With director Imtiaz Ali’s blockbuster film Jab We Met, Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor’s pair got hit. However, only a few people know that the first choice of the makers was not Shahid but Bobby Deol. Bobby Deol in an interview told that it was Kareena Kapoor who suggested Shahid’s name and forced everyone to sign him instead of Bobby.
According to Bobby Deol, ever since he watched the Imtiaz Ali’s film Socha Na Tha he became his fan. When he wanted to do the film Jab We Met, its suggested name was Geet. For this film, Bobby had also talked to Imtiaz Ali and film production house Ashtvinayak. However, the production house called it an expensive film and refused to make.
After nearly 6 months, Bobby Deol astounded when this film shoot started with name Jab We Met. But then Shahid Kapoor, the ex-boyfriend of Kareena Kapoor was already signed by the makers.
This one decision of Kareena Kapoor of asking to take Shahid Kapoor opposite her ruined Bobby Deol’s career. Else with the success of this film, he could also be the star of today.
