A new biopic is on it’s way and the audience can’t wait. The next biopic will be made on India’s first astronaut Rakesh Sharma, titled Saare Jahan Se Acha. The story behind the slogan ‘Saare Jahan Se Acha’ is when Rakesh Sharma went to the space, Indira Gandhi was the Prime Minister of the country at that time. When Indira Gandhi asked Rakesh Sharma while he was still in space through satellite ‘How does India look from up above?’, Rakesh Sharma replied ‘Saare Jahan Se Acha’ and thus from then this slogan became very popular. Even patriotic song on this slogan have been made ‘Saare Jahan Se Acha Hindustan Humara’.
Earlier news was going around that Shahrukh Khan was to play Rakesh Sharma, but then he had to quit. Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur were then considering casting Vicky Kaushal to play Rakesh Sharma but somehow that didn’t work out too. It is now heard that Kartik Aaryan, who delivered a big hit in 2018 ‘Sonu Ki Titu Ka Sweety’ would be playing the legendary Rakesh Sharma.
After Shahrukh Khan’s exit, Ronnie Screwvala and Sidharth Roy Kapur wanted to cast a younger face to play Rakesh Sharma. The story revolves around the legendary astronaut who was the first Indian to go to space. He was on 35 years of age at the time.
