Have you ever wondered what it would be like if our own Bollywood stars brought their own charms to superhero movies like the Avengers or Marvel’s latest? Eternals? It’s not uncommon to wonder so many B-Town actors who are a perfect match for comic book superheroes, and we’re here to talk about them exactly. Eternals is released on November 5 and has already won over many Indian fans with its exclusive Bollywood promos that have charmed more than one.
Although we are very happy to witness that Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden and Salma Hayek’s crew have us in store, the fangirl in me can’t help but wonder who would have made the final cut if Bollywood had decided to make their own Eternals movie. Take a look at the choices and you are welcome:
Sidharth Malhotra as Ikaris
One of the most famous characters in comics and hopefully the movie as well, Ikaris can shoot laser beams from his eyes and throw the best punches! The character Richard Madden plays in Hollywood’s Eternals needs someone as beautiful and charming as Madden to do justice in the Bollywood remake (if any!) Who but Sidharth Malhotra to take on the task? His artistry, beautiful features and charms can surprise anyone, and we wouldn’t want to miss that if Eternals comes to Bolly!
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as Thena
No one can even come close to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s skills when it comes to portraying iconic women. Rai’s powerful acting and ability to play any character she owns would be the best addition to look forward to if Eternals comes to B-Town and she plays Thena. Moreover, after Angelina Jolie, if there is someone who can be put in Thena’s place, it’s our Desi diva, so we rest.
Madhuri Dixit as Ajak
The wise and witty leader can certainly be played by Madhuri Dixit as her maturity as an actress has made her one of Bollywood’s most famous personalities. Additionally, judging by how the trailers look and what the comics tell us about Ajak, his power as the leader of the Immortals can be dramatically described by the one and only Queen of Expressions, Mohini. aka Madhuri!
Deepika Padukone as Sersi
Do you understand how perfect it would be if Deepika Padukone truly graced our screens as a bold and beautiful Sersi? Deepika as a Marvel superhero (currently played by Gemma Chan) would have a variety of emotions to go through, and just like most of her Bollywood movies, even Eternals has a tragic love affair tied to Sersi!
Vicky Kaushal as Kingo
Kingo’s charm as a beautiful Bollywood hunk can only be played by Vicky Kaushal and if you ask us it looks like the role was made for him! Kaushal’s flawless acting and dedication would elevate the superhero role and we’re sure he would make the character a hit in no time.
Ranbir Kapoor as the Dark Knight
Wait, did we actually do this? Yes. Kit Harington’s Dark Knight, whose role may not be clear at the moment, has huge potential to shine in future Marvel films, and if Bollywood were to do something with the Eternals, there was no way that Black Knight goes to someone other than Ranbir Kapoor. His epic eyes can speak, and we can’t wait to see Ranbir Kapoor be a superhero, strategist, and swordsman.
Sanjay Dutt as Gilgamesh
Gilgamesh’s maturity as a warrior and his rejuvenating power make Sanjay Dutt the perfect match. Dutt can make sure he owns any role given to him, and we’re absolutely certain that Dutt’s Gilgamesh would be just as iconic as Don Lee’s Gilgamesh.
Asim Riaz as Druig
Asim Riaz can certainly do justice to a complicated character like Druig. Despite being a supervillain, Druig’s story is difficult to decipher, but we can easily trust Asim to bring out the best in the main foe of the group and reinstate himself as the main character. .
Tapsee Pannu as Makkari
Tapsee Pannu has owned every role she’s played to date, and if given the chance we know she would absolutely rock as Makkari. Makkari’s strength, endurance, speed and superhuman qualities would need an actor who is daring, courageous and who wouldn’t hesitate to do his own stunts. At Tapsee, we have confidence, don’t we?
Prabhas as Phastos
One of the Eternals’ most important superheroes in terms of storyline, Phastos is the genius tech who has it all, and there’s no one other than Prabhas we can think of who would do the role justice. .
