We have heard about Bollywood actors or actresses rejecting a movie role for one reason or the other, but one of the common reasons is as a result of the age gap between the lead actors and thier love interest. For instance, Katrina Kaif was offered the female lead in '2 States' to act alongside Arjun as her love interest, but she rejected the movie because she felt Arjun looks way younger opposite her. Ranbir Kapoor also once rejected a romantic movie when Sonakshi was to be his love interest for the movie because he felt she look too old for him.
However, some Bollywood actors and actresses felt that age doesn't really matter when it comes to acting and as such, they acted alongside each other as their love interests in a movie despite their huge age difference. Right now we are going to take a look at some of these stars and the age difference between them.
