Kareena Kapoor-Shahid Kapoor were NOT the first choices for Jab We Met!

Initially Imtiaz Ali wanted to sign Bobby Deol and Ayesha Takia. But that didn't work out so they signed Kareena Kapoor, who demanded they drop Bobby Deol and take on Shahid Kapoor, because they were dating at the time. I'm glad Bebo insisted on Shahid rather than Bobby. Could you image the movie being a superhit if Bobby Deol was playing the role of Aditya instead? I don't think Jab We Met would have become a piece of classic cinema if the original choices were cast. It is funny how such little effort was put into this film, and it turned out to be such a hit. Could you imagine anyone else taking the place of Kareena and Shahid? If you can, who do you think would fit those roles better
