Gerard: I was Bolly close to film role
FILM hunk Gerard Butler has revealed he could have become a cinema superstar in BOLLYWOOD.
The Scot, 43, once auditioned for a part in Oscar-nominated Indian movie Lagaan.
But he failed to get the part and instead shot to fame in hit flick 300.
Butler, who now earns a whopping £13million a movie in Hollywood, said: "I auditioned for a Bollywood film 13 years ago.
"I think it was Lagaan. It was a great movie."
He revealed years later he was offered another role in a film starring former Miss World Priyanka Chopra — who he has been linked with.
He said: "I was actually holidaying in Jaipur and Priyanka was shooting for her film there.
"Then she had another film, Kaminey. They even asked me to do a role in it. That didn't happen but what an amazing film."
