Saif Ali Khan regrets turning down Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’
Saif Ali Khan is not only known for his style but has also garnered praise for his roles in ‘Omkara’, ‘Race’ and many more. He is married to Kareena Kapoor and the duo have an adorable son Taimur Ali Khan. On the professional front, he is doing some major meaty work. But not many know that there is one thing that the actor regrets.
In a throwback interview, Saif Ali Khan had revealed that he does not have any regrets in turning down the role of Chunnilal in ‘Devdas’. However, he feels like an idiot for turning down ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’.
Saif said,“I felt I’d be miscast as Chunnilal. I don’t think the role suited Motilal either in Bimal Roy‘s ‘Devdas’. But at least Motilal and Chunnilal rhyme. I have only one regret and that’s ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, which I rejected. Seriously, I must have been a nut case then”.
He further revealed that he had almost turned down the role of Sameer in ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ as well. But Dimple Kapadia asked him to not focus on the time, but the goodness of the role. He further added that there were some scenes in the movie that he liked and felt that they will be remembered for a long time to come.
Thank God he did not turn down the role for who can forget Saif as Sameer ‘in Dil Chahta Hai’.
