5 Big Names Of Bollywood Who Refused These Films Because Of Less Pay

Did you watch Rajamouli's magnum opus Baahubali? If yes, then you know who Mahishmati Queen Sivagami was. Now, Imagine Bollywood's Hawa Hawai Sridevi playing the character instead of Ramya Krishnan. Hard to imagine? Let me tell you, she was the first choice for the role. But, she turned down the role due to ever-increasing demand of a high share in terms of money. Bollywood serves a lot of films to the movie buffs each year, with this great power of entertainment there comes a great responsibility of casting people from different spheres. Today, we are going to talk about certain big names from the industry who turned down big roles because they wanted more from the makers of the film. 

Thappad se darr nahin lagta, Sahab, kum pay se lagta hai... 

Sonakshi made her Bollywood debut opposite none other than Bollywood's Bhaijaan, Salman Khan. But, she refused to act in a film opposite him. 

Je mennu role na mile, te marr jawan! 

Sonakshi turned down Sajid Nadiadwala's 'Kick'. Later, the role was offered to Deepika Padukone but eventually, Jacqueline was finalised for the role. 

When Kareena turned down Karan Johar's offer.

Kareena Kapoor played the role of Tina in the film. When the film was released, Kareena was offered another one by Karan Johar but she turned it down and demanded more money. 

Pay-ready (pretty) woman! 

Kareena was offered to play Naina in 'Kal Ho Naa Ho'. Later, the role was played by Preity Zinta, and it is considered as one of the best roles that she has played by far. 

When paid less: main teri dushman, dushman tu mera...

Sridevi is one of the finest actresses that we have in Bollywood. She is known for her noteworthy roles in films like Chandni, Nagina, Mr. India and so on... The actress turned down a role that could have been the biggest turning point of her life. 

When asked to play the role: mera vachan hi mera shasan hai.

Sridevi refused to play Sivagami in one of the highest grossing films Baahubali. Sridevi demanded an exaggerated amount of Rs 6 crores for her role, and that is how Ramya went on to play the role.

SRK's one of the biggest hit films Devdas was directed by none other than Sanjay Leela Bhansali. He portrayed the role of Devdas Mukherjee in the film. The director offered him another big film, but he refused the offer. 

He could've got either of the roles... But, money! 

SRK was offered either of the lead roles in Bhansali's recent release Padmavati. He asked for a whopping amount of Rs 90 crores which was absolutely unacceptable to the director and hence the roles were passed to Ranveer and Shahid. 

Sab moh maaya hai, Babumoshai! 

Nawazuddin Siddiqui is currently in the limelight for the controversies related to his film. But, looks like he had also made a mistake when he turned down a big role in this film...
