When SRK opted out of Slumdog Millionaire
‘Slumdog Millionaire’ earned massive global recognition and bagged as many as eight Oscar Awards in 2009. While Anil Kapoor was lauded his performance of playing a game show host, this role was originally offered to Shah Rukh Khan. Back in 2010, SRK had revealed on a show that he had worked on the initial part of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ but didn’t do the film because he felt that the character of the host was a bit of a ‘cheat’ and ‘little mean’. Shah Rukh Khan had also stated that since he had hosted a similar quiz show, he felt that people will feel he also did the same thing.
