Many know that ace Indian filmmaker Karan Johar and actress-turned-author Twinkle Khanna are friends since their boarding school days but few know about this incident when Twinkle rejected a KJo movie for she did not like the script.
Both the celebrities share a good camaraderie and to take this friendship ahead, the filmmaker approached Khanna for a role in his directorial debut film ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ in 1998, which later turned out to be one of the biggest Bollywood blockbusters ever.
Twinkle Khanna’s husband Akshay Kumar in a recent interview to ‘mid-day’ said Twinkle rejected the role offer calling it sh*t.
Then, the same role Twinkle was offered was played by Rani Mukerji as Tina in KKHH which proved to be a breakthrough in Rani’s career.
Divulging more about it, Akshay Kumar, in mid-day’s exclusive conversation series, Sit With Hitlist, told, “I also tell her about Kuch Kuch Hota Hai . Even that was offered to her. She read the script, and she didn’t understand it. Eventually, Rani [Mukerji] did that role. She still tells Rani, “Teri zindagi maine banayi [I made your life].” She’d actually thrown the script, and called it sh*t!”
A number of critics too thought the movie was crap.
