“It was difficult to turn it down,” said Shraddha Kapoor
Did you know that Shraddha Kapoor could have made her Bollywood debut with Salman Khan? Yes, you read that right. The actress, in a recent interview with Hindustan Times, revealed that she was offered a film with Salman when she was 16-year-old. However, she said no to the project because she wanted to “focus on her studies” at that point of time. Shraddha, later, made her Bollywood debut with the 2010 film Teen Patti, which also starred legendary actors like Amitabh Bachchan and Ben Kingsley. The film also featured Madhavan and Raima Sen in pivotal roles. “I felt that at the age of 15 or 16, I was too young and wanted to finish schooling and attend college. I don’t think getting offers back then has defined my success. But it was difficult to turn it down and focus on studies because it was such a fantastic opportunity to work with Salman Khan,” Shraddha said.
On the work front, Shraddha Kapoor was last seen in the recently-released film Baaghi 3, in which she co-starred with Tiger Shroff. The film opened to mixed reviews from film critics.
