Aamir Khan was offered the role of Rajinikanth in the upcoming movie Robot 2.0 by Shankar. Rajinikanth himself had even called him up to take the movie because he couldn't start shooting due to his health issues.

So Aamir was ready to do the movie but then rejected saying..“It’s a superb script and it’s going to do very well but whenever I used to shut my eyes, I used to see Rajini sir in that role," he said, adding, "Then I told Shankar, I won’t be able to do it. Only Rajini sir can do it. He is irreplaceable.”

The screenwriter Prasad went to Roshan, who only produces films refused to take on the project and Prasad went to Aamir Khan.

Amir Khan after reading the script thought that Salman Khan would be perfect for this film and directed the scriptwriter towards him. Which is how Salman Khan earned over Rs. 300 crores.

Shah Rukh Khan was not the first choice for the role. Although, no one other than the irrepressible King Khan could do justice to Raj.

Thank God, Aamir didn't do DDLJ and rejected the script!

Salman Khan and Aamir Khan have proved to be an entertaining jodi onscreen and apparently the duo was approached to work together in Saajan.

The makers of Saajan wanted to cast the two Khans together in the romantic tale, but Aamir Khan did not like the character offered to him.
When Sanjay was offered the same role he loved the role and immediately lapped up the offer.

Nayak The Real Hero, which starred Anil Kapoor, was initially offered to Aamir Khan.

Aamir was offered the leading role of Shivaji Rao, but he turned it down. Eventually the film went to Anil Kapoor, and the film went on to be a huge success at the box office. It was a path-breaking film in Anil Kapoor's career, and is counted among one of the best films till date.

Couldn't imagine Aamir doing this role anyway.Good, he rejected this one too...
