Bollywood’s dimpled darling made a stunning appearance in Mani Ratnam’s 1997 hit Dil se and success followed her as she played Bobby Deol’s love interest in Soldier. The actress had however signed up with Shekar Kapoor to debut with his directorial Tara Rum Pum. No, don’t mistake it for the Rani and Saif starrer of the same name. Kapoor’s movie was in talks for the longest time before getting shelved for good.

10 actors who were supposed to debut in totally different movies, any guesses which ones?

Shahid is all set for his December release Padmavati, the actor has certainly come a long way since the release of his 2002 rom-com Ishq Vishk and we do admit it was an amazing journey for Shahid. But do you know Shahid wasn’t set to debut in Ishq Vishk to begin with? It was a whole different movie that could have marked his Bollywood debut and perhaps altered the course of his career too.

Shahid is not the only one! There are many celebs who were scheduled to enter the industry through particular movies, but destiny chose something else for them.

Here’s a list you might find interesting.
