Salman Khan Was Not The First Choice For The Popular Film Karan Arjun!

Karan Arjun is one film that almost everyone has watched. While the chemistry of the two Khans is evident in the film, could you have imagined Shah Rukh Khan acting in the movie with an actor other than Salman Khan?

According to some reports back in the 90’s, Bollywood’s famous director Rakesh Roshan had considered Ajay as his original choice for ‘Karan Arjun’ to play Salman Khan’s role – to play the role of Karan – but the ‘Drishyam’ actor turned down the role and it went to Salman Khan.


The ‘Golmaal’ actor as per speculations was reportedly dating actress Raveena Tandon in the initial stages of his Bollywood days and then out of the blue suddenly the duo broke up because the actor had fallen for Karishma Kapoor! It is also said that Tandon and Devgn had many verbal spats over this issue but later, in the end, it was all sorted out. Devgn as per several media reports was also linked along with ‘Rascals’ co-actress Kangana Ranaut and when things got ugly the actor distanced himself from the actress.


Hindi cinema’s one of the most popular actors, Ajay Devgn whose original name was ‘Vishal Veeru Devgn’ is a director and a producer who has his own production house known as ‘Ajay Devgn Films Productions’. The debut film of the production house was ‘Raju Chacha’. The actor has done over 100 films. His father is a well-known stunt choreographer, Veeru Devgn.

Currently, Ajay Devgn is gearing up for his intense drama wherein he is for the first time playing the role of ‘Deputy Commissioner of Income Tax’ in director, Raj Kumar Gupta’s film ‘Raid’ which also stars Ileana D’Cruz and Saurabh Shukla, which is slated to release on 16th of March 2018.
