Priyanka Chopra was to play Aamir Khan’s wife in the biopic before Bhumi, Kareena or even Shah Rukh had come into picture. Interestingly, it was not just the cast but even the name of the film was changed. ‘Salute’ was initially titled ‘Saare Jahan Se Achcha’. For those who want to know about astronaut Rakesh Sharma, he is the first Indian man to go to the outer space. All of just 35, Sharma spent 7 days, 21 hours and 40 minutes in space in April 1984. He has been conferred with the Ashoka Chakra and the Hero of Soviet Union. There’s no wonder then that the celebs and cinema stars – be it Bhumi or Shah Rukh – are queuing up to play important roles in this Bollywood biopic, saluting the man behind this, who achieved such an extraordinary feat.
