After being on board to be a part of the Rakesh Sharma biopic 'Saare Jahaan Se Acha' for the longest time, Shah Rukh Khan has reportedly quit the movie.
It's rumoured that King Khan has chosen to continue playing Don in 'Don 3' instead of the biopic, but nothing is apparently confirmed since Aamir Khan also recently said, “Isn't Shah Rukh Khan doing that film? Those are only reports, let's wait until he makes an announcement about it.”View this post on Instagram

So, no one knows what's exactly going on. But, now it seems like Vicky Kaushal, Rajkummar Rao, and even Kartik Aaryan are in the running for the role, according to Bollywood Life. All three actors have obviously proven themselves as brilliant actors and it's no surprise that they could be replacing someone like Shah Rukh Khan.
Moreover, on top of this, the recent success of movies by younger and relatively newer actors in contrast with the failures of all the movies by the 'Khans' last year may indicate that the era of the Khans ruling the box office may be over. And, this could also be the reason why after SRK, actors like Vicky Kaushal and Rajkummar Rao will take up the role he was supposed to portray.
But, there's also some bad news for Kartik Aaryan; according to a source, as reported by Bollywood Life, “Kartik is not really considered. The character demands a performer who can pull it off very well. Vicky Kaushal and Rajkummar Rao both have what it takes to play this character.”
But, whoever ends up doing the movie - Vicky or Rajkummar - we all know it's going to be great.
