Movie Dil Chahta Hai

Actor-director Farhan Akhtar is in the limelight for his films as well as the films he has directed. He made his directorial debut in the year 2001 with the film ‘Dil Chahta Hai’. After this he came up with his next film ‘Lakshya’ in 2004. Both these films received good response from the audience. Dil Chahta Hai had Saifi Ali Khan, Aamir Khan and Akshay Khanna in lead roles. But the first choice for this film was Hrithik Roshan.

Recently, during the Pinkvilla Masterclass, Farhan confirmed that he wants to cast Hrithik Roshan in the film. Farhan was asked if he wanted to cast Hrithik Roshan in Dil Chahta Hai and when Aamir Khan was his initial choice for Lakshya. Answering this question, Farhan said that these things are true.

Hrithik Roshan was the first choice

According to Farhan, he had Hrithik Roshan in mind for the lead role when he started pitching the film’s story keeping in mind the age and reach of the characters. Hrithik did a great job in ‘Kaho Na… Pyaar Hai’. So he talked to him about the film. Farhan also revealed that he had also spoken to Abhishek Bachchan for ‘Dil Chahta Hai’, but he had some other projects and did not want to do such films. That’s why we couldn’t work together in that film.
