Wrapping this up, we should tell you that these movies might be Bollywood's first venture into space films, but not Indian cinema's first. Jayam Ravi starrer Tamil film Tik Tik Tik was a space adventure film that released earlier this year. Even Telugu film industry will have a release in this genre before Bollywood. Ravi Teja and Aditi Rao Hyadari starrer Antariksham 9000 kmph will release on December 21.
There was a strong buzz about Sushant Singh Rajput and R Madhavan starring in a space adventure film titled Chanda Mama Door Ke, for which the actors even attended training sessions at NASA's space camp. But the movie seems to have been indefinite;y pushed for now. And how can we forget the trailer of Zero, that strongly suggests that there will be some space-related razzmatazz in the movie?
