The actor was approached by Brit director Danny Boyle to reprise his role as host of India’s version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire on the big screen.
But Shahrukh refused and the role eventually went to fellow actor Anil Kapoor. According to Danny Boyle, Shahrukh’s schedule was just too booked.
Appearing on popular BBC chatshow Friday Night with Jonathan Ross tonight, Shahrukh revealed: "I was very keen for that film to be made. I didn’t do it because the host was a bit of a cheat, and I thought people might think I’d do the same thing".
It’s called acting. Isn’t that why you win Academy Awards?
He might be kicking himself now, but Shahrukh is not bowing out yet. He’s hoping his latest film, My Name is Khan, becomes bigger than Slumdog Millionaire..Heres to hoping!
