You heard it right! Shahrukh Khan turned down what could be one of the most lucrative movie projects ever offered to him.
Shahrukh Khan was approached by a famous Hollywood studio with a movie offer, they had a script with two leading actors and the studio had zeroed in on Shahrukh and Jackie Chan.
According to Asian Age, SRK turned down this once in a lifetime opportunity as he did not want to play second fiddle to Jackie Chan.
Well, we understand, why would a Bollywood superstar play second fiddle to someone else in a Hollywood movie. But perhaps he should have given it a second thought, since the last Hollywood project that he rejected, Slumdog Millionaire turned out to be the biggest film ever.
Anil Kapoor who ended up doing Shahrukh Khan's role got so popular, thanks to this move, that he went on to act alongside Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible.
According to sources, Shahrukh Khan turned down this offer, since he wanted to focus on the Yash Raj Film directed by Aditya Chopra, which also stars Salman Khan.
With their bonding going so well, Shahrukh chose to work with Salman and skip Jackie Chan. We hope to see this love between the Khans blossom more.
