Shah Rukh Khan Rejected Movies Gone Blockbuster Hits

Shah Rukh does some awesome A movies and is well known for his unique skills in Bollywood and well known as King Khan. But, he has also denied some movies due to some reasons in his life. Said movies went on to become biggest Bollywood hits of all time. Today we take a look at top ten of such movies that Shah Rukh denied and went on to become a hit.

3 Idiots

Shah Rukh was offered a role as one of the idiots in 3 Idiots. Viddhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani both approached Shah Rukh for the lead role. After he rejected the offer, the role was given to Aamir Khan, which also happened to impress the producer and directors so much that he was taken back for PK. 3 Idiots went on to be a huge success.

Rang De Basanti

Rang De Basanti was another movie rejected by Shah Rukh Khan. The movie was once again gone to Aamir Khan and the movie went on to become a great success with its theme of patriotism.

Jodha Akbar

Director Ashutosh Gwarikor’s first choice was Shah Rukh Khan for the movie. SRK would have done a great role in the movie and it would have suit him well too. But the script couldn’t impress the actor and the movie was given to Hritik Roshan. The movie went on to be another great success.

Kaho Naa Pyaar Hain

If SRK had not rejected the movie, we would not have been able to encounter Hritik in his debut role in Kaho Naa Pyaar Hain. Director Rakesh Roshan’s first choice was SRK for the film. The actor didn’t accept the proposal and so Rakesh decided to launch his son, Hritik in the movie.


Lagaan was also another movie rejected by Shah Rukh and was taken by Aamir. Lagaan was such a big hit that it went on to be nominated for an Oscar in the Best Foreign Language movie category.

Some other movies rejected by Shah Rukh were:

Hey Baby,

Munna Bhai MBBS,
