In 2013 when Anil Kapoor got “24” to India, we were more than eager to see American style TV series being broadcasted in Indian family units. The content quality was flawless and the performances were too. Yet, resembles that was the first and the last great show to have left the motivation that Indian TV regularly takes from the West.
Whatever, there are some characters on American TV that are widely loved by our Indian audience. So, how it’ll look if some of these popular shows will come to India and have our Bollywood actors in them? Love to watch that?
Check it out:
#1. Sonam Kapoor as Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl:
Remember Sonam’s character in Aisha? Now picture her in a white Limo, cruising the Upper East Side in her Versace evening gown, while her minions give her the latest updates from Gossip Girl. I think I have painted a very accurate picture in my mind!
#2. Alia Bhatt as Penny from The Big Bang Theory:
We all are in love with Penny. Whenever she appeared in the show, made us believe that geeky is SEXY. She is like the cherry on the cake for the show that is well-known as The Big Bang Theory. Isn’t that Alia Bhatt in all her movies? The cherry on the cake!
#3. Amitabh Bachchan as Frank Underwood from House of Cards:
Amitabh Bachchan was the main pillar in Sarkar. The character and role of senior Bachchan is exactly same as Kevin Spacey in House of Cards. A true politician who would go to any extent to get whatever he wants. Frank Underwood character will get justice if only Big B plays it in India. Agree?
#4. Ranbir Kapoor as Ross Gellar from F.R.I.E.N.D.S:
F.R.I.E.N.D.S!!! I dare not to say a single word against this. But if we think about making an Indian version of this show, then Ranbir Kapoor will fit perfectly in Ross’s character/role, who is always confused about love but still in the hopes of tying down with a lady. I bet no one can do this role better than Ranbir.
#5. Ranveer Singh as Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother:
Note: This applies only if Ranveer is ready to suit up.
Whenever I think about the desi version of Barney Stinson, only Ranveer Singh came to my mind. I bet he can steal the show with his legendary antics and charm with the ladies.
#6. Kangana Ranaut as Daenerys Targaryen from Game Of Thrones:
If all these ever become reality, then I must say we will love to see our Indian Queen Kangana to play Daenerys Targaryen to win our hearts all over again!
#7. Abhishek Bachchan as Marshall Eriksen from How I Met Your Mother:
It’s not the time to think ‘What’ and ‘How’, let’s give some love to Junior Bachchan. Marshall is an adorable character who is always in a mood to fun. As we know Abhishek Bachchan is a kind of person who always love to have fun. He’s the actor who has the right aptitude for this character.
#8. Irrfan Khan as Dr. Gregory House from House:
You must be exceptional yet enchanting, while imagination moves through your veins to be Dr. House. We’ve seen Irrfan Khan portray himself in various characters, and watching him play Dr. House would be a dream come true.
#9. Naseeruddin Shah as Walter White from Breaking Bad:
Don’t you love to see the transform of Walter White from HeisenBerg? If this character will be implemented in India, then no one is better than Naseer Sir. He can play this character miraculously and can take it into an extreme level.
#10. Deepika Padukone as Rachel Green from F.R.I.E.N.D.S:
If Ranbir is Ross, then definitely we’ll love to see Deepika as Rachel. Deepika can give her best to her character by evolving from a distress to an independent working professional who is still trying to figure out her LOVE.
#11. Akshay Kumar as Harvey Specter from Suits:
For this character, we want a man with charm in his EYES, authority in his VOICE and the power to leave you speechless with his ACTING. And the actor who defines all these qualities perfectly is none other than Akshay Kumar. We definitely want him as Harvey Specter.
#12. Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Dexter from Dexter:
Nawazuddin was outstandingly scary as the serial killer in Raman Raghav 2.0. Dexter is the serial killer who hate to love. Do the math. I challenge you can’t find a better actor than Nawazuddin for this character/role. Eager to see!
