Akshay Kumar once told that he was signed only for stunts and action films. Apart from this, other roles were not given at all. He also had to face rejections many times. Something similar happened with him for Aamir Khan’s film ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar’. The film, which released in 1992, also starred Pooja Bedi, Deepak Tijori and Ayesha Julk along with Aamir. Akshay also auditioned for this film. But that role went to Deepak Tijori.
In a throwback interview given to ET Times, Deepak Tijori had told that he and Akshay had gone to audition together. ‘Both Akshay and I auditioned and were rejected. I was called when the film was 75 percent complete. The film was directed by Mansoor Khan and produced by Nasir Hussain.
