Even while we rejoice over the empowerment of female actors in films like Hichki, Veere Di Wedding and Raazi there comes the dismaying news that the role of the female actor in Salute, the proposed bio-pic on astronaut Rakesh Sharma, is being pruned down as no major actress is willing to play the part the astronaut’s wife.
For those who came in late, this Rakesh Sharma bio-pic was to star Aamir Khan who opted out. Now Shah Rukh Khan plays the lead in Salute. Apparently, Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor Khan were approached to play Mrs Sharma, but they both felt they would be swamped out in script by the overpowering male protagonist.
The latest on Salute is that the makers have chosen to cut down the leading lady’s part and offer it to a secondary or a new actress. The logic being applied is, why invest so much time energy and money in an A-list heroine when the focus is on Shah Rukh Khan playing Rakesh Sharma?

Rather than see pc on screen or kareena who is past her prime cut the heroine role short. I agree

Another fukcing rumours, I really wants to hide & delete any post that is made about this movie because it is not even confirmed as a movie and it feels irritating to see such posts, but it's against the rule, but I still feel incredibly pissed off after seeing posts related to this movie, seriously stop it, they are all rumours and stop being a fool.
