Bollywood Actors Turned Down Roles:
Which actor doesn’t want their character to become iconic? All the actors in the Bollywood industry strive to achieve exactly this. They want people to remember their character as long as cinema exists. Once you become a successful actor, your life becomes busy, and it’s not easy for you to go through every script and careful analysis of the character’s potential success in the market. We bet these actors who turned down these Bollywood roles feel miserable after seeing these characters’ immeasurable success.
1. Shah Rukh Khan as Munna Bhai
Can you imagine anyone else other than Sanjay Dutt playing Munna Bhai? We can’t imagine anyone else in his role. He was so natural and talented in this one that we cannot dare to see any other actor in his shoes. SRK was the first choice for this role, but things did not go as planned, and hence we saw Sanjay Dutt creating magic.
2. Salman Khan As Kabir Khan
Chak de India is one of the most beautiful movies you will ever see. Partially because SRK’s role as Kabir Khan was mind-blowing. His voice had that power to make you fall in love with his character. Yes, SRK was not the first choice as Salman Khan was first approached for this film, and because he rejected the role went to the legendary, SRk.
3. Hrithik Rohan as Aakash
Just imagine Hrithik playing the character of Aakash from Dil Chahta hai. Nope, not that convincing, right? The notorious guy who likes to live his life in his terms played by Aamir was the best choice for the role. His character was convincing, and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
4. Katrina Kaif as Leela
Yes, Katrina was the first choice was playing Leela in Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela. Shocked, right? Nope nope, ho can someone else play this sensational character other than Deepika. Thank god Katrina rejected the role, and it straight went to Deepika.
5. Saif Ali Khan as Raj
This one will shock you to the core. You won’t believe that Saif Ali Khan was the first choice for this role. We cannot imagine anyone else apart from SRK as Raj in DDLJ. It’s because of his talent that this role ended up being one of the most lovable characters in the history of cinema.
