Allu Arjun once said NO to work with Kareena Kapoor Khan, why?

Reportedly, not Salman Khan but Allu Arjun was the first choice for Kabir Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan

Mumbai: Allu Arjun, who is fondly called Stylish Star or Iconic Star, is one such actor, who has proved his mettle not just in Telugu states, but all over the world with his regional movies. His last two blockbuster movies Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo and Pushpa: The Rise proves this fact. The actor has been a part of several hit movies and has worked with almost all leading actresses down south.

But, like other stars, Allu Arjun too had rejected some big projects in past due to various reasons. Bollywood‘s hit film Bajrangi Bhaijaan is one on his ‘rejected list’. Directed by Kabir Khan, the movie was released in 2015 and starred Kareena Kapoor Khan in the female lead role.

Not Salman Khan, but the makers of the movie first approached several south stars including Allu Arjun to play the lead role of ‘Pawan’. Reportedly, Arjun said NO to the movie because of his busy schedule. Kabir then approached Salman and finalised him and the movie became a massive hit among the audience.
