I seriously thought SJSA will turn around SRK's track record because finally we'll see him doing good scripts with the patriotic angle. Bad decision SRK.

Emraan Hashmi

Aamir Khan is no. One choice. Bcoz he is the one can transform well for this role. Otherwise Raj kumar Tap is 2 nd choice. Sharukh wants only role like Don 3 which is very safe . Rakesh sharma role will earn him place in history . He is a loser currently. He also lost Lagaan to Aamir. Oscar one

Ayushmann or Varun would be good for this role

I guess after zero debacle,srk doesn't want anything to do with space! Anyways SRK's loss

OMG vicky kaushal for sure!!!!!!

Rajkummar Rao looks more closer to Rakesh Sharma. No one can justify this role better than him.

rajkummar rao..he is a genious

What is wrong with SRK. This biopic sounds promising.

Yes bro this is something that amazed me most! He should have done this movie.

Rajkummar Rao

Rajkummar Rao. He's the best.

Lol srk why are you not cautious while choosing films like zero, happy new year, dilwale..stupid decision to let go of this film now

Vicky kaushal

Srk should consider retirement before wasting more resources.!
