Karan Johar's family drama Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham was definitely a major game-changer when it came to Indian cinema. The film boosted of a 'constellation' of stars and was a box-office blockbuster.
It brought back together two veteran actors- Big B and his wife Jaya Bachchan on screen, SRK-Kajol's cute antics and Kareena Kapoor's 'Pooh' made the film even more memorable.
But do you guys know that Aishwarya Rai would have played Anjali Sharma onscreen had Kajol turned down the role? Surprising, isn't it? But yes, that's cent percent true and this revelation was made by none other than KJo himself in his book, 'An Unsuitable Boy'.
Karan Johar Thought Kajol Would Reject Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham
In his book KJo has admitted that he was not sure about Kajol's reply to star in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.
There Were Rumours About Kajol Quitting Acting Post Marriage
Back then, Kajol had just tied the knot with Ajay Devgn and speculations were rife that she might bid adieu to her acting career to concentrate on her family post marriage.
KJo Was Mentally Prepared For Kajol's Rejection
The filmmaker further added that he was mentally prepared that Kajol would say no to the film.
He Was Considering Aishwarya Rai For Kajol's Role Of Anjali Sharma
KJo further revealed that had Kajol turned down K3G, he would have approached Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for the role.
But Kajol Was Dying To Do KJo's Film
Kajol actually surprised him by saying that she is game for the role as she just could not say no to him. Kajol added that, she would die if Karan Johar signed up another heroine for her role of Anjali Sharma.
In fact, Kajol almost become a lucky mascot for Karan Johar as the latter always made sure that she at least had a cameo in all his films if she wasn't playing the female lead.
But like they say nothing lasts forever in Bollywood. The once-besties now don't see eye-eye after a recent ugly fall-out. KJo even went to the extent of saying he will never forgive Kajol and she is out of his life. Now, that's quite sad as we won't get to see this stunning duo teaming up for a film anytime soon.
Meanwhile folks, do you think Ash would have played Anjali Sharma better than Kajol?
