Is the Rakesh Sharma Biopic cast finalised? 

Astronaut Rakesh Sharma's biopic titled 'Saare Jahaan Se Achcha' has been talked about for quite some time now. The film had previously finalised Shah Rukh Khan as Rakesh Sharma but it was later revealed that he has opted out. After the failure of his last venture 'Zero' the actor has opted out from all previously finalised projects in order to make better decisions with his film choices. There have been several rumours that Shah Rukh Khan has walked out of the biopic to prepare for 'Don 3'

The very first choice of the movie was Aamir Khan. He stepped out of the movie for the rumoured magnum opus 'Mahabharat'. The film was later rumoured to have cast Ranbir Kapoor, who opted out due to his hectic schedules for 'Shamshera' and 'Brahmastra.'  Now rumours are saying that producers Ronnie Screwwala and Siddharth Roy Kapur were amazed by Vicky Kaushal’s performance in ‘URI: The Surgical Strike’ and have roped him in for the role. Apparently, Vicky has started preparing for the role already. He wishes to do justice the role of Rakesh Sharma.
