Start.... Action....Cut !!! -- Bollywood

How difficult would it be for some of the stars from tinsel town to go against the odds and perform roles that they havent tried yet? and would it be possible for us to accept them in their new avatar?

Well, here are certain characters that I would want to see some of todays lead actors in Bollywood perform(I am not taking the actresses into consideration here, ‘cause not most of the time we get to see a heroine-centric subject in our movies. Moreover, most of todays heroines are busy getting themselves into a bikini!).

To begin with, how about SRK as a cop? I guess, he played a cop just once in 1, 2 ka 4(sans uniform) and there were also a couple of other movies where he appeared in the uniform. But we have never seen King Khan wearing the Khakhee ‘vardi’ yet. A sleek, stylish hardcore action movie along with SRKs high energy, attitude and newly toned body, would be something to look out for.

Aamir Perfectionist Khan as a serial killer. No sad past, no flashbacks, no spiteful revenge; the character is bad and he is bad for no reason. We missed seeing him in Darr and we hardly got to watch a negative Aamir in Fanaa and Earth. For a person who hasn’t tried his skills yet in a full fledged negative role, this would surely be a challenge.

Salman Khan in a lead role based on the cartoon series Johnny Bravo. I cant imagine any other actor in Bollywood today for this role. For those who do not have an idea on the cartoon, Johnny Bravo is a handsome dim-witted narcissict who is always a failure with women. And of course, this role would be in complete contrast to Salmans repetitive appearances as a love guru in No entry, Jaaneman and Partner.

Hrithik Roshan in a slightly off beat movie playing the role of a prisoner who had been sentenced to life time imprisonment. Roshan Jr. mite not be having a flair towards comedy roles, but if given a role that has the scope for him to perform emotionally or frustrated, he does with élan. And btw its high time he shed his good looks and did powerful roles.

If there is one actor who has improved a lot in terms of his dialogue delivery and comic timing over the years, its none other than our King Kumar. Wouldn’t it be fun to see Akshay enact a hilarious alcoholic criminal lawyer on screen? Some one who gets drunk all the time(not inside the court, of course) and lands up in trouble. Since Akki is being so repetitive these days, it would be a pleasure watching him in the courts trial room making use of his usual wits, charm and one liners to win the legal proceedings. Oh oh, and how can I forget that famous gum exhibiting grin of his!!!

Saif Ali Khan as a young educated politician who aims at reforming the country(inspired by Rahul Gandhi ??). A character that has only good intentions but uses his shrewdness to win over his contemporaries. It’s always a revelation to watch Saif perform meaningful roles, a natural actor that he is, and I am sure he would do complete justice to this role.

...out of context but ‘actors’ like Tusshar Kapoor, Zayed Khan, Dino Moreo, Upen Patel – please stay away from the industry! ASAP !!!

PS : I will be coming out with my version of Kollywood as well. Stay tuned..er..browsed.

wow..thts a cool subject!!

SRK as cop..hmm.. perhaps in a movie like "vettayadu vilayadu".where he should play a serious intelligent cop without much emotional drama, masala,item song and love songs!! hehe

AAmir...hmm...he can certainly play a killer!!...i think he should act in some desi-werewolf movie directed by Ramu!!....
........he can play a hairy werewolf this time!!and the best part is tht he can have a new hair style yet again !! hehe

rakesh said...

salman playing the role of johmy bravo??no way!!
i think joey tribbiani(matt leblanc) should play his role!..woah mama!!hehe

hmm wht role should i give to salman??...ahh!! i think u will need to exchange hrithik's role of the life imprisonment dude to sallu.
i think he will be perfect for the role coz of his real life experiences!! ... OR.............
u can give him the role of an eskimo!!
atleast in this movie,he wont be shirtless!! hehe

rakesh said...

hmm..hrithik should act in a mythological movie this time!!not as Ram ,not as Krishna...................!!
i think he should play our desi super hero "Hanuman"!
this way,he can shed his good looks and still be powerful!!hehe



Mr. khiladi should either play an anari OR a dentist!!hehe


The perfect role for saif would be tht of a footballer!! not coz of his football skills!

only coz he got a tattoo of his gf's name on his hand, just like beckham!

this should help ........... u understand what i mean by........“we have distorted the history to suit our purpose………”.........and why 1857 revolt isn't 1st war of “India’s” independence

Seeing Aamir in role of a serial killer would be worth watching. SRK will romanticise the cop. I can picture Saif as politician, he would look close to Akshay in Aaja Nach Le.

@ rakesh : The desi werewolf concept was already churned out by The Bhatts in Junoon. Remember, we had Rahul 'going to hollywood' Roy turning into a tiger when its full moon ???
and of course, matt le blanc is my obvious choice for Johnny Bravo, when made in Hollywood.

@ anonymous: Thanks.and also for dropping by.

@ reets: thanks.will b out in a couple of weeks. I am yet to finalise a character for one of the leading star.

@ soneeta: being a director is also my dream.sigh! some thngs remain better as dreams!! and salman as a bramhachaari, are u kidding me??? LOL.

@ sachin: err..thanks for the link.

@ poonam: I had the fear if SRK would romanticise any of those girls in Chak de.I am glad that dint happen. I guess thats the only movie where there were no references to a love interest of his. I havnt seen Aaja Nach le yet, is akshays role similar to the one i had written for Saif???

Btw, what should i do to get ur version of this post???

Poonam said...

yes, akshay played a modern day, suave politician in Aaja Nach Le. :)

vimmuuu said...

a very similar but elaborate take on Shah Rukhs Khakhee avatar as mentioned in this post has come in indiatimes.com on 28th May 2008.

Coincidence or ...???

Poonam Sharma said...

yeah, it is similar but this one would be hard to prove as they use part of your blog post and present it differently. But I wont be surprised to know if they got the idea here.
