Priyanka Chopra has confirmed that Aamir Khan is no longer a part of Rakesh Sharma biopic. It was reported that the Mr Perfectionist was essaying the role of Rakesh Sharma, first Indian to travel to space, in the movie which is said to be based on his life.
However, Aamir has now walked out of the movie. The media reports suggest that the Dangal actor took the decision due to creative differences with the team.
While the film's makers are mum about it, Priyanka, who has long been rumored to be playing Sharma's wife in the biopic, said Aamir is not attached to film anymore.
"I have finalized two-three scripts. Now, I am left to make announcements. Rakesh Sharma biopic was one of those scripts. I was approached for that film when Aamir was doing it... He is not in the film now. We were supposed to do it in 2019. Now, I don't know," PeeCee was quoted as saying.
Notably, there has been a buzz that post Aamir's exit, Shah Rukh Khan will be playing the lead role in Rakesh Sharma's biopic.
Talking about the same, Priyanka stated, "I don't know. I haven't got any confirmations. I haven't spoken to Sid (producer Siddharth Roy Kapur) or Mahesh sir. As soon as I know, I will see."
Apparently, Rakesh Sharma's biopic would have been Priyanka's first collaboration with Aamir Khan, but the superstar's exit from the movie, we wonder who will be the male lead in the movie.
Currently, Aamir Khan is busy with Vijay Krishna Acharya's Thugs Of Hindostan which is expected to release on Diwali 2018.
