Baazigar

Shahrukh Khan in Baazigar

Baazigar was Shahrukh Khan‘s breakthrough role that launched him into the league of Bollywood Stars. But you may be surprised to know that the role was initially offered to Salman Khan. Apparently, Salman was the first choice of the director Abbas-Mastan but he rejected it as the anti-hero role was risky. The negative role earned SRK a Filmfare Award for Best Actor! 

Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge

Can’t you totally imagine Salman Khan as Max Dias in Josh? Apparently, the director also thought so but Salman refused to be a part of the film. Some say that it was due to date issues, but there are some who believe that Salman could never bear to play Aishwarya Rai‘s brother!

Kal Ho Na Ho

Salman was also offered the role of Aman (later played by Saif Ali Khan) in Kal Ho Na Ho. Perhaps the thought of being just a supporting actor to Shah Rukh Khan didn’t go so well with him. Saif Ali Khan won several awards for the film.

Another one of Shah Rukh Khan’s much-acclaimed role as the coach of the Indian Women Hockey Team was first offered to Salman. Sadly, he rejected the role due to unknown reasons.

Ghajini

Now, this role was definitely made for Salman Khan in all senses. Though Aamir Khan did a superb job, Salman could have also pulled off the role well. In fact, Aamir himself recommended Salman’s name after reading the script. But the role ultimately fell into Aamir’s lap.

Inshallah

Salman was set to reunite with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali after 20 years. The romantic drama movie was supposed to star Alia Bhatt opposite Salman. Everything was on track, even the release date was also booked until the news broke that the movie has been shelved. Salman is no longer be a part of the project due to alleged creative differences. In an interview, he has said that he wants Bhansali to make the film the director wants to make and the two will continue to be friends.
