Five Blockbusters That Aamir Khan Handed Out To Shah Rukh Khan
There are some unbelievable stories in Bollywood. One of them is how some of the best feature films land in the lap of other stars because the other star refused to do it for various reasons.
Believe it or not, some of the best films that have been done by Shah Rukh Khan were offered to Aamir Khan first and he rejected it, similarly like Aamir Khan rejected Saare Jahan Se Achha and it landed in the lap of Shah Rukh Khan. However, reports abound that he has postponed the project too. Here are five films that were done by Shah Rukh Khan after being rejected by Aamir Khan.
Aamir Khan was not entirely convinced about playing a villain, hence Yash Chopra went to Shah Rukh Khan with the script. Rest is history.
2. Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge
Would you believe it that Shah Rukh Khan got the film after both Aamir Khan and Salman Khan rejected it. There were several reasons for the rejection but date issues were among the principal reasons.
3. Dil Toh Pagal Hai
Another Yashraj movie that went to Shah Rukh after a misunderstanding between Aamir about the role played by Akshay Kumar. In the end, Aamir again backtracked from doing the film.
This was very ironic. Aamir chose to do Mela and gave all the dates there despite Yash Chopra requesting him for his dates. In the end, the film went to Shah Rukh Khan. It was decades later that Aamir and Amitabh will rejoin together on screen with Thugs of Hindostan.
Arguably one of the best films of Shah Rukh Khan's career, it was first offered to Aamir Khan first. It was just after Lagaan and Aamir didn't agree about the pace of the script and thought it was too slow for an Indian audience.
