    Default Shiney lost a chance to play villain opposite SRK

    Follow us on Social Media

    While he is right now in the news for being a real life villain accused of raping his maid servant and languishing in Mumbaiís infamous Arthur Road jail, Shiney Ahuja, it is learnt had missed a golden opportunity to play the villain onscreen opposite none other than B-Town Badshah Shah Rukh Khan.

    Reveals a source from SRKís production house, ďThe first actor approached to play the role of the villainous producer Mukesh Mehra in Om Shanti Om was Vivek Oberoi but Vivek declined the role, since he didnít want to be seen in a negative role, in the mega film starring King Khan.

    Then the next actor to be approached was Shiney Ahuja. His Gangster back then had just released, and he had been winning accolades for his acting skills in Hazaaron Khawaishen Aisi and Gangster.

    In fact, Shah Rukh even had a few meetings with Shiney over the role. But Shiney finally opted out of playing the part, since perhaps he thought this villainís part may slot him as a negative role specialist actor and it would become a dead end for his solo hero aspirations.Ē

    Well Shineyís loss went on to become Arjun Rampalís gain as his non-happening acting career suddenly flourished after SRK took him under his wing. But for Shiney as they say rest is history
