did ask the reason.

As things stand today, Aamir is not a part of the Salute, the tentative name for Rakesh Sharma biopic. He’s not in it, either as an actor or as a co-producer.

Gossip mills- as usual- had been working overtime that Aamir and Siddharth had "creative differences" over the film. had rubbished these rumours, as just rumours in our story No Differences With Vidya Balan's SRK, Here's Why Aamir Khan Won't Play Astronaut Rakesh Sharma, dated December 10, 2017.

So now, is Priyanka definitely not doing the film?

No, Priyanka is not on Sidharth Roy Kapur's radar. The cast for the replacement has begun in full earnest.

We guess, Priyanka is aware of it. Last heard, she was dearly ruing the fact that she lost out on a big opportunity to work with Mr Perfectionist.

This was the film she so much wanted to announce before leaving back for the US. Tsk! Tsk!
