His fans may not know that these films were denied by Salman, later on were accepted by either Shahrukh or Aamir and these films broken many records in the history of Indian Cinema. Here is the list of 6 blockbusters which Salman Khan rejected straight away.

1. Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (DDLJ)

This film was released on 19 Oct, 1995 by Yashraj Banner is the greatest hit of all times in Indian Cinema. You will be shocked to know that the lead role of Raj Malhotra (Shahrukh Khan)  was first offered to Salman. But due to some reasons he rejected the project. Later Shahrukh accepted the offer and the film changed the history of Indian Cinema.

2. Ghajini

There were rumors about the film that Aamir suggested Salman to be the best for the lead role in Ghajini. But Salman refused to be the part of the film. But later, Aamir was loved by everyone in the role of Psycho and the movie was Super hit.

3. Baazigar

The movie was released on 12 Nov, 1993. This Thriller film by Abbas-Mustan was rejected by Salman Khan due to his negative role. Later Shahrukh Khan accepted to do the negative role and movie was loved by everyone.

4. Chak De India

This blockbuster was released in 2007. The film was made under the directions of Yashraj banner and Shimit Amin which was based on sports. The role of Hockey coach actually was written for Salman Khan but due to Date issue Salman was not able to do the film. But then Shahrukh did it and won the award for best actor too.

5. Josh

Salman had the date problem for the role of Max in the film and then Shahrukh took the offer. There were also some rumours that Salman does not wanted to be the brother of Aishwarya in the film,  so he denied the offer.

6. Kal Ho Naa Ho

This romantic-comedy drama movie by Dharma Productions was released in 2003. The role of Saif Ali Khan was first offered to Salman. But due to his cold war with Shahrukh, he did not accepted a second role opposite to Shahrukh and rejected it. Later the movie was a big blockbuster.

So these can be considered the biggest mistakes made by Salman. Although he has given many blockbusters but if he would have accepted these movies then no other superstars would be anywhere around him.
