Mumbai: Not too long ago, it was reported that Shah Rukh Khan has walked out of Rakesh Sharma biopic as he is not too keen on doing a ‘Space related’ film after the debacle of ‘Zero’. Post SRK’s exit, the makers of the film are already hunting for a new star to come on board. According to sources, Rajkummar Rao and Vicky Kaushal are in the forefront to replace Shah Rukh Khan in Rakesh Sharma biopic titled ‘Saare Jahaan Se Achha’.
Confirming the same, a source close to the project told a leading portal, “The character demands a performer, who can pull it off very well. Rajkummar Rao has what it takes to play this character.”
On the work front, Rajkummar Rao had a fantastic 2018. The actor had 5 releases last year viz. Omerta, Fanney Khan, Stree, Love Sonia and 5 Weddings out of which Stree became his first 100 crore film. Right now, Rajkummar is looking forward to the release of ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga’ which also stars Sonam Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and Juhi Chawla.
Apart from ‘ELKDTAL’, Rao will be seen in films like ‘Mental Hai Kya’, ‘Made In China’ and ‘Shimla Mirchi’and the Bengali film ‘Ami Saira Bano’.
