Did you know that Shraddha Kapoor could have made her Bollywood debut with Salman Khan? Yes, you read that right. The actress, in a recent interview with Hindustan Times, revealed that she was offered a film with Salman when she was 16-year-old. However, she said no to the project because she wanted to "focus on her studies" at that point of time. Shraddha, later, made her Bollywood debut with the 2010 film Teen Patti, which also starred legendary actors like Amitabh Bachchan and Ben Kingsley. The film also featured Madhavan and Raima Sen in pivotal roles. "I felt that at the age of 15 or 16, I was too young and wanted to finish schooling and attend college. I don't think getting offers back then has defined my success. But it was difficult to turn it down and focus on studies because it was such a fantastic opportunity to work with Salman Khan," Shraddha said.

Good she didn't do it.

Actresses who debuted with Salman have average at very best careers.
Besides 33 - 16 = 17. So the offer was 17 years before hence during the 2000s decade which wasn't the best of time to be in a Salman movie.

So in any scenario, she dodged the bullet by rejecting that movie.

Man why does he go after teenage girls to cast in his movies? It's extremely creepy.
