Shah Rukh could have been Munnabhai: Vidhu Vinod Chopra

Producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra says that Shah Rukh Khan had always been his first choice for most of his films, be it 3 Idiots, ‘Munnabhai MBBS’, or the yet-to-be released Ferrari Ki Sawari. “Shah Rukh was offered ‘3 Idiots’, ‘Ferrari Ki Sawari’, ‘Munnabhai’ and other films. He is our first guy – we go to him first and if he says no, then we move on,” Chopra told reporters here.

Shah Rukh had backed out of ‘Munnabhai MBBS’ because of back trouble and could not do ‘3 Idiots’ because of date issues.

If Chopra had his way, SRK would have been the Munnabhai of ‘Munnabhai MBBS’ and Sanjay Dutt would have played the small role of Zaheer, a cancer patient.

“Today, I feel Sanjay is perfect as Munna and same way Sharman fits the central role in ‘Ferrari Ki Sawari’. It is all about writing and getting the right actor for the right role, which is difficult,” Chopra said.

    Even 3I was offered to SRK first and CDI to Salman Khan.but both refused the respective films and to be frank at the end of the day it really doesnt matter.

    This happens all the time with most of actors, If SRK lose with 3I and MunnaBhai, he gained earlier with Darr(Aamir) and Baazigar(Salman). Even Amitabh lost Mr. India to Anil Kapoor(though probably this is to my mind one and only successful movie he refused, rest all were flopped like Allahrakha, King Uncle etc ). Dharmendra and Rajesh Khanna lost deewar to Amitabh, Shatrughan lost Sholay to Amitabh.Danny lost Sholay to Amzad Khan …. But when we look back all those roles, they looked perfectly played by respective actor and its hard to imagine any one else in those roles. Can you think Rajesh khanna playing vijay of Deewar ? Or Danny playing Gabbar singh ?

    Lagaan – SRK
    Munna bhai – SRK
    RDB – SRK
    3 Idiots – SRK
    Robot – SRK

    This idiot of a superstar could easily have been the biggest superstar in the history of Indian cinema, but his loyalty towards Johar and Chopra has sunk him

      I really doubt that Robot would have made him the “biggest superstar”. I thanks the Gods that SRK didn’t do a film in which mosquitoes gain the magical ability to have logical conversations, or for that matter a film where a single kiss from Aishwarya makes the Robot fall in love. Ra.One had a large number of flaws, but they weren’t as dumb as that.

    As far as Lagaan and RDB concerned, who knows how these movies would have been shaped up without Aamir .. director of both movies fall flat in other attempts. Even Swadesh could have done by Aamir and became superhit .. so what’s the point of regret in that case ?

    The point of the post is that SRK missed those films. The reason is not the debate here.

    “Akshay is not behind in this, he refused Maqbool,Ek haseena thi,Race,Water and allegedly baazigar too”

    add Gangajal as well…. i wish he had done Maqbool and Ek Hasina Thi.
    And he did not do Gangajal because he was already doing another cop film Aan.

    this debate is futile b.coz srk wont be srk if he didnt get bazigar and darr left by others so it happens and sometimes works as a magic

    THIS IS A TIGHT SLAP ON HATERS FACE WHO INDIRECTLY SAID DAT SHAHRUKH USED HIS PR AGENCIES TO SPREAD FALSE RUMOUR ON THAT THESE FILMS WERE OFFERED TO HIM.AND SURE THESE FILM WOULD HAV MADE HIM ‘BIGGEST’ EVER SUPERSTAR IN INDIAN CINEMA.

    I thought SRK was Hirani’s choice.

    Star choice was the only area where i doubted Hirani’s judgement and ability , thts over now.

    Eagerly awaiting Aamir-Hirani next .

    @Yakuza

    Shatrughan Sinha lost Deewar to Amitab as far as i know.

    @yakuza- “yes, actually i wanted to say Zanjeer .. Dharamendra and Rajesh Khanna both were offered zanjeer first.”

    – Zanjeer was offered to Dev Anand and Raj Kumar also. Devanand rejected the offer because there was no song for the hero in it. Raj Kumar rejected for no valid reason. As oer the FF of that time, after hearing the story Raj kumar said to prakash mehra “Jaani story to bahut achchi hai, film chalegi bhi bahut, par mujhe tumhari shakal pasand nahin hai isliye main ye film nahin kar sakta” (I dont know how far this story was true.
