So sit back, and take a look at the movies Saif Ali Khan said no to.

Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge

Yash Chopra was not happy with the film’s general theme, and therefore he modified it. After making changes to the script, Chopra offered it to Saif Ali Khan, but he turned down the role.

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

Saif Ali Khan was approached to play Aman Mehra in Karan Johar’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, but he turned down the role.

2 States

Karan Johar had first offered 2 States to Saif Ali Khan as he thought Khan was a great choice to play Krish Malhotra in the film. But he rejected it.

Race 3

Saif declined the offer as he did not want to play the second lead because he had been the main protagonist in the earlier films.


Kareena Kapoor Khan once revealed that Saif was offered to play the lead role in her 2012 film Talaash. However, he rejected it.
