Saif Ali Khan

Continuing from my earlier posts, Saif Ali Khan was earlier offered the role of Girish in the movie Parineeta, which role was eventually played by Sanjay Dutt. But Saif Ali Khan convinced Vidhu Vinod Chopra (Producer) and Pradeep Sarkar (Director) that he was fit to play the character of Shekhar and that's how he got the lead role in Parineeta (2005). Parineeta was directed by Pradeep Sarkar and had Vidya Balan (making her debut in Hindi films) and Sanjay Dutt in pivotal roles.

Saif was also offered the role in No Entry (2005), directed by Anees Bazmee, produced by Boney Kapoor and starring Anil Kapoor, Salman Khan, Fardeen Khan, Lara Dutta, Esha Deol and Celina Jaitley. But he refused the film as he could not identify with the character he was offered. The film went on to become one of the biggest hits of 2005.
