Astronaut Rakesh Sharma’s biopic has been in the news from the past few years. The first time we heard about the film was in 2018. The biopic is tentatively titled as Saare Jahaan Se Accha and will be directed by Mahesh Mathai and produced by Ronnie Screwvala.

Well, there have been multiple reports about the actors starring in the film. But till now, the makers have not yet made an official announcement about it.

Today, let’s look at the list of actors who have been considered to play Rakesh Sharma in Saare Jahaan Se Accha…

Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan was the first choice to star in the biopic. The actor had heard the narration and loved the script but couldn’t do it because of his other projects. However, Aamir suggested Shah Rukh Khan’s name to the makers and he even called and told SRK to do the film.
