Was offered lead role opposite Kareena Kapoor: Danish Taimoor
KARACHI: Pakistani actor and TV host Danish Taimoor said on Sunday that he was offered a lead role in a Bollywood flick and that too, with Kareena Kapoor.
Danish Taimoor is on a roll these days. The actor has starred in various Pakistani films over the past couple of years.
Currently he’s hosting a game show on Bol TV. Recently, he was invited on a chat show with his wife Ayeza Khan.
Danish and Ayeza were asked to discuss their projects. To the surprise of the host, the actor claimed that he was offered the lead role beside Kareena Kapoor in Veere De Wedding.
However, that did not come to pass as tensions between India and Pakistan escalated following the 2016 Uri camp attack.
Bollywood producers placed a ban on Pakistani actors and as a result, stars such as Mahira Khan, Fawad Khan and others who had made a name for themselves in the Indian film industry, had to abort Bollywood work.
According to Danish, everything had been finalised and even his shooting dates had been arranged. However just before he was scheduled to fly to India, tension between the two countries soared and he had to be replaced.
What would it have been like if Danish and Kareena had starred in the lead roles of the flick?
