South Indian Film industry is indeed a very big platform. But if compared to Bollywood, it is not that of a big thing. Bollywood does give a lot more exposure to the actors which helps them later in their careers. Not only exposure but also some unnecessary drama. But there are actors who allegedly declined a lot of Bollywood films. Some of the actors are listed down below:

1. Anushka Shetty

Anushka Shetty gained the most clout after the release of Baahubali. But when she was offered Singham in 2011, she rejected it. She even had to decline Ittefaq due of her packed timeframe.

3. Fahadh Faasil

Vishal Bhardwaj offered him a movie. Which he talked about in an interview as well, he said that he did interact with Vishal and the scrip that was pitched was beautiful. Fahadh was quite impressed with it and looked forward to that film.

He also had reciprocated quite a few roles in Bollywood. But he said that he’d act those roles out when he’s confident enough to do so. He believes that whatever he is today is because of the Malayalam film industry.
