In a way, we have to thank Salman Khan for the films he let go in the past, which were eventually done by Shah Rukh Khan and made him the megastar that he is. History repeated itself once again when Aanand L Rai, the Tanu Weds Manu franchise director who is currently filming a film with Shah Rukh Khan in which he is playing a dwarf, initially offered the film in question to Salman, who really loved the script.
But, due to the reasons that are best known to Salman, he walked out of the project, and, once again as we know, the other Khan grabbed onto the film hard. Although he Salman may not be the lead in the film, we will see him shaking a leg in it. (Salman Khan and a little man sharing screen space reminds us of his film Jaaneman)
However, there is also a lesser known fact about our Bhaijaan. Did you know, Salman Khan, was offered a film in which he would be playing a dwarf way back in the 90’s since he was the most handsome man around? But, that film was never signed by him. The reason being? He felt that the role did not go well with his personality.
Well, it is well known that Salman Khan never picks up a part until he doesn’t visualize himself playing it (Although we wonder as to HOW he saw himself playing a special man in Tubelight). Anyways, that’s for another time.
On the work front, Salman will be soon seen in Tiger Zinda Hai opposite Katrina Kaif and Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in Jab Harry Met Sejal opposite Anushka Sharma.
