Ashutosh Gowariker's first choice for the central role in this Oscar-nominated picture was Hrithik Roshan and not Aamir Khan

In this popular Shah Rukh Khan film, Hrithik Roshan again rejected Ashutosh Gowariker for the lead role because he didn't fit the director's vision.

Swades (2004)

It would have been Roshan playing Bunty instead of Abhishek Bachchan if the makers of this classic crime comedy had their way.

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra had initially offered the role of Karan Sanghani (then played by Siddharth) to Roshan in this cult-favourite film

Rang De Basanti (2006)

Since Roshan was already known for his great work in period dramas like Jodhaa Akbar, SS Rajamouli asked him to be in his historical fantasy epic, which became a huge hit.
