Story of a lazy Sunday morning Shah Rukh Khan and AbRam

The year 2018 ended on a not so great note for Shah Rukh Khan.

The Rakesh Sharma biopic which is reportedly titled "Saare Jahan Se Accha" is finding it hard to go on floors.

Shah Rukh's latest outing "Zero" failed to impress a majority of critics and the negative word of mouth dampened the film's overall collections at the Box Office. Incidentally, SRK had Saare Jaahan se Accha lined up after Zero and was even going to begin shooting in the next month or so.

Aamir Khan was offered the lead role of the film, but due to work commitments, the actor recommended SRK's name for the role.

While no official reason has been cited, speculation is rife that SRK has chosen to commit to Farhan Akhtar's Don 3 instead.

Farhan Akhtar, who had directed the earlier installments of Don, had said that he will soon make a big announcement at the trailer launch of his sister's directorial Gully Boy. 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.
