10 Famous Bollywood Stars Who Turned Down Hollywood Films

6. Priyanka Chopra In Immortals

Now Priyanka Chopra has become a global sensation with her hit TV Show ‘Quantico’ and her performances in films like Baywatch. But the actress was presented with the opportunity to become a global star much earlier when she was offered a role in ‘Immortals’. The actress was working on the Indian film ‘7 Khoon Maaf’ so she said to the role. The role ultimately went on to Frieda Pinto who nailed the role.

7. Hrithik Roshan In The Pink Panther 2

The role of ‘Vicente’ in ‘The Pink Panther 2’ was offered to the charming Hrithik Roshan, but he happily rejected the offer. It is notable that the Indian actress Aishwarya Rai played an important role in the film. It would have been fun to see the ‘Dhoom 2’ pair sharing the screen again in Hollywood.

8. Irrfan Khan In Interstellar

It takes nerves of steel to say no to the genius Christopher Nolan. I mean who in the right mind would pass on an opportunity to work with one of the greatest film directors of all time? Indian actor Irrfan Khan was offered to play an important role in the Sci-fi film ‘Interstellar’, but the role required him to camp and stay in US for 4-5 months. Irrfan already had films like ‘The Lunchbox’ and ‘D-Day’ to finish so humbly said no to the opportunity. The role ultimately went to Matt Damon.
