10 Films Priyanka Chopra Didn't Bat An Eyelid Before Rejecting

Priyanka Chopra is one of the most popular names in B-Town. Not just in India, she has been winning hearts globally. Ever since she moved to NYC, her fans have been itching to see her back home more often. Baring Jai Gangaajal and Bajirao Mastani, she hasn't had any other releases in Bollywood. People were eagerly awaiting to see her opposite Salman Khan in Bharat, but she dashed their hopes when she walked out of the film at the last moment, raising speculations about her wedding to beau Nick Jonas.

We go down memory lane today to have a look at 10 other films which PeeCee walked out of in her Bollywood career:

Sultan (2016)


Salman Khan is a desi Haryanvi guy who doesn't have any aim in life, but once he falls in love with a female wrestler, he makes it a point to win the Olympics. Now, whispers are that Priyanka refused to play the female lead here, and as we all know the part went to Anushka Sharma.

Singh Is Bliing (2015)

Akshay Kumar is a sardaar who falls in love with an NRI girl, but has to fight out the deadliest of villains, who also is in love with the girl. Priyanka refused to play the NRI hottie and the role finally went to Amy Jackson.

Happy New Year (2014)

Shah Rukh Khan is a 'loser' in life who brings together a team of similar 'losers' in order to pull off the biggest heist of the year. Priyanka reportedly refused to play the Maharastrian dancer who teaches the rest of them to dance. Deepika Padukone stepped into the shoes for the character.

Kick (2014)

Salman Khan is a guy who finds fun in doing crazy things. Priyanka was offered the part of the girl who falls in love with him and later is left heartbroken. Jacqueline Fernandez walked in for the part after Priyanka walked out.

2 States (2014)

Early rumours suggested that Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra would play the lead in the cine adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's book. Soon after SRK gave way to Arjun Kapoor, Priyanka also reportedly walked out of the project, which was later picked up by Alia Bhatt.

Race 2 (2013)

The multistarrer was first offered to Priyanka, but she somehow didn't want to be part of an ensemble cast. Soon enough Deepika walked in for the film and the Saif Ali Khan starrer turned out to be her first 100 Cr film.

Cocktail (2012)

The Saif Ali Khan starrer once again became a concern for Priyanka as she was not too happy about the hatke storyline. Deepika once again took the opportunity and her career took a complete U-Turn. 

Heroine (2012)

Playing a Bollywood heroine onscreen comes with its own baggage. While Aishwarya Rai was the first choice for the film, but even after doing a photoshoot, she had to walkout of the project as she was expecting Aaradhya. Soon enough, director Madhur Bhandarkar's favourite Priyanka Chopra was approached, but she too wasn't too couldn't take up the role. Finally, Kareena Kapoor played the part with aplomb.

Robot (2010)

Not many actresses would say no to star opposite Rajinikanth in a big budget film. But Priyanka did exactly that. Her walking out of the film made way for Aishwarya Rai.

Ghajini (2008)

Aamir Khan is a hot shot businessman, who falls in love with a girl who puts out a complaint against an advertisement banner of his firm. Priyanka was offered the role of the chirpy and bubbly girl-next-door, but she didn't give her nod to the project. Soon enough, Asin walked in for the film, and with utmost finesse she played the part.
