A streak of bad decisions? Movies Hrithik Roshan rejected
Hrithik Roshan has earned quite a reputation in Bollywood for making bad decisions when it comes to choosing movies. The actor is known to reject some movies, which later went on to become blockbuster hits. From Dil Chahta Hai to Rang De Basanti, Main Hoon Na, Swades and Bunty Aur Babli, Hrithik Roshan opted out of some roles which other actors would kill to get! Here’s a list of films the actor said no to recently.
Shuddhi: Karan Johar’s much-awaited film project Shuddhi had many issues with its casting. While Hrithik Roshan was almost finalized for the movie, but Hrithik opted out of the film as he was busy shooting for Mohenjo Daro at that time, and did not like the profit-sharing deal with Karan Johar. The project has been shelved now.
Thugs: Here’s another A-list project Hrithik opted out for (or was removed, we don’t know the real story) after Mohenjo Daro tanked at the Box Office. Not only did he lose a chance to work with YashRaj Films again (which gave him a superhit movie Dhoom 2), he also lost a chance to share screen space with Amitabh Bachchan.
Fighter: We were all excited to see Hrithik Roshan star as an IAF pilot in Siddharth Anand’s Fighter. But if reports are to be believed, Hrithik has opted out of this film too. Producer Sajid Nadiadwala refused to back the film, due to which Hrithik decided to walk away, as his last movie with Siddharth – Bang Bang – was also a flop.
Zoya Akhtar’s next: Hrithik Roshan was first approached by director Zoya Akhtar for her next movie. While Zoya gave Hrithik his last superhit film – Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Hrithik rejected this movie as he would have to share screen space with actor Ranveer Singh.
Looks like after completing the shoot of Kaabil (which is also clashing with Shahrukh Khan’s Raees, thus diffusing its chances to succeed), Hrithik will just have to wait for daddy Rakesh Roshan to finish the script of Krrish 4.
