After Dangal, Amir Khan had given his nod for the Rakesh Sharma biopic titled Saare Jahan Se Achcha. However, the actor wants to have a major say in this project. As per a Bollywood Life report, a source revealed, "Amir is not just acting in this film, he is also going to produce the movie under his banner (AKP). While Ronnie Screwala’s company RSVP was to originally produce the film, now they will just be presenting the movie."
The source also added, "He (Amir) has big plans in his mind for the movie and is taking keen interest in every aspect of this film including the casting."
Earlier the makers were to title the film as Salute. But later they changed the movie title to Saare Jahan Se Achcha, taking real life significance to Rakesh Sharma’s space travel because just ahead of his space outing Rakesh uttered these four words ( Saare Jahan Se Achcha) to the then prime minister of India, Indira Gandhi. Amir has already started prepping for this role.
