Zanjeer - Amitabh Bachchan

The role potrayed by Amitabh Bachchan in Zanjeer (1973) directed by Prakash Mehra was initially offered to Dev Anand, Dharmendra and Raj Kumar. But as luck would have it, they rejected it and upon Pran's recommendation (and after watching Amitabh's action sequences in Bombay to Goa), Prakash Mehra gave the role to Amitabh and the rest, as they say, is history.
