Published: 03rd January 2019

Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film, Saare Jahaan Se Accha, a biopic on Indian astronaut Rakesh Sharma, will go on floors in February, a month ahead of its expected schedule.

Directed by Mahesh Matai, Saare Jahaan Se Achcha is produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur. According to reports, sets are being constructed for the film’s first schedule in Film City, Mumbai; the second schedule, which has also been advanced, will be shot on location.

Rakesh Sharma was a former Indian Air Force Pilot, who became the first Indian to venture into space.

Speaking about portraying the National hero on screen, Shah Rukh Khan had earlier said, “I am already wondering how I should bring dignity to the character. Should I copy him? Should I mimic him? Or should I play him differently with his permission? I wish I knew before there was so much to do as an actor.”
