The 3 Idiots actor Aamir Khan further added, “Sanjay Dutt and Salman Khan ended up doing the film which turned out to be super -duper hit. It’s good I didn’t do it because I might have spoiled the film had I starred in it. Salman and Sanju were perfect for it.”
Later, in an interview, Lawrence D’Souza also talked about Aamir not joining the cast of Saajan. He said, “My first choice were Salman, Aamir Khan, and Madhuri. But Aamir refused to do the film. We then spoke to Sanjay. At that time, he had done 2-3 action films. So, he was ready to take up an emotional role. The character perfectly suited him. I personally feel Aamir would have not fitted this much. As they say, whatever happens, happens for the good.”
