At the press conference of Bajrangi Bhaijaan, salman said that this film was first offered to Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan.
The story was written by “Bahubali” director Rajamouli’s father K.V. Vijayendra Prasad and he first approached Aamir Khan for the lead role but Aamir denied it because he wanted to make some changes in the script which was not accepted by Prasad.
Then prasad’s second choice was the handsome hunk Hrithik Roshan, who liked the script but thought it was very expensive. So, it was also denied by Hrithik.
With the proposal of Aamir, Prasad reached Salman who loved the script and instantly gave him the signing amount. Speaking about Aamir khan, salman said “Yes, Aamir told me that Prasad had come to him and he sent him to me. So this is just Aamir sahab’s generosity.”
