However, there are also many hit movies that were offered to Kareena, but was refused by her. Kareena may not be as regretful by this, but it would have been a career turner if she had done these movies. Here are our pick for top movies refused by Kareena Kapoor.
9 Blockbuster Movies Rejected By Kareena Kapoor
1. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1999)
Even though her debut was long before this movie, Kareena was offered the role to Aishwarya for Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam by director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. But she showed some reasons to refuse the movie. The movie also went on to become a hit one.
2. Kaho Na Pyaar Hain (2000)
At the time she was offered her debut movie Refugee, she was also tried to be convinced by Rakesh Roshan to be in his movie Kaho Naa Pyaar Hain. Kareena didn’t listen to Rakesh and went on to do Refugee instead as she had already signed for the movie. Refugee didn’t do much good in the box office whereas Kaho Na Pyaar Hain became a wide hit and good box office material.
3. Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003)
Karan Johar wanted to have Kareena as his actress in the movie Kal Ho Naa Ho. After she refused to do the movie, the role was given to Preity Zinta.
4. Black (2005)
How one can forget the movie Black which won two National Awards and was included in the 10 Best Movies of the Year around the globe by the prestigious Time Magazine. This is considered as one of the greatest movie on Bollywood history. Yes, Bebo rejected this one too.
5. Fashion (2008)
Directed by Madhur Bhandarkar, Kareena was on the head-list for him for this movie. However, she refused and Priyanka was chosen for the movie which became a turning point in her career. Later on she did do the movie Heroine directed by Madhur which didn’t do as good as Fashion.
6. Ram-Leela (2013)
The director of Ram-Leela also had Kareena to pick. But Kareena refused the role and Deepika was supplied with the role. I think we don’t regret this at all because we definitely wouldn’t wanna see Kareena involve in such movies. But the movie did become a great hit.
7. Queen (2013)
The reason behind rejection of this movie, Kareena just said, “In the last five months, I think I have said no to six movies because I don’t want to do anything that’s not great. If I don’t want to [be a part of a film], I am happy not to do it [I’d rather] chill at home and read a book, or do something else. And that’s a policy that I will stick to. Let people say, do or write what they want to.”
8. Chennai Express (2013)
Kareena was busy those date. She refused to play Chennai Express just because of date issue.
9. Dil Dhadakne Do (2013)
Kareena actually doesn’t have reason to reject this movie. She never told any reason behind her decision. She just got bad intuition and reject the movie. Once she told that it was her big loss to her career. But she think that Zoya will make more other movie and she won’t loss next chance.
Let us know which movie do you think Kareena should have done and which movies that she refused was viable.
