When Aamir pulled out of the film, astronaut Rakesh Sharma was not amused. Rakesh had thought, that in Aamir, he had found an excellent actor and a perfect match to portray him on screen. However, Aamir decided to set up the stage to ensure the project does not suffer after his exit. Aamir strongly felt that the person who would do equal justice to Salute as him, is Shah Rukh Khan. Aamir called SRK and told him why he was leaving the project and that he would love it, if he could take up the film.
SRK loved the role and story. It was as good as confirmed, from his side.
