Aamir Khan has said that he is really happy that Shah Rukh Khan is doing the space film Saare Jahaan Se Accha, which has been written by Anjum Rajabali.Aamir Khan spoke to the media at the grand finale of 2nd edition of Cinestaan India’s Storyteller Script Contest 2018 along with writers Juhi Chaturvedi and Anjum Rajabali in Mumbai. Aamir who had earlier collaborated with Anjum Rajabali for Ghulam, was supposed to be a part of Saare Jahaan Se Achha, which is based on Indian astronaut Rakesh Sharma.However, Aamir backed out of the film and now Shah Rukh Khan will feature in it.Talking about it, Aamir said, “I think it’s a great and wonderful script. I am a huge fan of Rakesh Sharma and it’s a wonderful story.”I feel sad that I am not able to do it, which is why I actually called up Shah Rukh and said that it’s a wonderful story and you should hear it’. I am really happy that he liked it and he is doing it so, all my best wishes for their project

“‘Saare Jahaan Se Achha will go on floors in February and I have been very excited about the film because like Aamir said, I have also been a big fan of Rakesh and now he is a good friend also,” said Rajabali.”Frankly, I was very keen that Aamir should do the film. He liked the script, we discussed it a lot and we had a lot of hopes about it. Unfortunately, Aamir is consumed with a larger project called Mahabharat.”Saare Jahaan Se Accha will be directed by Mahesh Mathai. Ronnie Screwvala will produce the film, along with Siddharth Roy Kapur, under the RSVP films and Roy Kapur Films banners respectively.There were reports that Bhumi Pednekar has been signed opposite Shah Rukh in the film, but Screwvala recently told media that an official announcement on casting will be made soon.
