He revealed that he was once offered a role in a Salman Khan's film. He said, “One amusing offer (came to me) for a bit part in a Salman Khan starrer from a rather famous director. I can always cherish these moments. It was to play the role of an Indian foreign minister in a sequence and the advice I was given by a good friend was, ‘If you want to be the foreign minister, don’t play the foreign minister.’ I thought that made sense and I backed off.”
This revelation was made after he talked about the speculation that he has made appearance in Salman Khan and Aamir Khan starrer film 'Andaz Apna Apna'. He straight forwardly denied his appearance in a scene in the film. He said, “By then (the movie’s release), I was already working several years in the United Nations.”
He later also told that he has found out that who was that man in Andaz Apna Apna scene that people confused with Shashi Tharoor. He was a Gujarati actor who is no more. He said, “I am also far too old, I’m afraid, to have been at that stage of my youth when that movie was made. The irony is that after I came into Indian politics, I started getting movie offers. Why didn’t these come when I was young and handsome?”
