Is Vicky Kaushal set to make it three in a row as far patriotic films are concerned? If the actor’s latest quote is anything to go by, the ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ star has signed ‘Saare Jahan Se Achha’, the biopic on astronaut Rakesh Sharma, after giving his nod to a film based on freedom fighter Udham Singh. The actor did not deny it when asked about the movie recently and left the ball in the makers’ court.
Reports of Vicky starring in the movie have been doing the rounds for a while now, but there has been no confirmation. When asked about the speculation in a recent interview, the actor didn’t deny it and said it was up to the makers to make the announcement. He added that he’d request everyone to wait till then. The 'Manmarziyaan' star's statement more or less confirms that he’s indeed playing the role of the first Indian to venture into space.
‘’Saare Jahan Se Acchha’ has been in the headlines for a long time now. The movie to be directed by Mahesh Mathai, produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Sddharth Roy Kapur was earlier set to star Aamir Khan. However, the actor opted out of it and reportedly suggested Shah Rukh Khan to take it up. It was only recently that the writer of the movie, Anjum Rajabali announced that SRK has also quit because he is ‘shaken up’ by the failure of ‘Zero.’
Vicky has become a household name today with the blockbuster success of ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’, that earned over Rs 240 crore at the domestic box office. Apart from ‘Saare Jahan Se Achha’, he is also rumoured to be doing a horror film for Karan Johar’s banner.
