Some eager-to-score websites are going all-out to prove that Aamir Khan was not offered Bajrangi Bhaijaan. They have quoted director Kabir Khan as saying he never approached Aamir Khan.
This is technically true.
Kabir, who is a man of impeccable integrity, is telling the truth. Kabir never approached Aamir. However, it was Bajrangi Bhaijaan writer Vijayendra Prasad who had approached Aamir.
And here is Prasad's memory of the meeting with Aamir. "Frankly, I don't know why he said no to Bajrangi Bhaijaan. But when I narrated the story to him I had seen his eyes moisten. Later I heard through my producer that Aamir had recommended Salman Khan for the role. Story-story pe likha hai actor ka naam."
Having said this we must beseech actors to stop talking about roles that they have turned down. It's in very bad taste. We now have some Big Boss contestant Ali Quli Mirza claiming he was offered Nawazuddin Siddiqui's role in Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
One hopes some child actor doesn't come forward claiming first rights over the role of Munni.
