Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who has been busy with the post-production work of his upcoming film 'Zero', will soon begin shooting for the Rakesh Sharma Biopic. He is expected to begin shooting for biopic after completing Anand L Rai's romantic-drama 'Zero', in which he is playing a dwarf.
Reportedly, the film which was originally titled as 'Salute' has now got a new name. As per the latest updates, the film is now going to be called 'Saare Jahaan Se Achcha'. The movie will depict the life of the Indian astronaut Rakesh Sharma, who was the first Indian to head into outer space.
Back in the year 1984, when the then Indian Prime Minister of India Indira Gandhi asked Rakesh Sharma on his return how the country looked from outer space, he had replied saying - 'Saare Jahan Se Achcha'. Perhaps this could be one of the reasons why the makers have decided to name the film with Sharma's statement.
The film is being produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur's new production house, Roy Kapur Films' that is currently producing Farhan Akhtar and Priyanka Chopra Starrer 'The Sky is Pink'.
