Sushant Singh Rajput in Half Girlfriend
Starring Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor Half Girlfriend which was directed by Mohit Suri was released in 2017 but do you know Arjun Kapoor was not the first choice in the movie. The late actor Sushant Singh Rajput was offered this film for the first time. But for some reason Sushant Singh Rajput could not be part of the film and later the film went to Arjun Kapoor.
Randeep Hooda in Kesari
Arguably one of Akshay Kumar’s most beloved movies is Kesari which was released in 2019. But do you know that it was not Akshay Kumar but Randeep Hooda who was the top pick in the movie.

Kareena Kapoor in Kal Ho Na Ho
The film Kal Ho Na Ho, which had Shahrukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Preity Zinta in the lead role till today, has one of the highest recall values. We loved the movie and every performance in it immensely, but do you know that the character of Preity Zinta was originally offered to Kareena Kapoor, yes you heard that right, Kareena Kapoor would have been in the movie Kal Ho Na Ho too but due to the huge fee demanded by the actress, the role then went to Preity Zinta.
