Aamir Khan is a name that always guarantees a solid movie that will stay with you for a while. He has been known to choose his movies wisely but there have been times when he missed out on some of the best movies of Bollywood. Here is a list of five Bollywood movies rejected by Aamir Khan that later turned out blockbuster at the box office:
The director and producer Yash Chopra wanted Ajay Devgn to play the role of Rahul, but he could not commit due to date issues. Then, Aamir Khan was cast for the role. He wanted Juhi Chawla to play the lead instead of Divya Bharti and Yash Chopra obliged. Later, he had issues with the sequences where Sunny Deol’s character kept punching him. The last nail in the coffin was when Yash Chopra refused to give a joint script narration to Aamir and Sunny. Shah Rukh Khan eventually landed the role and we all know how well the movie performed.
The makers of Saajan wanted to cast Salman Khan and Aamir Khan together in this movie and make it a super-duper hit. Unfortunately, Aamir was not happy with the way his character was presented in the movie. On the other hand, Sanjay Dutt absolutely loved his character and said yes immediately. This film turned out to be the highest-grossing film of 1991 and went on to attain cult status.
