After Farhan-Abhishek’s refusal, Aamir Khan reached home to convince Hrithik Roshan for ‘Rang De Basanti’


Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra reveals that Aamir Khan tried hard to convince Hrithik Roshan to play Karan Singhania in Bollywood’s epic film ‘Rang De Basanti’, but Hrithik didn’t believe it again. And the film was rejected. This role in the film was later played by the Tamil actor Siddharth, who was in the hearts of the audience.

The director had approached him for the role of Karan Singhania.

Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is in discussion these days about his autobiography ‘The Stranger in the Mirror’. In this book, he has mentioned some special things related to his Bollywood career and personal life and many other things. In this book, Rakesh has also told about the challenges he faced during the film ‘Rang De Basanti’. The challenge also included the casting of Karan Singhania in one of them. The director revealed that he had approached a few people including Farhan Akhtar, Abhishek Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan for the role.

Farhan and Abhishek had turned down the offer

According to the report of News18, in this book, Rakesh has told that many big stars refused to play the role of Karan Singhania. I first offered it to Farhan Akhtar. This was a time he had never acted in a film before and was one of the most respected young directors. But things didn’t work out. After this Rakesh further explains that when I narrated to Abhishek Bachchan, he also did not show interest.

Aamir Khan went to his house to convince Hrithik

According to the report, Rakesh has further written that when he requested Aamir Khan to talk to Hrithik Roshan, Aamir also went to Hrithik’s house. Aamir personally met Hrithik and said, ‘It’s a good film – kar le’ (do). But the talk with Hrithik did not work out. Finally, Siddharth agreed to do the film in January 2005, a month before the shoot. Siddharth stepped into Bollywood through this film.
