Shah Rukh Khan, Kareena Kapoor
Kareena Kapoor wanted to be Shah Rukh Khan’s Chammak Challo!

Know how Kareena Kapoor was chosen to play the female lead in Ra.One? Actually, it was Kareena who chose the film rather than the film choosing Kareena Kapoor. Even when the casting was still being discussed, Kareena approached Shah Rukh Khan and made it clear to him that she and only she would play his heroine in the film. Says producer-actor Shah Rukh, “We were still discussing whether to cast Kareena Kapoor in Ra-One or Priyanka Chopra or Asin, but Kareena didn’t let the thought process go any further. She insisted, she’d be a part of the film although she made it clear that she didn’t want to do action scenes and, more importantly, did not want to hang from wires. She was indeed one of a kind. She said, she had to be a part of the film and, in the same breath, also put her foot down on the point of action and stunts. It was actually quite funny. When Kareena was so insistent, we didn’t even approach any other heroine – neither Priyanka nor Asin nor anyone else.”
