Highest grossing blockbuster films rejected by Bollywood actors!
Have you ever imagined Hrithik Roshan as Mohan Bhargav in 'Swades' or Salman Khan in 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge' but sadly they rejected these roles after reading the scripts. Well, there are plenty of Bollywood superstars who have turned down iconic roles in blockbuster movies and then later regretted their decisions, but few of them believed that they paved the way to stardom for others. So, let's have a look at the list of top Bollywood actors who turned down several blockbuster films.
'Baazigar' (1993), 'Race' ( 2008), and 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' (2013) are some of the few films which were rejected by Akshay Kumar.
Kangana Ranaut reportedly rejected popular movies like 'Sultan', 'Rustom', 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', 'Airlift', 'The Dirty Picture', among others.
'Thugs of Hindustan', 'Neerja', 'Saaho', 'Raabta', and 'Golmaal Again' are some films that did well at the Box office but were rejected by Alia Bhatt.
'Baazigar', 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge', 'Chak De India', 'Ghajini' are few film names that were turned down by Salman Khan.
Kareena Kapoor Khan
'Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai', 'Goliyo Ki Rasleela - Ram Leela', 'Chennai Express', 'Black', 'Queen' are some movie names which were rejected by Kareena Kapoor Khan.
No doubt that Deepika Padukone is the numero uno queen of Bollywood with a long list of successful films to her credit. But still, she declined many projects such as 'Rockstar', 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan', 'Sultan', 'Dhoom 3', 'Kick', 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo', and more.
Sushant Singh Rajput
Even in the short span of seven years, Sushant Singh Rajput has turned down several hits for unknown reasons. His rejected films include 'Ram Leela', Bajirao Mastani, Fitoor, 'Half Girlfriend' and espionage thriller 'Romeo Akbar Walter'.
In the career span of 20 years of her Bollywood career, the actress has turned down many movies but 'Bharat', 'Cocktail', 'Heroine', 'Ghajini' are those films which apparently made the actress think twice before rejecting films.
There are approximately 8 hits films that were rejected by Aamir Khan and later on become Blockbusters. His rejected film list includes 'Sajaan', 'Hum Aapke Hai Koun', 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge', 'Mohabbatein', 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'.
