5. Shershaah – 2021

When released this movie made a big media fiasco and that is very well known. While one of them being Aayush Sharma was dropped cause Sidharth Malhotra was already selected for the film. Though Salman Khan personally requested the director to cast his nephew Aayush Sharma, he did not because it could’ve been unprofessional of him to drop an actor who already started working on the role he was assigned to.

Moreover, before the film was directed, Sidharth went to have a talk with the Batra family. And after the conversation the whole family approved of Sidharth’s casting in the film, thus it was practically not possible for the director to make an impulsive change just cause of Salman’s request.

6. Dil Chahta Hai – 2001

Though in Farhan’s head there was complete a different casting lineup for this film. It was mainly Akshaye Khanna, Saif Ali Khan, and Hrithik Roshan. Akshaye Khanna was to play the part of Aamir Khan, and Hrithik to play Akshaye’s part. But, after Hrithik turned down the role and Farhan approached Abhishek Bachchan.

But finally it went to Aamir Khan. Neither did the makers nor did the actors think of such a cast. And obviously, the film turned out to be exceptionally good.
