Akshay Kumar's name had also been doing the rounds for the new brand ambassador of the government's 'Incredible India' campaign and the superstar said he would love to take the position.
However, megastar Amitabh Bachchan emerged as the top choice to front the campaign after superstar Aamir Khan, whose contract ended recently.
Besides Bachchan, and Chopra, Akshay Kumar and Deepika Padukone were also said to be in the race.
Of course, I would love to be the ambassador of Incredible India. It is a huge honour and I would take it if approached," Akshay had told reporters.
