Salute to go on floors as confirmed by Siddharth Roy Kapur. Official Announcement Soon!

Siddharth Roy Kapur, the producer of the biopic of the Indian astronaut 'Rakesh Sharma' ‘ Salute’ said, “We should be starting it quite soon. It’s all on track but I will prefer to make an official announcement.” Mr. Kapur stated this in a recent media interaction.

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is most likely to star in the film. ‘Salute’ will be directed by Mahesh Mathai. The biopic also aims to show the astronauts relationship with his wife, along with his heroic journey to space.

According to reports the producer lays down the unavoidable challenges of making a film, regardless of the genre. Biopics require a different challenge from any other genres because the story needs to be true to the life of a person and one cannot take liberty in making something completely different from his actual life.

He further added that biopics unlike other genres gives one the opportunity tell a true story of heroism. There are many unsung heroes in our country (India) and they deserve a bio pic in their life. Heroes are not only arising from sports, politics and cinema and one should use this as an inspiration to make movies on them.

Kapur also vocalized about the trend of biopics in Bollywood, “I think it’s always important to see the quality of a film. So, regardless of whether it’s a biopic or a horror film or a comedy film or an action film, if it is a good film, it is going to run. So, I don’t think that there is a trend of biopics, but yes, there have been many successful ones of late, and very often people tend to gravitate towards making those films much more.”

The producer’s recent works include films like Dangal (2016), Mohenjo Daro (2016), Fitoor (2016), and Jagga Jasoos (2017).

We can expect the official announcement on this project anytime soon. Stay tuned for further details.
