Priyanka Was Approached For Salute
The actress had confirmed at an event, " I have finalized two-three scripts. Now, I am left to make announcements. Yes, Rakesh Sharma biopic was one of them. I was approached for that film when Aamir was doing it. We were supposed to do in 2019. Now, I don't know, Aamir is not in the film now."
How Shahrukh Came Into The Picture!
Reportedly, Aamir had walked out of the film citing creative differences. Rumours suggested that the superstar bowed out of the project as he is planning to dedicate the next decade of his life to a series of films, which will be part of a franchise (Mahabharata). That's how the film dropped into SRK's lap.
