Shah Rukh Khan Reveals How He Wanted To Star In Ashutosh Gowariker's 'Jodha Akbar' But Ended Up Doing 'Swades' Instead!
Google search 'Movies rejected by Shah Rukh Khan' and Ashutosh Gowariker's 'Jodha Akbar' is one name that will surely crop up. But do you know that SRK was quite keen to star in this historical drama which ultimately landed in Hrithik Roshan's lap?

In an interview to Huffington Post King Khan revealed that he wanted to do 'Jodha Akbar' but it was director Ashutosh Gowariker who told him to star in 'Swades' instead. SRK was quoted saying, "I never thought Swades (2004) would be a great film. I wanted to do 'Jodhaa Akbar' (2008) with Ashutosh Gowariker instead. I told him that 'Swades' is a nice film but it will tank. But he was confident. When I asked him why he wants to do the film, he told me that it was because his father wanted him to make a film like that. And that was what convinced me. Otherwise, I didn't see much commercial value in Swades. We did because it gave Ashu an opportunity to make his father proud."

Who knew at that time that 'Swades' would end up as one of SRK's critically acclaimed work!
