Aamir rejected actor for being too good looking

Pakistani actor Humayan Saeed was not signed for the title role in Ghajini because Aamir Khan rejected him for being too good-looking to be a villain.

He was lucky enough to be approached by Aamir Khan for the role of main villain in Ghajini after the Perfectionist Khan liked his performance in Pakistani film, Inteha.

Says Humayan, “I had come down (to India) to meet Aamir for Ghajini. But the moment he saw me, he said, ‘Arrey, you are too good-looking to play Ghajini in my film.’ Aamir Khan’s uncle, H Rehmati, who is a film distributor in Pakistan, had distributed Inteha (1998) in which I had done a negative role. I guess that is how Aamir thought I would suit the role. But he was very disappointed when he saw me.”

The title role in Ghajini was finally played by Pradeep Rawat.
