Chandrachur Singh recalls the time Karan Johar approached him for the role of Aman in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

Chandrachur Singh has kept himself away from the limelight for a long time now. The actor made a fantastic debut in Bollywood in the early 90s but soon disappeared from the fraternity. Chandrachur Singh is now finally making a comeback in Disney Plus Hotstar's show Aarya. Aarya also stars Sushmita Sen in the action-packed adventure show.
 
In a recent interview with DNA Chandrachur Singh has recalled the time filmmaker Karan Johar asked him to play the role of Aman in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. The role later went to Salman khan instead. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai continues to hold on to its cult classic legacy. Singh has admitted that he regrets saying no to the role but it is an experience that he has learned from.
 
He added saying, "It was my loss that's all I can say. It is a very nice and cult film and the fact is that, what was meant to be, was meant to be. It's one of those decisions you make and learn from that."
 
Karan Johar previously also told this story on the show Yaaron Ki Baarat. Karan then said, "I had thought of casting Chandrachur Singh in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai after three other actors rejected the role. I was told nobody wants to do the role and I was already stressed. So I went to give Chandrachur a narration and after the first day, he asked me to call him and meet the next day. When I called him a day later, he told me he would do the film and asked for a complete narration. I went all the way from Malabar Hill to Seven Bungalows and then, even before I could start, he refused to do my film. I just thought he could have told me that on the phone and saved my two hours of travel time."
