It has happened several times that many big actors get approached for a role and they opt out of it due to busy schedules and many other reasons. The actors have also expressed their regret on not being a part of certain projects due to the other projects which they took up or go delayed for some or the other reason. Shah Rukh Khan is one of those actors who has let go several projects and spoken about the same later.

Recently, during an interaction with Filmfare, SRK opened up about being the first choice for Mani Ratnam's Raavan which eventually starred Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Vikram and Abhishek Bachchan in the lead roles. Shah Rukh stated, "I enjoyed working with Mani Ratnam. It was fun. He wanted me to do Raavan. But I was caught up then. Also, it was bilingual. I found it difficult to do that." Did you wish to see King Khan in Raavan? Let us know in the comments below.

Recently, SRK was also in the news of taking up Saare Jahaan Se Accha which was earlier offered to Aamir Khan

Shah Rukh was also asked about the directors he would like to work with. To which he replied, "Aanand sir is someone I’d like to work with again. But I want to make an action film with him. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s fun. It’s been a long time since I did his kind of film. He had asked me to do one but I was busy with Zero. Amongst the new people, Rajkumar Hirani would be nice to work with."


Nothing says eeew more than braying over roles you were offered but refused so people can say awwww you would have been so much better, double eeew

Mani Ratnam first wanted Manisha Koirala-SRK pairing. But obviously SRK rejected it and the rest is history.

SRK would have been awesome in this movie. Unfortunately this was a little beyond Abhishek's capabilities and he faltered. (I like Abhishek, just not in this movie). It's a shame because I feel this would have been a great movie if they casted it right. Look at how critically acclaimed the Tamil version is even though it is frame by frame, the same movie.

I want to see SRK and Ash together ..

I think Abhi did great. Movie was good too, but esoteric

So unnecessary to talk about roles you were previously offered. What is he trying to prove? That he was offered versatile roles... but preferred to do Raj/Rahul characters.

Abhisek at that point could not emote something Srk could have done better. He probably would have brought his madness from darr in it.

SRK stopped working with Ash on gauri's orders.
