Movies Kareena Kapoor Shouldn’t Have Rejected

They say it is in our moments of decision that our destiny is shaped. And what if we had made the other choice? What if… We are sure, these thoughts must have crossed Kareena’s mind too.

While Kareena is known for her great acting prowess and gorgeous looks, she is also known for rejecting good films. In fact, she can be called the walk out queen of Bollywood. She left some really good movies which were first offered to her. Her rejected movies went on to became great blockbusters. She had once said, “There is no heroine like me who has left more films than I have, and given them on a platter to everybody and said go do it. I think I am mad…”

Here’s a list of films that Kareena Kapoor turned down in the recent past…

1. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam

A beautiful work of art by Sanjay Leela Bhansali! Sanjay wanted Kareena to be a part of this project but somehow it didnt work out. Kareena must have definitely regretted not being a part of this blockbuster!

6. Dil Dhadakne Do

Talking about not starring in the Zoya Akhtar’s film, Kareena had said, “It’s my loss because I love Zoya, but couldn’t be part of her film. I am dying to work with her. Inshallah, this isn’t the last film she is going to make, and it’s not the last film that I’m not able to do. Aage bhi bahut padi hai zindagi (there’s life ahead). Whenever she has a role for me, I’ll definitely do it.”

For this movie, Kareena is not be blamed. It was her mother this time who declined this offer for her, as she believed that Kareena was too young for a role of Paro in Devdas!

12. Bajirao Mastani

It is said that ten years ago, Sanjay Leela Bhansali planned to make Bajirao Mastani with Kareena and Salman but they kept on delaying so finally Bhansali  went ahead and made themovie with new cast comprising of Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone. Going by the response the posters and teaser trailer of Bajirao Mastani have received, it surely looks like the movie will be Kareena’s loss.
