Alia Bhatt is quite picky when it comes to working in films. She has given many good hits and has achieved success in Bollywood at a very young age. However, she too has a list of rejected films. Here is the list of five films rejected by Alia Bhatt:
Alia Bhatt was the first choice for Neerja Bhanot’s biopic Neerja. However, one of the producers of the movie Atul Kasbekar found her short height unsuitable for the character, therefore, the role went to Sonam Kapoor whose stellar performance not only won her awards but also praises from critics and audience. The movie turned out to be a super hit.
Before Kriti Sanon, Alia Bhatt was considered for the role opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. Many issues cropped up, and Alia Bhatt rejected the movie citing date issues. Moreover, Alia also chose to ignore media’s question about working with Sushant Singh Rajput. Kriti Sanon was then zeroed down for the role in the film. The film, however, had an average response at the box office.
3. Golmaal Again:
Rohit Shetty was keen to cast Alia Bhatt in Golmaal Again and Alia Bhatt had too shown her interest in doing the film. However, things didn’t work out as planned and Alia had to drop the offer. Alia couldn’t do the film as her dates were unavailable. The film became the highest grosser and the biggest comedy blockbuster.
Alia Bhatt was approached for the role in Prabhas starrer Saaho. Alia rejected the offer because she didn’t want to play a supporting cast in the film. Earlier, a source close to the actress had said, “Alia is currently busy setting a league of her own by taking up some really good performance – oriented roles. So at a stage when she’s setting such a bright example as far as her film choices are concerned, she doesn’t want to break the chain by doing a film where she is more like a supporting cast.”
5. Thugs Of Hindostan:
Alia Bhatt was first considered for the role in the upcoming film Thugs Of Hindostan. However, Alia showed no interest in doing the film as she considered her role to be less relevant to the storyline of the film. Dangal fame Fatima Sana Shaikh was then approached for the role, who gave her nod to play the same. The film is currently in the making.
