Arbaaz Khan reveals he was offered Akshay Kumar's role in Khiladi, shares reason behind turning it down

Arbaaz Khan was recently all over the headlines after he married Sshura Khan on December 24 last year. Post the wedding, the duo has been spotted stepping outside a lot and fans have poured their love and wishes for both throughout. 

In a recent interview, Arbaaz made some surprising revelations about the films that were offered to him before his debut which also included Akshay Kumar’s Khiladi.

Arbaaz said, "I was approached by the same directors for another film".
The actor further added, "I couldn’t do it because I was signed up with another director. The film was 'Khiladi'. I was offered Akshay Kumar’s role. But unfortunately, that other film also didn’t happen."
He also spoke about working with Juhi Chawla and Rishi Kapoor in his debut film. He said, "It was great to share the screen with established actors like Juhi Chawla and Rishi Kapoor. I, a newcomer, was pitted against them and to stand around them and to hold my own was not very easy but fortunately, with the help of the director and their own support as actors, I could really do well."

Arbaaz made his acting debut with the film Daraar in 1996.
