This may sound unbelievable but it’s true. Way back in 1987 was released a film, West Is West, which was made in Hollywood. There were auditions held in India for the lead role. Aamir Khan (whose Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak had yet to release), Ashutosh Gowariker (who was to later direct Aamir in Lagaan), Raj Zutshi and Deepak Tijori auditioned for the role. While Aamir failed the test, Ashutosh was selected and, therefore, ended up playing the hero in the film.
