Did you know ? Shah Rukh Khan was the first choice for Munna Bhai MBBS

One can’t forget the performance of Sanjay Dutt in ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’ and the film is surely even in the list of favourites of many. 

But Sanjay wasn’t the first option for the film in fact makers considered Shah Rukh Khan to be the lead of the film.

Sanjay landed the role because of Shah Rukh’s exit from the film.

However, the actor was signed for a different role in the same film before Shah Rukh left the project. 

‘Munna Bhai MBBS’ also starred Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani alongside Sanjay. 

Sanjay would be next seen in Ahmed Khan’s directorial ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ which will also feature Akshay Kumar, Raveena Tandon, 
Disha Patani, Jacqueline Fernandez and Shreyas Talpade. 

On the other hand, Shah Rukh was last seen in ‘Dunki’.
The film released last year and also features Taapsee Pannu in the lead.
