Bollywood Industry is often known to be the dream of many! While luck has favored many, others have gone back after struggling for years in the industry! But there are also some big actresses in Bollywood, who dared to take risks! Risks not because they are too confident of their position but because they have grown up with certain beliefs and refused to compromise them when it came to films and acting!

Priyanka Chopra who is now a very well known actor of Quantico in the US, had rejected the film Ghajini opposite the perfectionist of Bollywood, Aamir Khan. Ghajini was not only one of the first films to have entered the 100 crore club but as Priyanka wasn’t sure of playing the part, it was eventually offered to Asin! Recently she also stepped out of ‘Bharat’. There are a lot of speculations regarding why Priyanka chose to walk out of this film where she was starred opposite Salman Khan. A film anticipated to be the big come back project of Chopra, is now having to go ahead without her!

Kangana Ranaut has always been known for her opinionated attitude and controversies. Kangana’s comment on Koffee with Karan about not wanting to work with any of the three Khans in Bollywood made a number of eyebrows rise in awe and surprise! She was seen to be equally bold in rejecting a film opposite the one and only Shah Rukh Khan when film maker Anand L. Rai offered her a project opposite the star. She was said to have rejected it because the project was male-centric and she didn’t want to work in such a film despite the big name attached with it!

But only she can confirm the real truth about rejecting screen time with a Khan!
