Nagini Shree |Aug 07, 2019

When it comes to working in films, Alia Bhatt is quite choosy. Though giving many good hits and achieving success in Bollywood at a very young age, Bollywood actress has a list of rejected films which turned out to be blockbusters at the box office.

Alia Bhatt is currently riding high on her career. The young actress is presently one of the most bankable actresses we have in Bollywood and also one of the most highest-paid actresses along with Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif and Kangana Ranaut.

Representing the new Bollywood order, she shined like a star when many established actresses like Kareena Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai were approaching dead-end.

Simultaneously, the industry was dominated with bright sparks - Deepika Padukone, Kangana Ranaut, Anushka Sharma among others. In such a galaxy of talents, who would have expected a star kid launched by Karan Johar - Alia Bhatt, the youngest among her peers, to become a front-runner for best star performer? Alia, with plenty of charm and easy-grip on acting, strikes you as a natural-born who has inherited all the good genes of the Bhatts.

Alia Bhatt started her dream Bollywood career with Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year in 2012 and ever since then, there has been no looking back for the talented star. Over the years, she has delivered hits such as Raazi, Gully Boy, Highway, Dear Zindagi, Kapoor and Sons, Udta Punjab among others. The actress is unstoppable as she has her kitty full with movies.

Alia Bhatt is quite picky when it comes to working in films. Though giving many good hits and achieving success in Bollywood at a very young age, Bollywood actress has a list of rejected films which turned out to be blockbusters at the box office. Here we check the list of five super hit flicks turned down by Alia Bhatt.

1. Saaho

The maker of Saaho, starring Prabhas, approached Alia Bhatt for the leading heroine in the film before finalizing this role to Shraddha Kapoor. Even her mentor Karan Johar also convinced her to accept this offer. However, after considering the heroine has barely any scenes in the film in comparison to Prabhas, Alia rejected the film.

2. Thugs of Hindostan

Alia Bhatt And Aamir Khan

The recent buzz was that superstar Aamir Khan personally requested Alia to be a part of the big-budget film, Thugs of Hindostan, but Alia turned down the offer. The movie is said to be a historical magnum opus starring two influential stars - Aamir and Amitabh Bachchan. Alia has apparently shown no interest in the movie as her role does not hold much importance in the storyline.

3. Raabta

Alia Bhatt was the first choice of the makers of Raabta and she was approached to play the lead opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. Things were almost final but at the last moment, some issues came up. Alia’s team came up with excuses like date issues but they were not convincing enough. Whatever the issue be, we are glad that Kriti Sanon landed up with the role as she and Sushant make an amazing pair!

4. Golmaal Again

In Rohit Shetty's Golmaal Again starring Ajay DevgnAlia was the first choice due to Kareena Kapoor Khan going on maternity leave, and she was keen to do the film. As an insider reveals,

However, after the Karan Johar - Ajay Devgn hostilities flared up, Alia suddenly became unavailable on the dates wanted by the G4 makers.

5. Neerja

Alia Bhatt And Sonam Kapoor

Alia Bhatt was the first choice for Neerja Bhanot’s biopic Neerja. However, one of the producers of the movie Atul Kasbekar found she wouldn't fit the role due to her short height, therefore, the role went to Sonam Kapoor whose stellar performance not only won her awards but also praises from critics and audience. The movie turned out to be a super hit.

On the work front, after Kalank, Alia will now be seen in Brahmastra which releases in December. She will also begin working on Karan Johar’s directorial, Takht later this year. After that, she has her father Mahesh Bhatt’s Sadak 2 with Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah with Salman Khan and SS Rajamouli’s RRR with Ajay Devgn.
