As per a report in Bollywood Hungama, Shah Rukh Khan will start shooting for the movie in September, while the makers will be looking for a 2019 release. The report states that Shah Rukh Khan will shoot for Salute for a month before he takes a break to promote Zero, and then resume shoot after the release.

In an earlier report in DNA, it was stated that Shah Rukh Khan will begin preparations for the movie from this summer itself. A source close to the project revealed, "SRK will wrap Zero by April end, after which he will be busy for the next three months prepping up for his character in Salute. He will be doing his own research with his team and studying the nuances to play the astronaut. That’s why he’s taken a three-month break in between to devote himself fully to the biopic." This will be the first official biopic in Shah Rukh Khan's career.

Apart from Salute, Shah Rukh Khan is also rumoured to be linked with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next, the Vikram Vedha remake and a Yash Raj movie.
