Bhumika Chawla, who made her Bollywood debut with the blockbuster film Tere Naam alongside Salman Khan, recently revealed in an interview that despite the success of her first film, she faced disappointment in her career. She shared that she was offered lead roles in films such as Jab We Met and Munna Bhai MBBS but was eventually replaced by Kareena Kapoor and Vidya Balan, respectively.
Bhumika, who is known for her selective approach towards choosing roles, admitted that she waited for a year for one of the films, but due to several changes in the production and cast, it didn’t work out. She also shared that she felt bad only once, which was when she signed Jab We Met and was eventually replaced by Kareena Kapoor.
The actor, however, maintains a positive attitude towards the industry and the unpredictable nature of success in it. She believes that such incidents are common in the film industry and that one should always move on.
Bhumika was recently seen in the film Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan, marking her reunion with Salman Khan. While she wasn’t his love interest this time, she essayed the role of Pooja Hegde’s sister-in-law.
