Bollywood producer Siddharth Roy Kapur is a force to reckon with in the film industry. He has given innumerable films that have interesting content and have repeat watch value like Dangal, Barfi, Haider, etc. The filmmaker is keen to make the biopic of astronaut Rakesh Sharma titled Saare Jahan Se Achha. There were numerous rumors that the film might be shelved. Speaking on this Kapur stated, “The film will definitely be made. It is a project that is close to our heart. We would not like to say anything till we go on floors.” 


Saare Jahan Se Achha will be directed by Mahesh Mathai from a script by well known writer Anjum Rajabali. Finding a lead actor to play Sharma’s part has been a tough job. Names like Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Ranbir Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal and even Farhan Akhtar have been doing the rounds but there is no confirmation on who will play the role yet. 


Siddharth also said, “Every film is difficult to make. One has to make sure that you don't lose faith and trust in the story. The story is most important. You need resilience and faith because most great movies get made after going through many ups and downs in the cost of making the movie. And that's what makes them even more special when they finally come to audiences.” Saare Jahan Se Achha will be produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur and Ronnie Screwvala under their production banners Roy Kapur Films and RSVP Films respectively.
