Katrina Kaif is currently one of the renowned actresses in the industry. The diva makes sure that she rhythms the heartbeats with her performances. With plenty of movies in her kitty, it goes without saying that Kat is one of the top picks for many directors. Well, we all enjoyed the movies she was a part of, but if we tell you the name of the movies Kaif rejected, you’ll be shocked.
Katrina refused to be one of those blockbusters that I don’t know about her, but I wish I saw her in these. I know you all want to know the list of movies she rejected. Well, hold your breath, sit back and take a look at the names of the movies the diva rejected.
If you ask me, I can’t imagine any other actress in the role of Meenamma apart from Deepika Padukone in Chennai Express. But, did you know she wasn’t the first choice to play alongside Shah Rukh Khan, but it was Katrina Kaif. Shocking, isn’t it? Deepika’s career reached new heights after the release of this film, and this film became the biggest and most popular film of the year. According to a report on MTVindia.com, Katrina apparently turned down the offer due to the language and accent she needed to imbue herself in in order to represent the character convincingly.
Again, a character played effortlessly by Deepika Padukone was initially gifted to Katrina Kaif. If the reports are to be believed, Kaif could have been Bajirao’s Mastani if she hadn’t turned down the offer.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali wanted to recreate the magic of Salman Khan-Aishwarya Rai earlier with this film, but as this was not possible due to the unpleasant breakup of the couple, the director’s first choice was Chikni Chameli and Ranveer Singh. But, Zindagi Na actress Milegi Dobara refused to have sex with an actor younger than her, and eventually the role ended up in Deepika’s kitty.
Yes! Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor had a chance at romance in another movie during their dating phase, but it looks like fate had other plans. Anurag Basu initially wanted to cast Kaif opposite Kapoor in the hit movie Barfi, but the Dhoom 3 actress was reluctant to make the film. It was then that Anurag signed Illeana for the role.
Katrina Kaif missed the opportunity to work with Ranveer Singh twice. The film that marks the beginning of Deepika and Singh’s love affair was initially offered to Kaif. God knows what came to her mind that she turned down the offer of another 100 crore movie. Either way, we’re sure Deepika and Ranveer have to bless the Jagga Jasoos actress for indirectly helping them move their relationship forward.
YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI
I don’t understand how Katrina did this more than once? How has she rejected these great movies more than once, and surprisingly how every time a movie rejected by her lands in Deepika’s kitty? A film that is razor sharp in almost all of our hearts, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, was originally gifted to Kaif. A chance to witness the on-screen chemistry of Ranbir and the Dhoom 3 actress was once again shattered when she rejected the film after giving it much thought. One wonders if the movie would have created the same magic if the role of Naina had been played by Katrina?
Now, are you telling us which of those Katrina Kaif refusals shocked you the most?
