Baazigar is one movie that shaped the career of Shah Rukh Khan. SRK, however was not the first choice in Baazigar. In fact, Shahrukh was not even the second choice.

Akshay rejected the film thinking that a negative role would not do any good to his image and stardom and so the role went to SRK and the rest is history.
