Bollywood is one place where opportunities never knocks twice. If not grabbed at the first call, think you’ve lost it. We have heard of actors getting replaced by another because of whatever reasons, and our reigning Bollywood queen Kareena Kapoor is no different.
The actress has recently confessed to have lost on several meaty roles, just because of her one silly mistake – her mood swings.
Deepika Padukone’s role in Ram Leela is sure to win her a couple of awards, but did you know, Bhansali had first approached Kareena for Leela’s role?
Kareena says, “I confess that I’m mad. There have been times when I’ve signed a film and then felt it was wrong. Yes, I was supposed to do Ram-Leela but I changed my mind. I decided to do Gori… instead. With me, it’s all about the mood. There are no regrets, I’ve worked with some really good directors. I’ve missed the chance to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. But there’s always a next time. I’m the only actress who can boast of giving films to other actresses.”
Okay, is she feeling insecure because of Deepika’s success, that she actually made such a comment?
Meanwhile, take a look at 5 biggest mistakes Kareena Kapoor has made in her career, so far.
Kaho Na Pyaar Hai (Amisha Patel’s role)
Yes peep! Kareena Kapoor was the chosen one opposite Hrithik Roshan. She apparently walked out of the film a few days after shooting had started, as she realized that the film was more of Hrithik’s launch pad and she would get sidelined. The role then landed in Ameesha Patel’s kitty, making her a star overnight.
Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (Aishwarya Rai’s role)
The 1999 film went on to become one of Ash’s biggest hits of all time, but not many know that Kareena Kapoor was the original choice for the film. However, the latter refused the offer because of the following reasons reasons: “Bhansali had offered me Hum Dil De… but at that time I was too young. Plus, I was also going abroad for higher studies. So I couldn’t take up that offer,” Kareena said.
Kal Ho Naa Ho (Preity Zinta’s role)
Yes, Kareena was KJO’s first choice for Naina’s role. Apparently, Bebo had demanded a whopping sum which could not be fulfilled and so, Karan had to offer the role to Preity. In fact, relation between the actress and KJo soured after this incident. But the duo patched up later and have worked together as well.
Fashion (Priyanka Chopra’s role)
Can you imagine Madhur Bhandarkar’s movie, Fashion without Priyanka Chopra? Well, the filmmaker actually did. He revealed that Kareena Kapoor was his original heroine for the film. However, the actress refused it because of prior commitments.
Ram-Leela (Deepika Padukone’s role)
The latest mistake to have been made by Bebo is walking out of Bhansali’s Ram Leela, which is currently riding high on success. Apparently, the shooting of the film went on floors last year October, around the same time when Kareena tied the knot to her long time boyfriend Saif Ali Khan, hence unable to dedicate her dates to the film.
