A source had disclosed to the media people, “Aamir strongly recommended the Rakesh Sharma biopic to Shah Rukh as a script worth walking that extra mile for. More so, since Aamir intends to devote a substantial period of his time to a very dear project of his, presumably the Mahabharat, and has stopped accepting any other assignments currently.”

In the meantime, Zero is proposed to hit theaters on December 21, 2018.
