Shahid Kapoor is one of the finest talents we have in Bollywood, he is known for his good acting and brilliant dancing skills, but he’s also known for rejecting movies. So let’s check out the extensive list of the films Shahid has rejected and tell us how bad/cool the movie would be had he done it.

1) Rockstar

Shahid didn’t really ‘reject’ Rockstar per say, but Imtiaz Ali offered him Jab We Met and Rockstar together and asked him to choose one. Shahid chose JWM and Rockstar went to Ranbir Kapoor.

2) Rang De Basanti

In one of Rajeev Masand‘s Actor’s Round Table, Shahid confessed that he regrets not doing Rang De Basanti. While he didn’t clarify which character he was talking about, rumours are rife that it was Sidharth‘s role that was offered to him.

3) Shuddh Desi Romance

Again, Shuddh Desi Romance wasn’t the movie Shahid rejected, it just took too long to start and he had already given his dates to another movie. Sushant Singh Rajput replaced him.

4) Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola

Vishal Bharadwaj offered this film to Shahid after working with him in Kaminey, they even had a bit of a fall-out when he refused to do this film, but they soon patched up and made the wonderful Haider.

5) Raanjhanaa

Dhanush‘s entry to Bollywood was due to Shahid Kapoor refusing to do Anand L Rai‘s Raanjhana.

6) Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara

Imran Khan has really done a lot of movies after Shahid didn’t do them na?

7) The Reluctant Fundamentalist

Mira Nair was extremely keen on getting Shahid on board, but due to reasons unknown he didn’t seem too interested in The Reluctant Fundamentalist.

8) Gori Tere Pyaar Mein

Seriously, is Imran the first name that pops up if Shahid doesn’t say yes to a movie?

9) Besharam

Good riddance in this case.

10) Bang Bang

Yep, Shahid and Siddharth Anand were in talks to do Bang Bang but Shahid eventually dropped out. Interestingly, Shahid’s Haider and Hrithik‘s Bang Bang released on the same day and Shahid took home all the awards for that one. So in hindsight this was a good decision!
