Actresses Who Turned Down Roles Opposite the Khans

    Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan are three topmost superstars of Hindi cinema with whom every actress wants to share screen space. However, there have been instances more than once where some ladies of Bollywood refused to do a film with them. In our latest listicle, we list down those top then popular actresses who turned down roles opposite the Khans.



    Starring Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan in the lead role of a taxi driver/tourist guide, ‘Raja Hindustani’ was the biggest blockbuster film of 1996 in India. It set the box office on fire from the very first day of its release and turned out to be the third most commercially successful Bollywood film of the 1990s. Produced at a budget of Rs. 5.75 crores, the film pulled in a whooping Rs. 76.34 crores worldwide, a collection which was unheard of back in 90s. It is also remembered till date for its melodic compositions. The movie has gathered a huge following over the years and thus has been given the status of an all time blockbuster.

    The musical love story stars Karisma Kapoor as the leading lady. Karisma, who played the character of rich and sensitive Aarti Saigal in the movie, received huge compliments for her stunning looks and performance in the film. ‘Raja Hindustani’ is considered to be the best film of her entire career. It catapulted her to the league of top actresses in the 90s. She received her first Filmfare Award in the Best Actress in a leading role category. But do you know that the role which changes her career completely was first offered to Aishwarya Rai. Yes! Aishwarya was supposed to play Aarti, but she turned down the role because she was not much interested in a career in films at that point of time and was busy with her studies and modeling assignments.

    Not just her, but the same role was offered to Juhi Chawla also. Juhi did not accept the offer due to some personal issues with Aamir Khan. It was also reported in the media that Pooja Bhatt was almost ready to sign the film, but on Aamir Khan’s request, director Dharmesh Darshan had to look for some other actress as Aamir did not want to work with any actress he had worked with before.

    TRIVIA: Aamir Khan won the Best Actor Award at Filmfare, for the first time, after being nominated for eight consecutive best actor nominations.



      • What a pity that still you believe in age old non sense..So even great soul like Mohammed Rafi is irrelevant for you… Who was, is and will be pride of my nation. Many historical characters also stand irrelevant….When you guys will change? Everything written in past is not always correct

    1. Religious tolerance and national integration is our priority. Unity in diversity is enshrined in our costitution. We all Indians should be proud of it.
      Religion is faith and our national character is strengthened through our faith.
      I entreat all INDIANS to be one; First an Indian 2nd an Indian and every time an Indian first and always.

      Rest all we can solve with our national Character.

      • u r only right until the rotten Congress comes to power and divides Hindus and Muslims by excessively favoring the Muslims. At that time it is only the Hindus who are made to say the Bhai-Bhai slogan.

      • Please find a few Muslims like your statement you will not find as secularism is a word followed by timids and due this fools India was ruled by outsiders 500 years or more.Be bold say In Hiduism every religion is respected but that does not mean anybody can convert us through fear and force because we will not allow us to be killed or converted like being done in Kashmir and Pakistan.

        • Friend, with objection to your statement on forced conversions and killings of Hindus attributing to acts of Muslims, in this parity wouldn’t India be a Muslim majority nation while she was ruled by so called outsider Muslim rulers for 500 years. Please prevent your brains from intrusions of extremists. I am one such Muslim who hasn’t cast my vote to even an eligible candidate from my community for the reason that he represent a party with my religion name and ideology. So worried to read changing mindset of fellow Indians. Seems we will all only learn by sufferings and not from History.

    2. For as long as there is the like of Mr. Modi and his septic entourage about, Peace will always be Remembered like a 5 Alphabet.The govt. Of India & Mauritius are very weak to deal with all the Insolences being thrown out in the name of Religion.

      We need to be prepared to tackle the False Merchants who are much irresponsible in tackling the Religions as are in this

    3. This is all humbug. I’ve seen movies where some of these actresses worked with one of these Khan’s. This article is only stirring issues creating a doubt in ignorant people. Juhi Chawla worked with Shahrukh Khan. And they were an amazing pair in those movies, mostly comedy with both involved. This article is only showing their personal circumstances where they couldn’t act. Besides every artist likes to work with different actors in different movies. It’s a part of their career like nobody wants to work in same private company until death. This is an entertainment industry, don’t take things too serious with them

    4. Kareeny Kapoor has shamelessly married a Khan who was already married couple of times before.Majority women working in films have no morality and no principles.They do everything if the price is high.

    5. Islam does not believe in Secularism. We stupid Hindus keeps crying about it. They only want one party at the center like a Caliphate concept and most damaging they can not befriend an Infidel as per their religious book. Osama is dead but his message is alive among all Muslims. Show me one Muslim who have criticized ISIS on his wall.

    6. There is one basic difference between Congress and BJP.
      Whereas BJP tries to threaten in public Congress has a semblance of decency in public life
