The Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra has been one of those popular stars that are not confined to an introduction today. The Desi girl of Bollywood has been a part of innumerable movies to date. The actress has not only been recognized in India but globally. The various struggles and hardships of the actress to reach this position in the industry are not everyone’s cup of tea.
She has been one of those top-notch actors of the industry that has millions and trillions of followers and admirers. A perfect blend of beauty and brain, the actress is popularly addressed by the name of PC by her fans.
While the actress is immensely talented and has acted in various blockbuster hits, there have been times when she refused to be a part of numerous hit projects. Ranging from personal grudges, disliking of the script to other commitments, we have gathered a list of some popular movies that the actress refused to be a part of! Let’s have a look:
Now, who would deny being a part of a movie alongside the superstar “Rajinikanth”? Well, looks like Priyanka made the most regretful decision of her life by not being a part of the blockbuster hit movie, Robot.
The sacrifice made by the actress turned out to be the greatest opportunity for the Bollywood diva Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and she became the female lead opposite the superstar Rajinikanth.
Relating to the real-life events of an actress in this glam Bollywood industry, the actress Priyanka Chopra was approached to play the lead in the Madhur Bhandarkar film, Heroine. However, since the actress had been a part of Madhur Bhandarkar’s Fashion movie, the actress found so many similarities in the role offered to her.
So, keeping this in mind the actress turned down to be a leader in the movie Heroine and it eventually went to the sizzling actress, Kareena Kapoor.
Happy New Year
Dance ek art hai artttt!! Well, the classic performance by actress Deepika Padukone in the film could certainly not have been matched by anyone in the industry. Right!? However, to our utter surprise, actress Deepika Padukone was not the first contender for this role! Yes, before her two other actresses were approached for the role of Mohini.
While the actress Priyanka Chopra was amongst the first ones to be approached for this role, the actress turned down to become a part of this film. After this, the actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was approached for the same, however, she also refused. And finally, the role went to Deepika.
The Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer movie Sultan was one of the brilliant movies that have a deep-rooted message along with a set of entertaining elements and emotions.
While this could have been a delightful experience for the actress Priyanka, she refused to play the part in the movie.
Another film that Deepika Padukone got because of the actress Priyanka Chopra. The second part of the race series was truly more entertaining than the first one and various actors lead in the film.
Amongst them all, the actress Priyanka Chopra was approached to be a part of this mind-twisting story however she denied the same due to some unknown reasons. Eventually, Deepika Padukone bagged the role and looked stunning in the film.
However, if the secret sources from the industry are to be believed, the reason behind the rejection of Priyanka was the ongoing quarrels and fight between the actress Kareena (the main lead, Saif Ali Khan’s wife) and Priyanka Chopra.
Now we can’t blame the actress for turning down a role in this one! While the role of Asin was quite unimportant and neglected in the film, it became an obvious reason for Priyanka to turn down the role.
Apart from this, it looks like the actress took the right decision since the film couldn’t garner much success at the box office.
Probably one of the most classic yet mind-twisting thrillers by Abbas Mustan, this film included the actors – Bobby Deol, Ameesha Patel, and Akshaye Khanna as leads the film. While the main female lead was initially offered to Priyanka Chopra, the actress could not take up the role because of her previous commitments to other projects. However, Ameesha did great in the film.
Just imagine Priyanka as the cute college girl playing the role of Ananya in the film 2 states! Well, certainly it would have been more interesting for us as audiences to witness the actress in the boots of Alia.
However, this Chetan Bhagat novel-based film wasn’t lucky enough to be able to get a hold of the actress. Priyanka was chosen alongside the actor SRK as a lead pair in the film. However, both the actors could not agree to be a part of this film so the team went on to cast the pair of Arjun – Alia as the lead.
Another right decision made by the actress was not being a part of the film, Happy Ending. Because of its not-so-good performance at the box office, it was one of the best decisions taken by the actress. The lead role of Illeana D’cruze was offered to PC but she denied being a part of the same.
Main Aurr Mrs. Khanna
Looks like there is a problem with taking Salman and Priyanka together. Another movie where the actress Priyanka Chopra refused to be a part of Salman in the lead is the Bollywood movie, Main Aur Mrs. Khanna.
Because of the disliking of the character offered to Priyanka in this film, she rejected the role. She wanted to be portrayed as a strong character in the film which was not the demand of the script. So the role went to Kareena.
Again, due to disliking the actress towards the script of this film, she rejected to play a lead in Fanney Khan. However, the actress Aishwarya Rai was later finalized for this role which she must have regretted later because of the poor performance of the movie at the box office.
Now, this one must not have been turned down by the actress! What do you think that the movie would look like if Priyanka would have been as a lead opposite Aamir?
Well, it would certainly have been a cherry on the top for the viewers since the movie did exceptionally well at the box office and became a part of the 100 crore club! But since the actress had prior commitments, she could not become a part of the film.
Now, this was the proh=ject that Priyanka even started shooting for! However, due to her marriage with Nick Jonas, the actress couldn’t fulfill her promise to be in the film and the role went on to the actress Katrina Kaif.
After the Bollywood successful movie, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, it would have been a reviving experience for the audiences to see this pair back together in a film. However, destiny had other plans and the actress could not become a part of this film.
Singh is Bliing
A boon for the actress Amy Jackson, this film could have been bagged by Priyanka Chopra in the first place. She was offered to play a lead in the film, however, she did not like the script and turned down to be a part of the same.
This film was certainly a game-changer for the Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone. The brilliant performance and cool looks of Deepika from the movie were immensely loved by the audiences. She aced the role of Veronica in the film.
However, the role was initially offered to Priyanka who rejected the same saying that she wasn’t too sure about the character in the film.
