Akshay Kumar is currently making headlines due to his separation from the much-awaited project, Hera Pheri 3. Despite delivering back-to-back flops, he is among the most desirable actors in Bollywood. Recently, the actor rejected Hera Pheri 3 due to a lack of satisfaction with the script. Akshay enjoys a huge fanbase on social media, and his fans created chaos after the news about him not being a part of the project broke up.
Well, this isn’t the first time Khiladi Kumar has turned down such a worthy offer. Here are some movies he rejected that later became massive hits with the audience.
Akshay Kumar rejected Shah Rukh Khan’s Baazigar
Yes, you heard it right! According to media reports, Akshay Kumar denied the project because he did not want to play a negative character. The project then went to King Khan and evolved into a superhit movie. It brought Shah Rukh immense popularity.
He also turned down hit films like Race and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
Saif Ali Khan received a lot of praise for his role in the superhit movie, Race. However, Akshay was first offered this role, but he didn’t accept it. Nobody is aware of the reason for his rejection.
Besides, Akshay could have played Milka Singh instead of Farhan Akhtar in the biopic, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. The actor later revealed that he regretted his decision to reject the film.
Akshay Kumar said no to Welcome 3 and Aawara Pagal Deewaana 2
When it’s about sequels, it’s not just Hera Pheri 3; some media reports suggest that the actor also had a conversation about Aawara Pagal Deewana 2. But a Pinkvilla report claims that he withdrew from this commitment.
Like Hera Pheri and Aawara Pagal Deewana, Akshay was also associated with the Welcome franchise. He played the lead character in Welcome, and the film was a huge hit. He also had a special appearance in its sequel, Welcome Back. Now, the reports claim that the makers wanted him to star again in the third part. However, he backed out of Welcome 3 as well.
A Hollywood project
Not just Bollywood; the Khiladi has reportedly turned down Hollywood offers as well. He was rumoured to be in talks for a film with Dwayne Johnson. As per reports, he refused to accept the project because he wasn’t satisfied with his character and didn’t like the role.
