Akshay Kumar Could’ve Been A Part Of Race, Baazigar, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag & More Of These Films But He Rejected Them All

Akshay Kumar’s story from being a martial artist to becoming one of the top and most sought after stars in Bollywood is impressive.

With the actor giving multiple releases in a single year, it is hard to believe that he may have turned down projects that were beneficial for all those associated with the final product.

Did you know he even declined starring in a project that was to feature a Fast & Furious franchise star?

Well, swipe and see how his no was among the best things that happened to Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Farhan Akhtar, among others.

Baazigar (1993)

The film saw SRK playing a negative role, and reportedly this was the exact reason why Akki said no to it.

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013)

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra & Milkha Singh wanted Kumar to personify him on the silver screen. Alas, Akki turned it down as he was not satisfied with the script.

Race (2008)

As per reports, the director duo wanted to cast Akshay as Ranvir Singh, but he turned down the offer due to the reasons best known to him.

A Hollywood Film

Akshay Kumar was once approached by the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) studios to feature in a movie co-starring The Rock, Dwayne Johnson. However, Khiladi Kumar reportedly turned it down, stating that he was not convinced with his character in his film.
