    Salman under Yashraj banner

    Imagine if the Kabir Khan charecter in ‘Chak De’ was bit tall, with handsome chiselled body and look more like a playboy than a serious looking coach? Doesn’t fit in, right? Well, actually, the impressive role played by King Khan was not the first choice of the movie’s film makers. Initially, it was Sallu who had been approached for that role. But due to differences in the opinion when it came to the movie’s climax there was a change in the choice. Salman Khan wanted the final match in this hockey movie between India and Pakistan team. But the producer, Aditya Chopra, didn’t approve it and cordially took the offer back and later, offered it to Shah Rukh Khan.

    But Yashraj Movies didn't lose their hold on the macho man and have roped him in their future project along with Madhavan. The untitled movie will be written and directed by Victor and the hunt for the heroines is still on.

    Frankly had it been anyone else than shahrukh in the role, the movie wouldn't have been the success it has been...

    I don't care much if he was second choice.. it eventually has Shahrukh playing as Kabir Khan and winning awards! :D

    Shahrukh as Kabir Khan was awesome. Anyone else would not have as much impact as Shahrukh in the movie. I'm glad Salman refused.

    Srk was never 2nd Choice. He always was the first choice for Shimit. He said that in an interview long ago, when CDI was about to release. The first time when Srk was asked to make the movie he refused, because he had no time to make it. I think he was busy with Om Shanti Om during these days. So Yash Raj decided to cast someone else and so they asked Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar. But they both didn't want to do it. Then Aditya finally asked Srk once more and he agreed to do the Movie.

    I want to thank God and all the Angels in heaven that Salman and Akshay refused the Movie. It would have spoilt the whole wonderful Film with one of these Idiots.

    Why are they bringing this untrue rumour back again??? Shahrukh WAS the first choice and only after he refused the first time around were other people approached. In the end the timetables changed and the only person who could do justice to the role finally did it... :D

    So 'tall and handsome' OR 'Salman'.... the journo should make up their mind which gossip they're trying to spread.

    the role of Kabir was made for SRK, i cant imagine anyone else in this film :nono:

    salmon as Kabir? eewww, please :puke:
    they'd have to add a scene where kabir is shirtless :puke: or otherwise salmon :puke: would have refused to do the movie

    This role created for Shahrukh. No one else could play this role but him.

    Would you realize, we've loved Om Shanti Om. But Nobody remembers Om.

    Everyone is talking about Kabir Khan:heart:. Sometimes I feel sorry for Om :(.

    Of course, everybody remembers the Derd E Disco. :D

    ok but did really salman say no because the name of the team, I can't believe this. I guess there is another reason. Also I loved the movie because of shahrukh, so if it was someone else, I wouldn't have seen it.

    kirantoocute I love Sahir Khan!!

    I'm soo glad Sallu didn't do the role, only Shahrukh could have pulled it off and win Best Actor for the movie at numerous awards functions! :D

    he would have looked so old and disgusting and with beard:puke:
    that role was meant for Shahrukh, plus yash raj films wouldn't be able to deal with him. Shahrukh was the first choice!

    Shahrukh was busy with DON and KANK. Salman asked for more money which Adithya refused. Akashay didn't do it because he thought Kabir Khan is a looser and he didn't want to play a looser

    wow, they offered it to the wrong people first before they approached SRK? only he could have worked in CDI and pulled it off and make it work as well as it did :madgrin:
