9 Actresses Who Rejected Roles Opposite Khans Of Bollywood

Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, and Salman Khan are the superstars of Bollywood are not just ruling box-office but also the hearts of millions. The trio has already crossed the age of 50 but this didn’t stop them from romancing the younger actresses. Be it, Salman, SRK or Aamir, they are mostly seen playing the love interest of the actresses who are half their age and boy their chemistry is simply mind-blowing.


Bollywood divas be it newbies or the superstar actresses always wish to romance one of the three Khans at least once in their filmy career. It has kind of become a tradition that if an actress doesn’t romance Khans, their Bollywood career is incomplete.


However, here’s the list of Bollywood actresses who missed this golden opportunity even after being offered roles opposite Khans. These divas clearly refused to star opposite the Khan for various issues.


1. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan



The former Miss World has worked with SRK and Salman in many movies, however, she once got an opportunity to work with Aamir too but she rejected it. It was Raja Hindustani film which then went to Karisma Kapoor. No wonder, the movie was a blockbuster hit and boosted Karisma’s career. Sorry Ash, you missed the chance!


2. Juhi Chawla



The bubbly actress of Bollywood has worked with SRK and Aamir in a number of films. Viewers liked Juhi romancing both SRK and Aamir. However, she never got a chance to work with Salman except for the cameo that he did in Deewana Mastana. Well, once Juhi also rejected a film opposite SRK and it was Dil Toh Pagal Hai. Well Juhi, your bad! We wonder what made you reject this film!


3. Twinkle Khanna



The daughter of superstars Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia failed to carry forward the legacy of her star parents. But Twinkle shocked everyone when she rejected the role of Rani Mukerji who played Tina in Karan Johar’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. The film is still popular among the fans and so are their characters.


4. Shilpa Shetty



The Bollywood beauty might not be that successful in the initial days of her career but she did take some decisions which she might have definitely regret till date. Well, it’s been said that Shilpa declined the offer as the film was constantly delayed. The role then went to Twinkle Khanna and rest is the history.


5. Kareena Kapoor



Kareena did not rose to instant fame the time she stepped in Bollywood. The actress saw lots of failure before she became the rising star of the nation. Back in 2000, Kareena was offered a role in Karan Johar’s Kal Ho Na Ho opposite SRK, however, she demanded a whopping amount to which Karan did not agree. Well, Kareena was not in a mood to negotiate and turned down the offer. The role finally went to Preity Zinta and she is still applauded for it. Bad luck Kareena


6. Priyanka Chopra



The Bollywood hottie has worked with SRK and Salman in a number of movies all being a hit. But when she got a golden chance to work with Aamir Khan in Ghajini, she turned down the offer as she was not very convinced of her role in it. Well, the role eventually went to South beauty Asin and she is still remembered for it. Priyanka, we are sure you must be regretting your decision!


7. Kajol



The versatile actress of Bollywood Kajol made the biggest mistake of turning down the role of Kareena Kapoor in 3 Idiots opposite Aamir Khan. Kajol rejected the role as she did not find any meat in it. Well, 3 Idiots is not just known for its male lead cast but also for Kareena who completely did justice to her role.


8. Amrita Rao



The Ishq Vishq girl Amrita Rao is best known for her role in Sooraj Barjatiya’s Vivah. Well, the actress also approached for another big budget film in Salman Khan starrer but she turned down. She was offered to play Salman’s sister in the film but she rejected the role. Reportedly, the actress turned down the offer as she was not keen on playing a character with grey shades. Later, the role went to Swara Bhasker.


9. Deepika Padukone



The dimpled beauty of Bollywood is yet to work with Aamir and Salman, however, she has given 3 hits with SRK. The news about DP being a part of Salman’s Sultan had caught everyone’s attention. However, when she was offered the role, Deepika declined it. She thought the character did not have much substance and hence she rejected the offer. The role was later given to Anushka which became quite popular as Arfa.


Well, we are sure the Bollywood divas will surely be more careful while rejecting roles in future!
