Mumbai: Bollywood’s Greek God, Hrithik Roshan has always portrayed different roles in his film career. Time and again, the man has enthralled his fans with his versatile performance. But there is one role that Hrithik had missed. Did you know, he was offered Salman Khan’s role in the movie 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'?

According to reports, the writer of 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', Vijayendra Prasad had offered his story to Rakesh Roshan, who instantly fell in love with the narration and shared the story with Hrithik. Both loved Prasad’s story and were keen to begin the work on it. Alas, the partnership dissolved even before it began. 

Apparently, the south Indian writer had approached Kabir before turning to the Roshans. Later the writer confessed to Sr. Roshan that Kabir was always his first choice to direct the film, but some issues in the final contract made him approach the 'Krrish' director. The writer’s honesty took him aback but he agreed with his decision.

After the contract issues were resolved, the film was back on track with Kabir who was keen to rope in Salman Khan for the pivotal role.

How do you think Hrithik would have looked in Bajrangi’s role?
