It looks like the Shahrukh Khan starrer Rakesh Sharma biopic Salute might be delayed by a month as SRK would be busy completing Aanand L Rai's Zero. Yes, Salute was first scheduled to go on floors in September 2018 and now the film-makers have postponed it to October 2018 as they want Shahrukh Khan to be completely free while shooting for Salute as the storyline revolves around space and astronomy and they don't want to risk anything.
DNA quoted a source as saying, "SRK's dates for Salute are yet to be locked. After the dates are finalised and the cast has been signed on, the film's makers will make an official announcement. Though the movie was initially planned to go on floors this September, it is now being deferred by a month and will begin only in October."
Salute Was First Offered To Aamir Khan & Then SRK
The film-makers approached Aamir Khan for Salute at the beginning and when he backed off, Shahrukh Khan grabbed it with open arms.
