Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma has always entertained viewers with her performances on the big screen. She made her debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi", and since then has scaled new heights in her career.

She has played various interesting roles in films like "Band Baaja Baraat," "Jab Tak Hai Jaan," "PK," and "NH10." She is currently working in two projects — Karan Johar's "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" alongside Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and "Sultan" opposite Salman Khan.

Anushka is one of the leading actresses pf Bollywood, who was also offered several South Indian films. She was offered a film opposite Allu Arjun, then Mahesh Babu's "Aagadu" and a Junior NTR movie as well, but the actress rejected all three films. There were reports Anushka's high price was too much for the producers.

The "Dil Dhadakne Do" actress has rejected not only three big South Indian projects, but also several Bollywood films. Here are the Bollywood films Anushka has rejected:

"Ki and Ka"

R Balki's film "Ki and Ka" was offered to Anushka as well. There were reports that the director was not sure whether Kareena Kapoor Khan would agree to do the film. Thus, he offered it to Anushka. But the "Sultan" actress refused the film as she didn't want to play a mother. Balki then went with his original choice and Kareena said yes after going through the script.

"Baar Baar Dekho"

Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif's "Baar Baar Dekho" was also offered to Anushka. It was reported that Farhan Akhtar offered the film to her, but she didn't accept it and it then went to Katrina. Sidharth and Katrina will share screen space for the first time in this Nitya Mehra directorial.


Anushka was offered Imtiaz Ali's "Tamasha" as well, but refused it. There were speculations she didn't want to work in the film because the director had once rejected her. The role then went to Deepika Padukone and it reunited ex-love birds Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika.

"2 States"

Though the audience believes Alia Bhatt was the best choice for "2 States," she was not the first choice of Karan Johar. He initially offered the role to Anushka, but she turned it down. Later, the film turned out to be a super-hit.
