“However, after that I was suddenly offered around 49 films. I remember Yash Chopra ji called me for a narration. I was preoccupied with other films and couldn’t take up the offer because many of the projects I had already signed on were on floors and the filmmakers were fighting for my dates,” Roy said.

He finally revealed that the film was none other than Shah Rukh Khan-starer Darr.

“The film was Darr, which Shah Rukh Khan later took up and it shaped his career. His character Rahul was written keeping me in mind. I still have the big regret of not signing that film,” the Naseeb movie actor said.

This film’s song had become a rage and I am a little nervous to say this after so long – my first crush was Rahul Roy. Everyone was in love with him during his film Aashiqui,” Kareena said.
