Vikram said no to Mani Ratnam

Not many know that Vikram was Mani Ratnam’s first choice to play the lead role in Bombay. The ace director approached Vikram to do the hero’s role in the movie but since he wanted him to sport a clean-shaven look, Vikram did not take up the offer owing to other film commitments that required him in rugged looks.

Eventually the role went to Aravindsamy and the rest is history. Then again Mani Ratnam wanted to cast Vikram in Alaipayuthe but this did not happen as well. Finally, the two got together for Raavanan. Looks like Mani Ratnam was set on casting Vikram in one of his films and pursued the actor continuously.
