As Rani Mukerji celebrates her birthday immediately, right here is plucking out Bollywood trivia about what made Aishwarya Rai say no to Kuch Kuch Hota Hai role that established Rani in Bollywood.

IF you’re a Bollywood buff, likelihood is you clearly bear in mind Rani Mukerji’s Tina Malhotra introduction in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. The petite actor walked into the body of Karan Johar’s directorial debut and our hearts with that scene.

However, not many know that Rani – who celebrates her birthday immediately – was not the primary selection for the role. Twinkle Khanna, Karisma Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai had been supplied that role earlier than her. Aishwarya, in actual fact, had spoken about what made her refuse the role a yr after KKHH grew to become such an enormous hit. Aishwarya was new to the trade at the moment and was unsure of the 1998 movie would be the good match.

“I’m in a catch-22 situation, really. Though I’m a newcomer, I’m compared with all the senior actresses,” Aishwarya had said a yr after KKHH got here out, “If I’d done the film, it would have been tittered that, ‘Look, Aishwarya Rai is back to doing what she did in her modelling days—leaving her hair straight, wearing minis, and pouting glamorously into the camera.’ Ultimately, the hero goes back to the more real person. I know if I’d done Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, I would have been lynched.”

She had additionally spoken about being stereotyped and her want to maneuver forward. “Look, I can’t fight the looks I’ve been born with. If I’m blessed with good looks, so be it. But for Pete’s sake, don’t knock my hard work, my professionalism. I’m only three-films-old. I haven’t given any of my directors any reason to complain.”
