He is pretty shaken up after Zero's failure: Anjum Rajabali on SRK exiting Saare Jahan Se Achha
Confirming Shah Rukh Khan backing out of astronaut Rakesh Sharma's biopic Saare Jahan Se Achha, Saare Jahaan Se Achha Screenwriter Anjum Rajabali reveals that Zero's failure is the sole reason why SRK opted out of Sharma's biopic. I don't think he said no to Saare Jahan Se Achcha because of space(angle). I think he's also pretty shaken up, he was banking a lot on that, he added. Vicky Kaushal will play the lead in biopic.
