Alia Bhatt has shown her talent not only on the big screen but also in terms of the scripts she chooses. Her kitty is full of good movies like Highway, Kapoor & Sons, Udta Punjab and Dear Zindagi and that too at such an early stage of her career. But no one is perfect and like many other stars, she has missed out on some opportunities too. Here are some surprising names of movies rejected by Alia Bhatt-
Alia Bhatt was the first choice for Neerja Bhanot’s biopic titled as Neerja. Before the makers could approach her with the movie offer, Atul Kasbekar (one of the producers) claimed that Alia was a bit too short to play an air-hostess. He had another name is mind and it was none other than Sonam Kapoor. This actually made sense and the movie slipped out of Alia’s hand. Can you imagine how different the movie has been with Alia in it?

Alia Bhatt was the first choice of the makers of Raabta and she was approached to play the lead opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. Things were almost final but at the last moment, some issues came up. Alia’s team came up with excuses like date issues etc but they were not convincing enough. Later on, when Alia was asked about whether she would like to work with a star like Sushant in the future, Alia quickly ignored the question by saying she is very overwhelmed with the response and that she is hoping to hear more from people soon. Whatever the issue be, we are glad that Kriti Sanon landed up with the role as she and Sushant make an amazing pair!
Alia Bhatt considers Karan Johar not only her mentor but she loves and respects him like a big brother. Karan has been a very big influence in her career and Alia has always been very vocal about it. When Rohit Shetty approached Alia with the lead role in Golmaal 4, she was excited to do the role and it was just a matter of making things official. But all of a sudden, her dates became unavailable and she backed out of the project. Incidentally, things turned ugly between KJo and Ajay Devgn at the same time too.
Out of the three, two movies are yet to release. So only time will tell us whether Alia made the right choice by refusing to work in these projects.
