Did you know not Amitabh Bachchan but THIS actor was the first choice for ‘Baghban’? – Times of India


Amitabh Bachchan, Hema Malini and Salman Khan starrer ‘Baghban’ released in 2003 and it is one of the most heart-touching films in Bollywood. Directed by Ravi Chopra, the film also starred Aman Verma, Samir Soni, Saahil Chadha, Nasir Khan, Mahima Chaudhry, Paresh Rawal, Rimi Sen and Lilette Dubey in supporting roles.

Right from the storyline to performances and songs, the film received a lot of appreciation from the audience. But did you know that Big B was never the first choice for the film? According to Achala Nagar, the author of the novel, legendary actor Dilip Kumar was the first choice for the film. It was reported that he turned down the film as he could not decide on his co-actress.

The film got released in 2003 almost after twenty years after it was offered to Dilip Kumar. BR Chopra passed on the script to his son Ravi and later it was made. In an old interview, Achala told PTI, “When BR Chopra approached Kumar for the role, he had said that neither Nargis, nor Meena Kumari was alive… even Raakhee had stopped working in films. He rejected the role because he believed that no contemporary actress was suitable to play the role opposite him.”

The author further added, “He could not think of anyone who would be able to measure up to him, both in terms of seniority and name. So, the film could not go on floors then.”
