Throwback: This actor was the first choice for multistar film Kaal, not Ajay Devgan

Ajay Devgan is one of the most talented actors in Bollywood. He always wins the hearts of people with his films. In 2020, he also impressed fans with his film ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’, which also featured Kajol and Saif Ali Khan. Over time Ajay Devgan has proved his ability as an actor but do you know that he was never the first choice for the film Kaal? Earlier, the film was offered to Shahid Kapoor and he was to play the role of Kali Pratap Singh.

Shahid had rejected
However, Shahid rejected the film and then it went to Ajay. Had the film been signed by Shahid, it would have been the first film for which he and Karan Johar would have come together.

The film was a flop
Apart from Ajay, ‘Kaal’ featured actors like John Abraham, Vivek Oberoi, Isha Deol and Lara Dutta. The film was not well liked by the audience and proved to be a flop at the box office.
