Many actors of the Malayalam industry have gained a lot of momentum in doing certain roles. Ever thought of how the role would be if someone else had acted it out?
Here are some films that our actors have rejected :


After 'Aiyya' ( His Bollywood debut ) , He was ready to be a part of Farah Khan’s 'Happy New Year', but he couldn’t do it due to an offer of a negative role for the Tamil film 'Kaaviya Thalaivan'. He is said to have rejected Lal Jose’s 'Diamond Necklace' , which was later taken up by Fahadh Faasil. He was even offered a role in 'Mallu Singh' , for which he even did some photoshoots, but later it didn't work out and the role was done by Unni Mukundan.

    2) DILEEP

Jayasurya's hit film Chathikkatha Chanthu's first choice was Dileep. But Dileep walked out of the project due to unknown reasons. National Award winning role of Suraj Venjaramoodu in the film Perariyathavar was also offered to Dileep. Most films rejected by Dileep seemed to do really well.



Fahadh is someone who has earned his name with his mindblowing acting. He is also known to be choosy with his films. Many films were offered to him and he rejected it. Most films rejected by him were later on done by Prithviraj. Some of those films are Sapthamashree Thaskaraha , Double Barrel  and Ivide .


      Naren's role in 2006 blockbuster film Classmates was first offered to Kunchacko Boban by director Lal Jose. But Kunchacko, who took the decision of taking a break from films and focus on his business, reluctantly refused the role. The other two movies refused by Kunchacko were also later offered to Naren, which made him a household name in Malayalam film industry. Those films were Prithviraj starrer Ayalum Njanum Thammil and Mammootty-Dileep starrer Proprietors: Kammath & Kammath .


 This dashing actor was first given a role in Shyamprasaad’s Ritu in 2009. But he refused the offer as he felt he had to learn more about the cinema before venturing into it. He even did a short term film course. Dulquer even refused the sequel of his father Mammootty's 1990 release Samrajyam; Samrajyam II: Son of Alexander. He reportedly stated that he doesn't believe and enjoy working in remakes and sequels.


 Some of the popular films Mammootty rejected are 'Rajavinte Makan' done by Mohanlal later. Mammootty was also approached for the Mani Ratnam directed Tamil Film 'Iruvar'  to play the  role which was later done by PrakashRaj. 'Ekalavyan' done by Suresh Gopi later, 'Run Baby Run' done by Mohanlal later and 'Memories' done by Prithviraj later, are some of his  other rejections. The blockbuster film of , 'Drishyam' which turned out to be one of the biggest hits of Mohanlal’s career was also offered to Mammootty earlier. 


The CID series of Sethurama Iyer from the film Oru CBI Diary Kurippu which became a milestone of Mammootty's career was initially offered to Mohanlal. He refused the offer because he felt that the role is not suitable for him. Mohanlal was even offered the role of the main villain ‘Adiseshan’ in Rajinikanth’s Sivaji The Boss that released in the year 2007. But he refused it and the role went to Suman.
