There are immense stories behind the creation of what we refer to as today, stars. But these actors who shot to stardom could have turned out very different had they chosen other films for their Bollywood debut.

Today, we look at some of Bollywood’s current stars and the films they were first offered:

#1 Kareena Kapoor KhanHum Dil De Chuke Sanam

She refused the Salman Khan starrer because she was still in college. Kareena Kapoor Khan then made a debut in Refugee in 2000.

#2 Shahid Kapoor– Style

Shahid was offered Sharman Joshi’s role in the movie. We’re happy he refused to make a debut with this movie but it’d have been interesting to see Shahid in a mad-cap comedy like that. The star made his debut in Ishq Vishq later.

#3 Priyanka Chopra– Humraaz

Our desi girl made her debut with ‘Hero: The Love Story Of A Spy’ but she was offered Ameesha Patel’s role in Humraaz.

#4 Shraddha Kapoor– Lucky… No Time For Love

Reportedly, Salman Khan had offered Shraddha Kapoor the role in Boston. She declined it as she wanted to focus on college. The actress made her debut with Teen Patti with Amitabh Bachchan.

#5 Diana Penty– Rockstar

The actress couldn’t sign the film due to prior commitments. Diana Penty made her debut with ‘Cocktail’.

#6 Sidharth Malhotra– Fashion

The actor was supposed to play Priyanka Chopra’s love interest.

#7 Aishwarya Rai Bachchan– Raja Hindustani

She was offered Karishma Kapoor’s role but she refused it. The actress went on to debut in Aa Ab Laut Chalien.

Well, we’re glad destiny had different plans.
