For anyone in doubt, The Outer World implies the world that exists outside our planet. It has been just four months since the year began and as many as three films of the aforementioned genre have already been announced.
The first actor who’s all set to give the viewers a dose of Sci-Fi (Science Fiction) is Sushant Singh Rajput with the tentatively titled Chanda Mama Door Ke. Director Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan announced this ambitious film with Rajput, and R.Madhavan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in pivotal roles as well. All set to release in 2018, this could be another respectable role in all the three actors’ repertoire.
The second one is the Kalpana Chawla biopic and the actor who would be undertaking the responsibility to replicate her fascinating life is none other than Priyanka Chopra. Last seen in Jai Gangaajal in 2016, it’s a treat for all her fans that she has finally signed her next Hindi film. Confirming this news in an interview, Chopra said she would soon start working on the film.
And finally, the last film in the triumvirate is the Rakesh Sharma biopic. Although, there’s no official confirmation yet, reports suggest Aamir Khan is likely to step into the late astronaut’s shoes.
The West has produced some really memorable and classical space films like 2001- A Space Odyssey (1968), Contact (1997), Gravity (2013) and Interstellar (2014), to name a few.
Needless to say nobody can replicate the eminence and repute of these films, but hope we can create our own history with this not-so-very-regular genre.
