Devgn and his wife Kajol worked together in Toonpur Ka Super
Hero in 2010. But the film failed to impress the audience.
However, Son Of Sardar director Ashwini Dhir was still
keen to sign Kajol opposite Ajay Devgn in his movie. But Kajol
turned down the offer and suggested Sonakshi Sinha's name instead
for Son Of Sardar.
A source told a leading daily, "Ashwini had sketched the character
keeping Kajol in mind, as he thought that she would best fit the
role opposite Ajay. He narrated the story to Kajol and was very
insistent about having her on board."
The source further added, "Kajol declined the project saying she
had responsibilities towards her home and children. She said she
didn't want to take the film at this point of time. It was Kajol
who suggested Sonakshi's name for the lead. Ashwini agreed with her
and felt that that Sonakshi would be a suitable replacement."
Well, we agree with Kajol. After all, Ajay and Kajol's pair has
not done any wonders on screen in the past!
