Nayanthara once rejected to be part of SRK’s Chennai Express

Nayanthara, an established South Indian actress, is set to make her Hindi film debut alongside Shah Rukh Khan.

She was initially offered a role in the film "Chennai Express," but she declined the offer.

Nayanthara was not approached to play the female lead, Meenamma, played by Deepika Padukone.

She was offered a role in the song "1 2 3 4 Get on the Dance Floor."

She turned down the offer  because she was looking for more substantial roles.
