Creative and talented actors makes a movie which is evergreen and lives forever in the hearts of the audience.

But have you ever thought that how these directors know that the star is meant to play the specific role which can earn him success and ofcourse a big bank balance

Well!! let us tell you today , that the directors have a specific mindset about the actors and they approach them but it’s not necessary that the stars have that free dates to sign the movie or they don’t like the script. So the R&D goes from one specific actor to another

Our today’s story revolves around the actors who initially denied to work in the movie and it got a blockbuster one.

Farhan Akhtar

Farhan Akhtar was offered to take on the parallel lead role in the movie Gold. However, he denied of being seen parallel to Akshay . He , after playing a lead in a sports film like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag was least interested in the movie.

Ranbir Kapoor

I must say ,Ranbir Kapoor just lost the chance to be the part of the magical movie Gully Boy, directed by Zoya Akhtar. He didn’t want to be casted with Ranveer .Then finally Siddhant Chaturvedi played the character.

Saif Ali Khan

The blockbuster hit film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, initially was framed keeping in mind the handsome and witty actor Saif but he refused to play the second lead .It was finally done by Salman Khan and rest is history..

Salman Khan

Salman refused Kal Ho Na Ho . Again , the same thought process .. he didn’t want to be the second one in the movie. Saif took the role and came out with flying colors. Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar have worked together for 6 films. Kal Ho Naa Ho bagged a lot of appreciation .

Shahrukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan refused to play the second fiddle in the movie Rang De Basanti since he never wanted to play such a petite role in the film. The role was of the Air Force pilot that went to Madhavan.


It is quite surprising to know that Karisma Kapoor was the fifth choice for the role of Nisha in Dil to Pagal Hai. Kajol was next in line after Juhi to refuse the role as a second lead.

Vidya Balan

Vidya Balan also didn’t want to be the reserved one in the movie so she refused the role in the movie ‘Shoot Out At Wadala’ saying that she never wanted to be overshadowed in a film dominated by so many actors. She was offered to play don Manya Surve’s girlfriend which was later played by Kangana.

Hritik Roshan

Even after playing Shah Rukh’s brother in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, the actor refused to be the second lead opposite Shah Rukh in two movies – Swades and Main Hoon Na which were a big hit at the box-office.

Juhi Chawla

After the super hit movie Darr , the director wanted to cast Juhi against SRK in Dil To Pagal Hai . However, she denied to be the second lead against Madhuri and refused the offer.
