Ayushmann Khurrana made his debut in the Hindi film industry with Vicky Donor and the film is remembered to this day. The Shoojit Sircar directorial gave the audiences something entirely fresh and a movie to look back on. But did you know that instead of Yami Gautam, Radhika Apte was being considered for the role initially. During her appearance on a chat show, Radhika Apte revealed that she was rejected for being "overweight by a few kilos". 

Radhika revealed that she was confirmed for Vicky Donor but was eventually rejected. "I had gone on a holiday for a month, drank a lot of beer, ate loads of food. I told them that I'll come back and lose it. But they did not want to take a chance," Apte said. She also added that after losing out on Vicky Donor, Radhika became very conscious about her diet.  "I don't get affected by rejection at work, but the weight thing really messed with my head," she said.  

Ayushmann Khurrana, who also appeared on the show, revealed that since he was quite skinny at the time, their pairing might not have worked. Well, years later Radhika and Ayushmann teamed up for 2018's biggest film Andhadhun which went on to become a blockbuster hit. 

Ayushmann's next film Article 15 is slated to release this Friday and the actor will be seen in a never seen before cop avatar. Radhika, whose last Bollywood release was Bombairiya, will be seen next opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui in Raat Akeli Hai.

It is the directors wish whom to cast and whom not to .. he knows better

And she’s a natural beauty too. Unlike Deepika, she does not change her eye and skin color or her face.
