The Jaadu Ki Jhappi coming for Sanjay Dutt had a crazy impact on people. However; just imagine if there would have been anyone else in the iconic Munnabhai MBBS!


Well; we are in for a shocker. It was only recently that Vivek Oberoi confirmed that he had originally been approached for Dutt's character! In an interview with Huffington Post; the Company actor said," I wanted to do Munnabhai, I said yes to it, but destiny had it that it was supposed to be a Sanjay Dutt film. I couldn't adjust my dates."


Vivek also said that he was approached for many films like Rock On, Bunty Aur Bubli and Om Shaanti Om, which he declined and they went on to become super hits. Speaking about the same; Oberoi said," Overnight, I was an outcast. People called and said, ‘oh you've done the right thing'. But work stopped coming. It came to a point where producers were asking me to return their signing amounts. I was mocked at award ceremonies and parties. I had to start all over again. Not from zero, but from minus."


He was also quoted in one of his interview saying," For the 10-odd films I let go which succeeded, there were 70 or 80 films that I let go off which failed and bombed at the box office. How do you make sense of it? Well, you take an informed call or life takes it for you."
