Hrithik had worked with Ashutosh Gowariker in Jodhaa Akbar, however, he rejected Swades. Shah Rukh Khan went on to star in the project. During an interview later, Roshan had explained why he rejected the role in Swades. And, the actor had said, “I had read Ashutosh’s script for Swades. I couldn’t see it from the director’s perspective, and therefore didn’t think I was equipped to perform the part. I wasn’t the best person to translate Ashutosh’s vision. And this was right after Lagaan so when Ashutosh came to me I felt on top of the world. Swades is one of my favourite films. And Ashutosh is definitely one of my favourite filmmakers.”
