The Bollywood industry is full of talented actors and actresses. Each of them makes many films but do you know that many of these actors even reject some lucrative projects and regret later on.

Given below is the Bollywood heroines name list of those who turned down lucrative roles because some or the other reason-

  1. Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone is one of the top names in the Bollywood industry. She is also one of the highest-grossing actresses who made her debut in the movie ‘Om Shanti Om’ opposite Shah Rukh Khan.

She even rejected the role of Naina in the movie Kal Ho Na Ho which was later given to Preity Zinta.

To Sum It Up

Rejecting movies by the top Bollywood actresses is very common. There are many actresses who fall in the Bollywood heroines name list of the ones who rejected roles because of any random reason. The same happens in the south also. If you feel that no South ki heroine rejects any role, then you are mistaken.
