Fans have waited an inordinate amount of time to hear the news announcing the next project of Shah Rukh Khan. The superstar was last seen in his home production Zero (2018) which failed to create any spark at the box-office. The failure of the mega-budgeted project hit SRK so hard that he is being extra cautious in choosing his next.

Speculation about him joining forces with hit South Indian filmmaker Atlee have been doing the rounds for a really long time, but there has been no announcement confirming any project. Buzz also has it that Khan might collaborate with ace filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani on an upcoming film. But all this remains nothing but mere speculations until an official announcement is made.

When Zero was racing towards its release in 2018, several reports had surfaced claiming that the superstar would next team up with Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur for one of their most ambitious projects, titled Salute. The latest we hear that the much-delayed film is being revived and Fatima Sana Shaikh, who shot to fame after delivering a powerful performance in the biographical sports drama Dangal (2016), might join the superstar as the female lead.

While the buzz around the project died down a time long ago, this new development indicates that Shah Rukh Khan is returning to headline Salute. For the uninitiated, Salute is a space odyssey film based on the life of Squadron Leader Rakesh Sharma, the first Indian in space.

The big-ticket project is being produced by well-known producers Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur. It has been written by Anjum Rajabali.

More details are expected to arrive soon.
