7 Bollywood stars who rejected super Hollywood characters
Asian-looking Bollywood actors and actresses are in great demand in Hollywood as well. Many Bollywood actors and actresses have been able to contribute to Hollywood productions by now. Others have avoided contributing to super-Hollywood shows for a variety of reasons. Today we will talk about 7 Bollywood stars who missed Hollywood characters like that and the movies that they missed.

Irrfan Khan

Irrfan Khan was once able to get world attention through a super Hollywood movie. Through that ‘Life of Pi’ movie. But Irrfan Khan misses another big opportunity to make a name for himself in Bollywood due to his busy schedule. That opportunity comes from none other than super director Christopher Nolan.
Irfan will be invited to play the role played by Matt Damon in the 2014 blockbuster film Interstellar. But Irfan had to stay in the US for a few months. Irfan, who was working on ‘D-Day’ and ‘Lunchbox’ at the time, was saddened but had to turn down the invitation.

Nasrudin Shah

Richard Harris, who played the role of Dumbledore in the second film in the Harry Potter series, Chamber of Secrets, has died. Nasrudin Shah of India has also been invited to play the role of Dumbledore in subsequent films. But Nasrudin is not directly selected. Nasrudin is invited to apply for this through an aptitude test.
But Nasrudin declined the invitation. He says that he wants to play Dumbledore’s role, but he does not want to go there after facing various tests. Nasrudin had earlier made his Hollywood debut as Captain Nemo in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, but the film was unsuccessful.

Shah Rukh Khan

No matter how popular he was in Bollywood, his fans did not see Shah Rukh Khan in Hollywood. This is not that Shah Rukh Khan did not receive invitations from Hollywood, but according to the news, Shah Rukh Khan has received many invitations from Hollywood.
However, Shah Rukh Khan has rejected all the invitations as they do not suit him and harm his image. One such film that Shah Rukh refused was ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. Shah Rukh Khan has rejected the director of the quiz show played by Anil Kapoor in the movie.

Aishwarya Rai

Aishwarya Rai is rejecting a character that is not readily available to an Asian actress. Aishwarya was supposed to co-star with Brad Pitt in Wolfgang Peterson’s Troy, a 2004 historical film.
However, it is learned that Aishwarya had rejected the film as she was going to face several scenes in which she fell in love with Brad Pitt. Eventually, another beautiful Hollywood actress, Rose Byrne, got the role.

Hrithik Roshan

It would not be a mistake to say that Hrithik, a dream prince of Bollywood, has a closer look than Hollywood. The star has also received several invitations to Hollywood movies from time to time. Hrithik Roshan has been invited to star in the Hollywood film ‘Pink Panther’ starring Aishwarya Rai, but Hrithik refuses to accept the role. For the same reason, Hrithik rejects a sub-lead role in Sylvester Stallone’s ‘Rambo’.
Hrithik Roshan has been invited to appear in the 7th installment of the ‘Fast and Furious’ series of popular Hollywood films. He also refuses because he has to play a character under the influence of actors like Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, and Dwayne Johnson. Looking at it this way, it seems that Hrithik should get a lead role if he wants to make a name for himself in Hollywood.

Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone will also be invited to the film ‘Furious 7’ which we mentioned earlier. But she also rejects the character in this film. This is not because she did not get a lead role like Hrithik, but because she was working on the movie ‘Happy New Year’ with Shahrukh Khan at the time.
So even though Deepika rejected the film, it did not take long for her to make her mark in Hollywood. In 2017, she made her Hollywood name by starring alongside Vin Diesel in XXX: Return of Xander Cage.

Priyanka Chopra

By now, Priyanka Chopra has acted in American movies as well as Teleseries. Sometimes I wonder if Priyanka belongs to Hollywood more than Bollywood now. However, over a decade ago, Priyanka had to reject a Hollywood movie. The movie is ‘Emotels’, which has a fantasy story.
The film stars Henry Cavill, who is currently gaining immense popularity through the ‘The Witcher’ series. However, when Priyanka received the invitation, she had to turn down the film as she was busy with the film ‘Sath Koon Maaf’. Instead, another Indian actress, Farida Pinto, gets the chance.
