Believe it or not, but SRK was Rajkumar Hirani’s original choice for the role of Munnabhai in Munnabhai MBBS, before it went to Sanjay Dutt.
Shahrukh apparently has contributed much to the story of Munnabhai when the script was in its initial stages. It seems many of the memorable scenes from the movie are because of SRK’s inputs to producer-director duo Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Raj Kumar Hirani.
Due to unknown reasons SRK couldn’t do the role of Munnabhai which eventually went to Sanjay Dutt. However during the credit’s of the film in the end, Raj Kuamr Hirani mentions and thanks SRK for his inputs in the script.
Well thanks SRK for leaving the role, ‘coz there is no Munnabhai without our Sanju Baba.
