Shah Rukh Khan has always had the best choice of movies (of course, barring some). Be it the recently released Jawan and Pathaan or Dil Se and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, King Khan is very picky and choosy when it comes to his films. But even our superstar has made some judgment errors over the years.
Since Shah Rukh Khan’s debut in Bollywood, the actor has rejected many films. While some were a good decision, some were a total miss. Today, we list 7 films that were rejected by SRK and the reasons behind them!
From Lagaan to Rang De Basanti, the list will shock you!
7 Films Rejected By Shah Rukh Khan
1. Rang De Basanti
Starring Aamir Khan, Rang De Basanti is a beautiful film and was a big hit when it was released in 2006. Shah Rukh Khan was considered for the guest starring role of the patriotic flight lieutenant, but he chose not to do it. The role was taken over by R Madhavan!
2. 3 Idiots
We just cannot imagine anyone else other than Aamir Khan as Rancho but did you know originally the role was first offered to Shah Rukh Khan. However, SRK did not accept the role and it went to Aamir Khan.
3. Jodhaa Akbar
Jodhaa Akbar was released in 2008 and saw Hrithik Roshan romancing Aishwarya Rai. The film was first offered to Shah Rukh Khan, who let it pass.
4. Kaho Na…Pyaar Hai
Kaho Na…Pyaar Hai marked Hrithik Roshan’s debut. However, dad Rakesh Roshan had Shah Rukh Khan in mind for the role. It was the War actor who convinced him that the world needed to see a fresh face. And, hence began Hrithik’s journey in films!
5. Ek Tha Tiger
Well, Salman Khan is definitely the perfect Tiger and fans cannot imagine anyone else. However, the role of Tiger was first offered to King Khan who could not shoot for the film due to conflicts with dates. As a result, Bhaijaan got the golden opportunity!
6. Munnabhai MBBS
Sanjay Dutt was the perfect fake doctor in Munnabhai MBBS and his iconic role is remembered to date. However, the film was first offered to SRK, who declined it due to multiple reasons!
The film also starred Arshad Warsi alongside Sanjay Dutt.
Another Aamir Khan film that was first offered to Shah Rukh Khan was Lagaan. The actor was approached by director Ashutosh Gowariker for the role of Bhuvan. However, due to scheduling conflicts, Shah Rukh Khan had to drop the hit and memorable film. It was bagged by Aamir later!
On that note, we are super excited to watch Shah Rukh Khan’s next offering, Dunki on the big screens!
