Richard Harris was the first actor to play Dumbledore in the Harry Potter movies. After his demise, he was replaced by Michael Gambon. But did you know that an Indian actor was also asked to audition for the role?

In Twitter chat with TOI, Naseeruddin Shah confessed:

My agent wanted me to audition for Dumbledore’s character after Richard Harris died. I was asked if I would like to audition for it. But I wouldn’t audition for it.
