Salute will be produced by Siddharth Roy Kapoor and the actor has been meeting him for quite a long time now. SRK’s Zero will get wrapped up in few months and whether he will do Salute or not will be confirmed by him soon.

The makers first approached Aamir Khan for the astronaut’s biopic, but as he is busy with Thugs Of Hindostan and future with his long-term project, he himself recommended Shah Rukh’s name to them.

Meanwhile, SRK’s Zero, which also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif, will hit the theatres on 21st December 2018.
