Mumbai: Yes, you read it right! Shahrukh Khan was the first choice
to play the role of tiger in Ek Tha Tiger. Recently, the
director of the film confirmed the news by saying that the producer
of Ek Tha Tiger, Aditya Chopra, had approached Shahrukh
Khan first for the movie.
Khan told a leading daily, "I didn't meet Shahrukh, but yes,
Adi (producer Aditya Chopra) did approach him. However, the script
as it is today is meant for Salman."
Talking about the rumours that Katrina Kaif recommended the name
Khan for Ek Tha Tiger, Kabir Khan said, "Katrina's one
of my closest friends and the only one who could play Zoya in
Ek Tha Tiger, but she didn't recommend Salman. His name
may have come up during discussions. He took an instant liking to
me when we met years ago."
So, do you think even Shahrukh Khan could have played the role
of Tiger brilliantly, just like Salman?
