Raveena, who was recently seen in 'Karmma Calling', revealed in an interview that she rejected four films with Shah Rukh Khan including 'Darr'. Read on to know why.

In an interaction with Mirchi Plus, Raveena Tandon said that she was offered Juhi Chawla's role in Yash Chopra's 'Darr', opposite SRK, but she decided to turn down the offer.

Raveena shared that she couldn't do four films with SRK. The actress said that one movie was cancelled due to the director's death. She stepped back from the second one because she wasn't satisfied with the costumes.

“We did Zamana Deewana but that also got delayed. Darr was something that I was offered but I stepped back," said Raveena.

Earlier, in an interview with ANI, Raveena had said, “Darr had come to me first, though it was not vulgar, but earlier there were some scenes in Darr, I was not comfortable with.” Aside from Raveena, the film was also offered to Aishwarya Rai who stepped away because she had to compete at Miss World.
