Bollywood is a community that thrives on reel life and the emotions behind it. In general terms, there are scenarios of personal involvement that does not come to life due to the need of the script. However, there have been times when roles of good movies were given up by stars due to a few issues on their front that was either a person feud or a general belief.
Today we bring you a list of 7 such A-listers who walked out of roles for such thriving issues.
Emraan Hashmi and Kareena Kapoor
The queen B of Bollywood is known for her fabulous display of skills and ability to adapt to any role. However, the gorgeous woman had a condition of working with actors from the A list. That included every actor with a well-established career who rule the kingdom of the reel production. But, Kareena did turn down a role to star opposite to Emraan Hashmi for the movie Badtameez Dil, which would have been the production of Karan Johar.
Sonakshi Sinha and Ranbir Kapoor
The Kapoor kid has been known all over for his amazing choice of roles and brilliant portrayal of the same. Ranbir has always been very prominent about his choice of co-stars depending on the spectrum of how the vibe the chemistry gives off. Thus, when he was offered a role in a romantic comedy against the Dabbang actress, Sonakshi, he was known to turn down the opportunity. Ranbir believed that the two would not look good on camera owing to Sonakshi looking older to him which might downplay the characters. The Barfi actor however did suggest a few other names, but, they did not work out which led to the actor walking out of the movie.
Katrina Kaif and Ranveer Singh
The beautiful duo did have the opportunity to work together for the film Baar Baar Dekho. But even though Ranveer was the first choice for the role, he walked out of the role due to a personal issue.
