Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai (2000) IMDb 6.9: Hrithik couldn't thank SRK enough for rejecting Rohit's role as it launched him into Bollywood as a rising actor and also won him the Filmfare Award for 'Best Actor'
Lagaan (2001) IMDb 8.2: Initially, Ashutosh wanted Aamir Khan to play Bhuvan's role but things didn't turn out that way. The film then went on to knock SRK's door. Guess what he did? He not only rejected it but also suggested Aamir's name for the same.
Munna Bhai M.B.B.S (2003) IMDb 8.3: I can't even imagine anyone except Sanjay Dutt as Munna Bhai. Period.
Rang De Basanti (2006) IMDb 8.3: What was Shahrukh Khan thinking when he said no to Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra? The role eventually landed up in Aamir's laps and the rest is history.
3 Idiots (2009) IMDb 8.4: SRK had been the first choice of Vidhu Vinod Chopra, not only for Munna Bhai M.B.B.S but also for 3 Idiots. Well, destiny had other plans.
Robot (2010) IMDb 7.1: After Rang De Basanti and 3 Idiots, he went on to reject the lead role in this ₹375 crore grossing film. Why SRK why??
Jodhaa Akbar (2008) IMDb 7.6: SRK turned down the offer. Hrithik grabbed it with open arms. And the movie went on to be a massive hit.
Ek Tha Tiger (2012) IMDb 5.4: Though SRK liked the script, he turned it down due to date issues making way for Salman Khan to add another ₹100 Cr grossing film in his kitty.
Slumdog Millionaire (2008): Shahrukh Khan did regret rejecting the role of Anil Kapoor in this Oscar winning movie.
It really takes a lot to deny movies like 3 Idiots and rather choose roles in movies like Ra.One and Dilwale! Well, King Khan has the guts. Take a look!
