A movie might have a fantastic story, a compelling director’s vision, and a superb set design and still fail if the wrong people are involved. Casting judgments is the simplest and most obvious example of failure for viewing audiences. An actor can mess up a role in a variety of ways, from terrible accents to listless performances—and sometimes it's not even their fault. The ten excellent movies—or those with great potential—that was derailed by poor casting choices are listed below.
1. Imran Khan In ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai… Dobara’
Is this casting justified in any way? Nope. Imran joined Bollywood as the "chocolate boy," and despite his best attempts, he couldn't break the mold. Although he is a fantastic actor, he lacks the credibility to play a mobster, and someone more credible could have been cast in the part.
2. Nargis Fakhri In Rockstar
The film Rockstar is excellent. It must not tamper with as one of the few sacred objects in Bollywood. If there is one thing we would change, it would be Fakhri's portrayal of Heer Kaul. She wasn't very good at the acting sections, and it just seemed like a strange choice for a gorgeously heartbreaking movie overall.
3. Shahrukh Khan In Fan
Although a younger actor might have easily been chosen to play the role of the fan,
Shah Rukh Khan
did a fantastic job portraying the role of the celebrity. It seemed strange to see SRK playing a much younger character, but perhaps he didn't want to play a purely supporting part in the film.
It was unpleasant to see how much bronzer Hrithik Roshan was wearing to portray a dark character (who had nothing to do with the plot, so why do that?) and that he wasn't very believable in the role. A strong performer like
might have brought so much depth to the film.
5. Bhumi Pednekar In Bala
We need to discuss Bhumi's role in Bala now that we're talking about actors who are made to appear abnormally dark to perform a role. She donned an excessive amount of bronzer and dark foundation because she was playing a dark-skinned girl. What kind of representation is this, and why couldn't someone with naturally dark skin have been cast in the role? It also didn't help that we refused to acknowledge our mistake and fix the problem. She's a fantastic actor, but the movie didn't need her.
6. Shah Rukh Khan In Jab Harry Met Sejal
Great hits by Shah Rukh and
include Rabb Ne Bana Di Jodi (which has its article) and Jab Tak Hai Jaan. The age difference between the two, however, made the pairing appear extremely strange in JHMS.
7. Himesh Reshammiya In All His Movies
I only want to talk to whoever guaranteed the man an illustrious acting career. After creating a remake of "
," the man utterly ruined it, without any remorse. didn't even stop there after that. Kyun?
The film is a biography about Haseena Parkar's life, however, Shraddha Kapoor struggled to give the role the subtlety and humanity needed to be understood as a human being with nuanced feelings.
Salman Khan is most suitable for the part of a poisonous cop who flouts the law and parades his manhood in front of other people. His "acting" threshold is reached at that point as well. We never would have guessed that he could portray a disabled person effectively, and the movie just serves to highlight the fact that he excels in parts that are, for lack of a better term, "macho."
10. Katrina Kaif In Rajneeti
Her accent and complete lack of acting chops did not fit the excellent film at all. We will never understand why this was even considered for casting.
