Yes, you heard it right, Aamir Khan was not the first choice for the film Dil Chahta Hai disclosed the actor director Farhan Khan. The film, which opened his innings in B Town when he was barely 23 years old, the director turned actor made a film, which rocked the box office. The film starring Aamir Khan, Akshaye Khanna and Saif Ali Khan that revolved around the lives of three friends coming from a higher middle class background seemed to work well, when it was released around 16 years before at the screens.
Farhan Akhtar who is busy promoting his upcoming movie called Lucknow Central seemed to be present at the Neha Dhupia show for the first time when he asked about his first movie in B Town called DCH, he said that both Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar were never his first choice for his movie. However, when he started gearing up for his movie DCH, he met Akshay Khanna who soon was seen getting selected for the role. In fact, Farhan had planned to give the role of Aamir known as Akash, but it didn’t work the way he planned things initially.
As per the director cum actor, he wanted Akshaye Khanna to play the character of Aakash. I then wanted Hrithik to play as Sameer apart from Abhishek to play as Sid. This was his orignal casting. However, when things moved ahead and he completed his script, he then decided a different star cast for his opening film in B Town. He said that he gets more clarity when he write things, so when he completed his script, he changed the vision and so the characters with different star cast that made him to rope in actors like Aamir Khan for Akash, Saif for Sameer and Akshay for Sid.
