Shashi Tharoor had got an offer to work
Bollywood’s famous actor Salman Khan is present in Russia for the shooting of the film ‘Tiger 3’ these days. Salman Khan will be seen playing the lead role in the film alongside Katrina Kaif. A few days ago, Salman Khan’s look related to the film also became very viral. Salman Khan is also well known for giving opportunities to other actors in films. Apart from this, once Congress leader Shashi Tharoor also got an offer to work with Salman Khan in the film. The Congress leader was offered the role of External Affairs Minister in the film, although Shashi Tharoor flatly refused to play him.
This anecdote related to Salman Khan was shared by Shashi Tharoor himself in an interview in 2018. Talking about this, he told host Janice Sequera, “I was offered by a famous director to work in Salman Khan starrer film. I can always cherish these moments. The role of the foreign minister was to be played in this film.
Shashi Tharoor had further said while talking about this, “But a friend of mine had advised me that if you want to become the External Affairs Minister, please don’t play the role of External Affairs Minister. I thought he was right, so I took my step back. Let us tell you that there was also news about Shashi Tharoor that he was seen in Salman Khan’s Andaz Apna Apna.
Responding to this, Shashi Tharoor had said, “Obviously I was not in the film. Because at that time I was working for the United Nations.” The Congress leader had told that the person in the film was his lookalike, who was a Gujarati actor. The Congress leader had also told in his interview that after joining politics, he started getting offers for films.
Shashi Tharoor had said about this, “When I came into Indian politics, I started getting a lot of offers from films. But I don’t understand why these offers didn’t come when I was young and handsome.”
