Queen to Dil Dhadakne Do: Kareena Kapoor rejected THESE hit films we bet you didn’t know

Kareena Kapoor Khan is one of the most talented and successful actors in Bollywood. The actress made her debut with Refugee and later went on to star in many films including Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Heroine, Jab We Met, Good News, Veere Di Wedding, and Ki & Ka. Today, Bebo completes 22 years in the industry. On that note, here’s looking at films rejected by her over the years.

Kaho Na Pyaar Hai: Kareena Kapoor Khan dropped out of Kaho Na Pyaar Hai and chose Refugee to make her big Bollywood debut. The actress shared screen space with Abhishek Bachchan in Refugee. In an interview with Rajeev Masand, Bebo talked about it and said, “At that time nobody really calculated and nobody really knew – whether it was my parents, my mother or me – I don’t know if anybody weighed pros and cons. It was just what I thought was right. There was never really that kind of calculation. I also believe in destiny; what’s mean to happen is going to happen.”

Dil Dhadakne Do: Directed by Zoya Akhtar, Dil Dhadakne Do starred Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh, Farhan Akhtar and Anushka Sharma. The film was first offered to Bebo but she turned it down. Hindustan Times quoted her saying, “It’s my loss because I love Zoya, but couldn’t be a part of their film. I am dying to work with her. Inshallah, this isn’t the last film she is going to make, and it’s not the last film that I’m not able to do. Aage bhi bahut padi hai zindagi. Whenever she has a role for me, I’ll definitely do it.”
