Shah Rukh Khan, who was initially choice the titular role in ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’ said he couldn’t have done it better than Sanjay Dutt.
Producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra had offered it to Shah Rukh but he rejected it due to health issues and the project eventually went to Dutt. The role of a lovable goon in the Rajkumar Hirani-directed movie turned out to be a turning point in Dutt’s career.
“I think every film is written in an actor’s destiny. I don’t think I would have done it as well as Sanjay Dutt has. I think he was fantastic in the film”, Shah Rukh said, when asked if he regrets not doing the film.
The 52-year-old actor, who in his over two-decade-long career has suffered several injuries, said one should go for regular health check-ups for the sake of one’s family.
“I had a knee injury during a dance sequence. I am not a surgery junkie, I have had nine or ten surgeries… I still have to to take my stitches off. We all should get rid of ailments and go for regular check ups. We don’t do it but we should for our family and kids.”
