Kangana Ranaut was not the first choice for 'Queen', Kareena Kapoor was (Read Deeds)
Kareena Kapoor had once revealed that she turned down 'Queen' before it was offered to Kangana Ranaut.
Kangana Ranaut is known as the 'queen' of Bollywood after giving a stellar performance in Vikas Bahl's blockbuster film Queen. She gave hits after hits with films like Fashion, Tanu Weds Manu, Tanu Weds Manu Returns, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi etc.
But did you know, before Kangana Ranaut, her film Queen was first offered to Kareen Kapoor? Yes, that is right. During the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, Kareena confessed that she was offered the 'Queen' before the Kangana took it.
Not just Queen, Kareena is known for rejecting films, that becomes hits. Like, she was offered Aishwariya Rai's role in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Ameesha Patel's role in Kaho Naa...Pyaar Hai', Preity Zinta part in 'Kal Ho Naa Ho', Deepika Padukone's in Goliyon Ki Rasleela – Ram Leela, and Rani's in Black'.
When she was asked about the same, Kapoor said, "There are only two films in this list that are right, the rest is all wrong."
When she was questioned if she had any regrets about rejecting these films, she replied, "I never look back, I only move ahead. I have no regrets."
Kareena's lost was Kangana's gain: Queen is not just turned out to be one of the most triumphant films in Kangana's career. The film got Kangana's career back on track and helped her achieve her second National Award after Fashion.
