Will Bhumi Pednekar star opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Salute?

Shah Rukh Khan, who will play the role of the Indian Astronaut Rakesh Sharma in ‘Salute’, the cast of the film is yet to be confirmed. The search for the female lead has begun and the makers of the film seem to cast Bhumi Pednekar as the opposite lead. It has been reported that the script has already been discussed with Bhumi, but they haven’t finalized their decision.  Since, the screen time of the female lead in the biopic won’t be much; none of the bigger actresses are showing interests.

Before King Khan was approached, the same role was offered to Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan who refused the role due to reasons best known to both Aamir and makers.

If Bhumi is signed for this film,  it will be the first time she would share screen with SRK.  She has done films like Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Shubh Mangal Savdhaan and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha in the past. Her role in the popular web series Lust Stories was also appreciated. She is indeed a talented actress, and we hope there is an official announcement soon regarding her role.

The film will be directed by Mahesh Mathai. The biopic also aims to show the astronaut’s relationship with his wife, along with his heroic journey to space.

Further updates are yet to be announced.  Stay tuned.
