The year 2018 ended on a not so great note for Shah Rukh Khan. After the debacle of Anand L Rai's Zero at the box office, Shah Rukh Khan has been rethinking his choices. As per reports in entertainment portals, Shah Rukh Khan has made a hard pass at the Rakesh Sharma biopic Saare Jaahan se Accha. In fact, reports state that he may have chosen Don 3 over the mighty biopic. Incidentally, SRK had Saare Jaahan se Accha lined up after Zero and was even going to begin shooting in the next month or so. 

However, as per reports, the superstar has backed out of the film completely and the makers are now thinking of casting someone else in the lead. The Don franchise helmed by Farhan Akhtar may be the reason behind this. At the Gully Boy trailer launch, Farhan Akhtar had revealed that he would be making a big announcement soon. Speculations are rife that this 'big announcement' will be about Don 3 and SRK, who has been part of the earlier films, will naturally be a part of this one as well.

Initially, Aaamir Khan was approached to play the lead in Saare Jahaan Se Achcha. However, due to prior work commitments the actor had to opt put and he recommended SRK's name. For the unversed, the movie is based on the life of India’s first astronaut Rakesh Sharma and the movie will be helmed by Mahesh Mathai. Reportedly, the movie will go on floors in March and the sets are already being built at Film City in Mumbai. We will have to wait and see whether SRK works on both the films or chooses Don 3. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.

SRK wants to be with his ladylove after all

The reason Don and Don 2 were such compelling, enjoyable movies was the gender role reversal where Roma was the actual hero of the movie. She was a much better written character, had a back story, looked jaw droppingly gorgeous (the best PC has ever looked), and was a much, much better fighter in the action scenes than Don. Don 3 without Roma makes just no sense at all. PV please post. There is nothing disparaging or negative in my comment.

PC is the best action star in India, male or female. Only Taapsee Pannu probably comes close to her.

You have made the right decision SRK, as the biopic was a commercial disaster waiting to happen. Please do don 3 instead opposite Priyanka and than do sanjay leela bhansali next film opposite Aishwarya.

This man doesnt take lessons from his failures

He's so obviously adrift, feel bad for him. His script sense has gone missing for the last decade, ever since MNIK every one of his films have been disappointing. His performances have been fine but the stories have been total nonsense. Focus on the scripts SRK, enough with the VFX experiments, they aren't working and are losing boatloads of money. The audience supports good scripts now.

100% agree with comments below..SRK needs new management ASAP. He needs help in selecting potboilers and commercial films with GOOD scripts..like Sultan or Dabangg 1 and balance that with gritty films like Baby or Andhadun (on a slightly bigger budget). Experimentation is fine but the script HAS to be ready before he signs on!!

Srk will never learn from his mistakes as usual and he left good scripts just did in past

The best news I have heard this year in Bollywood. I hope and wish this is true. Farhan can make Don 3 with both SRK and Roma. He needs to write a stellar script which doesn’t show them in the same frame but they play a psychological cat n mouse game with each other. Very much possible. It will be the biggest blockbuster in years. I don’t think if it’s done this way, there would be anyone in India or globally who wouldn’t watch this film.

Congratulations Shahrukh Khan, may don 3 be the biggest hit of the year.

Shahrukh Khan needs like a new manager to control him, someone who will actually look at what fans want for stuff like heroine, storyline, etc. and let directors direct instead of letting him seize the whole project as the producer.

I’m sure don 3 without priyanka will be the biggest flop.

I have said gazillion times Don cannot mezmerize without the Roma cat and mouse dynamic, Farhan shot himself in the foot by creating the most powerful duo on the screen, lit it up, too bad they cannot repeat it no Roma no Don

Glad ..Shahrukh back to commercial & that's where he belongs to ..he tried different roles with different directors(moved from KJo and Adi Chopra) but it didn't work..6 years of struggle ..but finally he's back to which made the Superstar that he is today !

PC got bad reviews for Don3 they cant bring her back thank God.

I don't think ShahRukh can do anybody's biopic. Biopics are are about somebody else
entirely. His stardom, persona whatever one calls it is too huge to allow him to be anybody else. Sadly he has stopped being an actor long ago...now he is only Shah Rukhs employee like he himself once said ..

SRK is ca 2 decades too old to play the role anyway. It was yet another vanity project and it should have never seen the light of day with SRK.

not a good movie .don 2 got mixed reviews .i dont if don 3 will be good cuz all the action movies failed this year except for simmba and it was in christmas

Will only be interested in Don 3 if Priyanka is in it. No Priyanka, no interest

I saw Don and Don 2 only for PC's mind blowing action scenes. I have no interest in seeing it without her either. I wish Farhan would carry on the series with her as the central character.
