Shahid Kapoor has been a fine actor for a long time. Though he received a lot of hate for his character in the film, Kabir Singh, though the way he lived upto the character proves how good of an actor he is.
Shahid he has done some amazing films especially rom-coms which made us all go, ‘aww!’ there are hit films which he could have been a part of but he denied.
Below is the list of movie Shahid Kapoor rejected:
1. Rockstar – 2011
Ranbir Kapoor received massive love because of this film and was probably one of his best projects of all time. This film was first offered to Shahid but the issue was he had to choose between Rockstar and Jab We Met. Now we all know what he chose, well, probably a good choice. Though I can imagine Shahid playing a goth character as he did in Udta Punjab.
2. Rang De Basanti – 2006
Rang De Basanti had a list of major star-cast which actually was the best part of it making it a super hit one. The cast included, Aamir Khan, Siddharth, Sharman Joshi, R. Madhvan, Atul Kulkarni, Kunal Kapoor, Alice Patten, Kirron Kher, and Soha Ali Khan. The role of Siddharth was initially offered to Shahid but he had to reject it because he had no time for it.
While being in an interview with Neha Dhupia, he said,
“I regret not doing the film. They wanted me to play the role of Siddharth. I’d cried while reading the script and loved it, but unfortunately couldn’t make time for it.”
3. Bang Bang – 2014
It was a remake of the super-hit Hollywood film, Knight and Day. Which infact did not cause any hurdle for the film to be a huge success in the box office. The starcast included Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif. The role of Hrithik was offered to Shahid but according reports he rejected the film.
4. Raanjhanaa – 2013
Though quite a bit controversial when it comes to the liking of the fans, this movie was a hit commercially. The cast included Sonam Kapoor, Dhanush and Abhay Deol. The role of Dhanush was first offered to Shahid but it was rejected.
5. Shuddh Desi Romance – 2013
This was one of the best rom-coms in which Late Sushant Singh Rajput was the lead. This film did well at the box office, the genre was light and kind of a comic relief for the audience. Shahid rejected the film, though it was unexpected since he is known for acting in rom-coms and being an absolute cutie in those!
