Opening up about the fiasco, Prashant said, “I turned down Rang De Basanti because the person who they’d sent to discuss money with me was rude. He’ll never forget what I told him, I can’t repeat it here. Aamir and all are my friends, he really likes me. I spent a year on that film with Rakeysh Mehra, I was doing the role that Sharman eventually did. Then Rakeysh offered me Siddharth’s role, but I was in Canada by then.”

He further added, “The disagreement happened over money. I’d been attached to the project for a year, I was doing script readings, speaking with Rakeysh. I thought he’d handle the financial discussion himself, but it was some production person. I went to meet him and he said, ‘This is what we’re ready to offer’. I asked, ‘Have you already decided or is this a negotiation’? I told him, ‘Yeh mere 6 mahine ke conveyance ka paisa hai (This is what I’d spend on conveyance for six months)’. He told me that I’m getting an opportunity to work with Aamir, so I shouldn’t be this stubborn. What I told him next I can’t repeat here.”

Rang De Basanti was a huge hit and got critical acclaim. The film also starrered, Kunal Kapoor, Atul Kulkarni, and Alice Patten.
