Before the release of Zero, it was reported that Shah Rukh Khan's next will be Astronaut Rakesh Sharma's biopic which is titled as Saare Jahaan Se Achcha. Though it wasn't officially announced, Shah Rukh Khan too had confirmed that he's doing the biopic and Aamir Khan, who was earlier approached for the film, too confirmed that Shah Rukh Khan will be doing this film.
In fact, even after the underperforming response to his last film Zero, Shah Rukh Khan had maintained that he'll be starting the movie soon. The film's producer Siddharth Roy Kapur had stated in an interview that an official announcement will be made soon.
However, a couple of days back the internet was abuzz with stories which stated that Shah Rukh Khan has opted out of the movie and will now start the shooting for Don 3. Soon, the news spread like a wildfire and many entertainment portals even started reporting who might replace Shah Rukh Khan for the lead role.
But shutting all the rumors, Saare Jahaan Se Achcha writer Anjum Rajabali, straightaway denied all the reports of Shah Rukh Khan quitting the movie. In a telephonic interview with a leading daily, Anjum replied; No, it’s fake news.
Well, this must have made the day of all the SRKians across the globe. Shah Rukh Khan is still a part of Saare Jahaan Se Achcha and it looks like we can expect an official announcement about the movie soon. As far as Don 3 is concerned, for now, there is no official announcement from the makers about the movie.
At the trailer launch of Gully Boy, Farhan Akhtar had teased everyone about a special announcement which led many to believe that it might be about Don 3 but it looks to be about his upcoming boxing drama Toofan with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.
