Bollywood buffs would admit that certain classic roles are only intended for a few stars. Moreover, many of us can’t even imagine any other actor playing our favourite characters in the films. Even if we take a look at the recent time, there are several actors who were replaced at the very last moment.
Let’s take a look at some Bollywood actors who were replaced at the very last moment:
Ranveer Singh replacing Ranbir Kapoor in Dil Dhadakne Do
Zoya Akhtar had offered Ranbir Kapoor the role of Kabir Mehra and Kareena Kapoor Khan the role of Ayesha Mehra. Ranbir was excited for the role as he was getting a chance to play a brother to his real-life cousin, Kareena. However, for some reason, Ranbir had to back out of the project, and the role went to Ranveer. Kareena too later withdrawn from the film.
John Abraham filling in the part of Sushant Singh Rajput in Romeo Akbar Walter

Govinda’s cameo witnessing a cut in Jagga Jasoos
Directed by Anurag Basu, Jagga Jasoos is a musical adventure film. Released in 2017, the film was initially planned to have Govinda’s cameo.

Later, Basu had cleared that the veteran actor’s role was chopped off due to some changes in the plot.
Kartik Aaryan’s departure from Karan Johar’s Dostana 2
Despite the fact that Kartik had already completed 20 days of filming for the film, ‘creative differences’ between the production house and Kartik are said to be the cause of his departure from the project.
