Ever wondered what it would be like to remake Bollywood versions of our all time favourite superhero movies, and star Bollywood’s best as Batman or Captain America or Hulk? Well, we often amuse ourselves with outlandish thoughts, but there’s no harm in making a few vague predictions just for the sake of fun!
Unfortunately, we don’t have many Indian superhero films, which makes this topic even more exciting. So here’s a list of desi veers and balwaans who we think would be apt as popular superheroes..
Akshay Kumar as Batman
There are several factors that make Akshay Kumar the quintessential choice for Batman. For instance, his mind-blowing ninja-like skills! His history in the field of martial arts is commendable and this heroic knack has always made him stand out in the film-industry. Till date, there ain’t no stunt that this hunk can’t pull off. Furthermore, he happens to be a silent knight who loves contributing to the society.
Healthy, wealthy, philanthropic and as skilled as a ninja.. Where have we possibly heard that combination before?
We rest our case! We couldn’t have landed a better vigilante in Bollywood.
Aamir Khan as Iron Man
It’s true that Iron Man is a billionaire & partially owes his success to his father but he’s also a genius, just like Aamir! A genius that loves his life, his work and most importantly himself. Bollywood’s perfectionist hardly differs from this fauladi rakshak. He loves his work and aces it; plus he’s famous for being good with the ladies. Double check?
When genius meets wit and fun, you get Iron Man, and Aamir Khan would do complete justice to this spontaneous superhero!
Hrithik Roshan as Superman
We know, we know! Hrithik is hamara Indian superhero aka Krrish and we can’t take that away from him. But on a brighter note, Superman isn’t human in the first place, he’s from another planet called Krypton and is supposedly the strongest superhero ever. And considering the fact that Krrish is done with its movie-series, this can only be an apt progression!
He can easily embody and emote everything that Superman stands for, with looks that can disarm and heat vision that can make us melt. A perfect man of steel, isn’t he?
Priyanka Chopra as Wonder Woman
The immaculate Wonder Woman movie gave us all a jaw-dropping moment. Her strength, compassion and impeccable spirit are oh-so-inspiring, we cannot imagine anyone apart from Priyanka Chopra doing justice to this character. Being a wonder that she is, Priyanka could easily be an icon of girl power and generosity.
The training that she took for Mary Kom could be of great use for this character and bring out its raw nature. I can almost hear Priyanka say the words.. “I’m willing to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.” *goosebumps*
Ranveer Singh as Deadpool
If we had to vote for one crazy in Tinseltown it would be none other than Ranveer Singh. The ever-charming and eccentric Ranveer is undoubtedly the most eligible choice for Deadpool.
This superhero, unlike the others, is known for his messed up moral compass and dark humour besides his super-strength and self-healing powers.
The anti-hero spirit combined with wit and humour is something Ranveer would exceptionally ace. And even he posted about it on Instagram.
Bad Ass? Check. Smart ass? Check. Great Ass? Check!!
These were our top choices for Bollywood actors as superheroes. There are few more that tickled our fancy.. Arjun Rampal As Thor: He has a Greek God like appearance and he’s fierce yet dapper! Ranbir Kapoor as Spiderman: He’s lean and strong and can effortlessly pull -off spidery gestures like swinging from building to building? Haha.
Imagine if there’s ever a Justice League, Avengers or X-men made in Bollywood.. The superhero movies cast would be insanely extraordinary!
