Anushka👩🏻 Lost This Major Movie Role to Kareena Kapoor🙍🏻!

  |   Bollywood / Anushka Sharma

Only the starry-eyed trivia junkie😍 will know this, but the first time audiences actually saw Anushka👩🏻 on the big screen was at least two years before she made her Bollywood debut. 🔈“Yeah. It was in [Rajkumar Hirani’s 2006 film] Lage Raho Munna Bhai,”👨‍⚕ she discloses. She features in the in-film branding for the now-defunct radio station, WorldSpace Radio📻. 🔈“Those hoardings used to be all over Bengaluru. Someone spotted the ad in the film, and told me about it. I had no idea!”

Only 8⃣ years later, Sharma would play the lead in Hirani’s Aamir-starrer, PK (2014)👽📻. On the sets, Hirani would even dig out a video of Sharma auditioning for his previous Aamir-starrer 3 Idiots (2009)🏫. The director said he’d had no clue that she had read for Kareena Kapoor’s part💉, because her tape had not made it to the final round.

Anushka was a professional model👯 back then. 🔈“Elite [the modelling agency that had signed her] had sent me to a casting director, where I read lines from Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. (2003). It didn’t go anywhere,” she says🤷🏻‍♀.
