Salman 💪 Had Rejected What Later Turned Out to be an SRK 😎 Blockbuster, Citing His Grey Character in the Film
Not many of you may know, but in the earlier days of his career, Sallu Bhai 💪 had taken an oath. An oath to never portray an anti-hero on screen. Even Baazigar, one of SRK's 😎 films which proved his mettle as an actor, was first offered to Salman. But he turned down Abbas-Mustan's offer citing the shades of grey the character is wedded to in the film.
And now, after over two decades, director Remo was able to convince Bhai that it would be cool to turn badass on screen for once. Salman's character in Race 3⃣, has him playing the anti-hero. A source close to Bhai says, "It was director Remo D’Souza who convinced Salman to go for it. Initially when Salman saw shades of grey in the film, he refused asking Remo to make changes in the character. But then Remo, whom Salman trusts implicitly, convinced Salman that it was fine to be a badass anti-hero at least once in his career.”
