5 Films Kareena Kapoor Khan Said NO To, The List Will Shock You!
In the glamorous realm of Bollywood, decisions regarding film roles can make or break a career. For Kareena Kapoor Khan, a leading lady known for her impeccable acting prowess and screen presence, the journey to stardom has been marked by a careful selection of roles.
Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai
Kareena Kapoor originally played the role of Sonia, but she left the movie a few days after it began. Then, Ameesha Patel, a recent arrival, took her place. After Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai became a huge hit, Patel instantly rose to fame.
Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
In Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali had intended to cast Kareena Kapoor, but for some reason, things didn't work out, so Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was cast instead.
Kal Ho Na Ho
Kal Ho Na Ho was another career miscalculation. Yes, Kareena declined to appear in KHNH as Naina. One explanation is that she didn't think Karan Johar was paying enough.
Another explanation is that she didn't think Nikhil Advani could direct the movie and preferred KJo to do so. In any case, Karan was not pleased with Kareena's choice, and the two had a falling out.
Indeed. Kareena also turned down Queen. Bebo had previously stated, "I think I have said no to six films in the last five months because I don't want to do anything that's not great," in an interview with a major daily.
I'm happy to not participate in [be a part of a film] if I don't want to; instead, I'd rather relax at home with a book or do something else. And I will adhere to that policy. Let people say, do or write what they want to."
Kareena quickly shot back, making it clear that the role did not interest her at all, when asked about the primary reason she turned down Ram-Leela from Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
She firmly believes that there is work for everyone and thus, losing out on one film would not take away her super-heroine tag from her.
