According to the rumors, Rani was the first choice for the movie Ghanchakkar and in the same way, Begum Samru was offered to Vidya first.
Apparently, Saheb Biwi aur Gangster and Paan Singh Tomar fame director Tigmanshu Dhulia, had approached Vidya Balan first to play the lead role in his next movie Begum Samru. But Vidya Balan took a long time to say yes. So instead of waiting, Tigmanshu offered the role to Rani Mukherjee.
Reportedly, when Vidya came to know about this, she got very upset.
Similarly, Rajkumar Gupta wanted Rani to play the female lead in his comedy film Ghanchakkar, but ultimately the role fell into Vidya's kitty.
It's strange that the actors, who kissed each other on the lips while promoting their film No One Killed Jessica, do not want to face each other anymore now.
