Raja Hindustani

Director Dharmesh's dream choice for the role was Aishwarya, but the actress who already had four films in her kitty by this point, chose to give it all up and participate in the Miss World pageant which she won as well.

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

She rejected this film due to her packed schedule, she was shooting for Jeans at the time and therefore rejected this.


Originally Abhishek, Aishwarya and Saif were said to play the lead roles, Aish rejected it due to busy schedule and the fact that the movie was about the two male leads, later even Saif dropped out.


This movie was announced at the Cannes Film Festival but her unexpected pregnancy made her quit the movie during production stages.

Chalte Chalte

When Salman dropped in on the sets and had a huge fight with Aishwarya, not being able to cope with the ruckus, Shahrukh Khan replaced Aishwarya with Rani.

Bhool Bhulaiyaa

Bhool Bhulaiyaa, a super hit remake of a south Indian movie was first offered to Aishwarya but she rejected the haunted role which landed in Vidya's lap.

Veer Zaara

Yet another classic hit film that Aishwarya Rai rejected and Rani Mukerji cashed in on.


Aishwarya was initially approached by Karan for Shuddhi, she rejected it and so it went to Hrithik and Kareena, now finally lucky Varun and Alia have landed the lead roles.


Kaurwaki's role was initially to be played by Aishwarya Rai but her loss was Kareena's again who got to romance King Khan in the movie.

Munnabhai MBBS

The movie's initial lead cast was Shahrukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai but due to shoulder injury SRK backed out and Sanjay Dutt was cast as the hero, owing to Sanjay's low career phase back then, Aishwarya too opted out.


Another Madhur Bhandarkar movie Aishwarya Rai rejected, this movie went onto frame Bipasha Basu's career in Bollywood.


Saif and Aishwarya Rai were cast in the lead role, when Saif was replaced by Varun Dhawan, Aish chose to opt out since she did not want to be paired opposite a younger hero.
