One of the most interesting aspects of an Indian film project coming together is that majority of the times that the cast acting on the big screen was not the creator’s first choice. Sometimes you cannot imagine a film with the current actors in it, but there are times you still wonder how the film would have panned out with the first choice of the cast. Discussing some famous roles that were rejected by some celebrities, we are back with another interesting edition of Humor Nation.
So Let’s Take A Look At 8 Famous Bollywood Stars Who Rejected Famous Movie Roles That You Had No Idea About!
8. Twinkle Khanna In Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998)
One of the very famous, iconic, and best romantic films of the 90’s is Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. It has characters that people can still relate with and music that people still sing out loud. The romantic film tales the love story of Rahul and Anjali which takes place over several years. The interesting aspect of the film is that Rani Mukerji’s role of Tina was initially offered to Karan Johar’s first love and best friend Twinkle Khanna. However Twinkle refused the role of Tina and it went to Rani who played it effortlessly.
7. Deepika Padukone In Kick (2014)
The remake of the Telgu action film ‘Kick’ in which Salman Khan starred in the leading role. The Hindi remake was a hit at the box office and did exceptional business. The movie was filled with typical Salman Khan action masala sequences and his catchy one line catchy dialogues. Randeep and Nawaz did an amazing job in the supporting roles. What many people might not know is that the first choice for the female lead in the film was not Jacqueline Fernandez, but it was offered to Deepika Padukone. Keeping in the mind the physical demand of action sequences from the character, it would be interesting to see Salman and Deepika together.
6. Hrithik Roshan In Hum Tum (2002)
One of the most successful films of the early 2000s was the romantic comedy film ‘Hum Tum’ which starred Rani Mukerji and Saif Ali Khan in the leading roles. The film was loosely based on the English classic film ‘When Harry Met Sally’. This Kunal Kapoor project focused on two characters and their love equations over so many years. Saif Ali Khan was not the original choice for the lead, the film was initially offered to Hrithik Roshan. Hrithik did ‘Mujhse Dosti Karoge’ with Kunal Kohli which was a disaster so he was kinda skeptical of the project. And the role went to Saif Ali Khan.
