What next after Zero for Shah Rukh Khan? The question has been haunting every SRK fan, and the superstar is not ready to answer that. SRK refuses to confirm the next project, after he is done with the Aanand L Rai movie. But that hasn't stopped the rumours from speculating all the projects he has given his nod to. The strongest vibes being given out are for the Rakesh Kumar biopic, Salute, that Aamir Khan was initially supposed to before he passed on the project to Shah Rukh Khan.

As per earlier reports, Shah Rukh Khan was supposed to prep up for playing India's first astronaut who walked in space from May. But now as per a report in Mumbai Mirror, the actor will start doing so from September now, with the shoot beginning from November. A source close to the development told the newspaper, "Shah Rukh will begin prep for the film in September and will shoot for two months straight until November-end (he will take a month'long break to promote Zero, which is releasing on December 21). He will resume shooting in January. The film is expected to release in 2019 and the makers are presently finalising the leading lady.” There are also speculations that the movie won't be called Salute anymore; instead, it will be called Saare Jahaan Se Achcha.


Salute is reportedly produced by Sidharth Roy Kapur and is directed by Mahesh Mathai. Mathai has only made two movies till now, the Kay Kay Menon-starrer Bhopal Express that came out in 1999, and the English film, Broken Thread.
