Kareena Kapoor might have been getting less offers or 'not getting a good script' to work on, but there was a time when the actress ruled the industry after making a really flop debut in Refugee. The Kapoor star has a reputation in the industry still no one can forget the film choices of Bebo.
From Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai to Tashan, we wonder what made Kareena Kapoor say "Yes" to these flop movies. If we take a look at the movie offers that the Kapoor star got in her career till date, we will get shocked.
Kareena Kapoor has done many mistakes in signing good films. The actress has missed many good projects which later on turned out to be blockbusters. Kareena herself accepts that no Bollywood actress or actor has rejected more films that her. "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...I am like if I don't want to do a film I will not do it. I would sit at home and enjoy, party and travel," said Bebo.
To this, Kareena says that she doesn't know what clicks for her as an actor. Moreover, Kareena has no regrets about rejecting legendary roles which would have made her a superstar overnight. For example, Kareena Kapoor was offered to make her Bollywood debut with Hrithik Roshan in Kaho Na Pyaar Hai. Kareena shot the film for a couple of days then walked off. Reason- the movie was based more on the male actor and not the female lead. Eventually, the film was offered to Ameesha Patel who accepted it and became a sensation overnight. Even now, Kaho Na Pyaar Hai is one of the blockbuster romantic films in Bollywood.
Here are some blockbuster Bollywood movies that were rejected by Kareena Kapoor.
Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
Sanjay Leela Bhansali wanted to work with Kareena but the actress rejected the movie which later went to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and became a superhit.
Kal Ho Na Ho
This is another superhit film that Kareena Kapoor rejected to do. This lead to differences between Karan Johar and Kareena who are like BFFs. However, the bridge was filled on his chat show after some time.
Madhur's first choice for Fashion was Kareena Kapoor. But her tight schedule forced him to search for some other star. Priyanka Chopra grabbed the role and won a National award for it as well. Later, Kareena was seen in Madhur's film Heroine which was first offered to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
This might be one of the biggest mistakes of Kareena Kapoor when she rejected another Bhansali film, Ram Leela which made Deepika the reigning queen of Bollywood at the moment.
Kareena has also rejected the Madhur Bhandarkar's hit film, Page 3 which later went to Konkona Sen Sharma.
This is one of the biggest mistakes of Kareena Kapoor who rejected the blockbuster hit film of 2013. The role later went to Deepika.
Kareena also rejected one of the best movies released in 2014, Queen. The movie was later done by Kangana Ranaut whose fame doubled overnight!
