Ever fancy one eyed Rajinikanth as Nick Fury in the Bollywood Version of Avengers: Infinity War? Here we have a treat for all Avenger lovers but with a Bollywood twist!

Avengers: Infinity War brought together all the heroes of a sprawling superhero universe of Marvels in a cohesive depiction while delivering an event that brings together 10 long years and 18 movies worth of build up. The movie reminded me of the first time I watched the Avengers in the frame: the first time that Iron Man destroyed himself to attain salvation, the first time Bruce Banner showed his angry side, and when Captain was rescued from deep inside the oceans. As the movie with a truly frantic villain and a line-up of charismatic superheroes, it was one of the biggest hits all across the world and makes me wonder who will be cast if the film was made in Bollywood!

Thanos -

It`s no easy task to humanize an insane Titan who desires to mop out half of the universe`s population with the snap of his fingers, but somehow, the makers of the movie cleverly found a way to make Thanos compelling. Although, he has his reasons to do so, and despite being the cause of some of the fan favorite’s deaths, you may find yourself rooting for him at some point or the other.

Now when you see Thanos on screen, who would you replace Josh Brolin with? Of course Sanjay Dutt! His persona, look and personality in Agneepath will perfectly suit Thanos’s character and will make it worth a watch.

Nick Fury -

Nick Fury is the ultimate leader of the captain of S.H.I.E.L.D. and is someone who is partially responsible for the creation of Avengers. Since the first Samuel L. Jackson was unveiled in Iron Man way back in 2008, the black patch has been an intrinsic part of his uniform which we cannot overlook.

To think of someone who can be a leader to lead such an amazing team in Bollywood, was quite a task. But who else can be the boss when we have the legend, Rajinikanth! And to add a little more thrill to it, think of the black patch on Rajinikanth’s eye. His dystopian sight and iconic characters, traversing over various genres of movies, have certainly landed him at the top of the list.

Iron Man/Tony Stark -

It’s profanity to even think of someone as Iron Man apart from Robert Downey Jr. because the superstar has played the character faultlessly. Tony Stark is one of those complex characters which has so many layers.

Flattering talking, debonair, charismatic, self-willed and a little full of himself. Who else could it be but Shah Rukh Khan and no one was even close to him? Imagine Shahrukh posing with his hands wide open and saying – “ Tony Stark, naam toh suna hi hoga?”

Captain America/Steve Rogers -

The most appealing thing about Captain is that he’s strong-jawed clean-cut hero and a classically attractive star who stands cluelessly in a world very new to him. The character is apparently the most attractive and physically beefed up member of the Avengers series.

It`s pretty obvious that the fittest actor in Bollywood would be perfect for the heroic role of Captain America in the Bollywood version. Who else has so many similarities in terms of character traits and physical abilities other than Akshay Kumar. So without any doubt, it would make him an ideal choice.

Thor -

Thor, the god of thunder is a young, juvenile and a wild fighter and definitely not the carefree one. But this does not mean that he’s humorless and Avenger: Infinity War allows the superhero to show off his witty and amusing side.

Just like the actor Chris Hemsworth, Hrithik Roshan is grossly popular amongst the female fans and certainly lacks no bite to play the hammer-wielding superhero because of his strong physique and good looks.

Hulk/Bruce Banner -

When the news got out in 2010 that Mark Ruffalo had been cast as Bruce Banner of the big, green monster, the Hulk in “The Avengers,” many fans of the franchise was incandescent but the character is the amongst the most interesting ones in the movie series. In my opinion, in acting context, the hardest job for an Avenger, is for Bruce Banner, who has to work with the emotional burden and fidgety nature of his second character throughout.

You know how committed and dedicated Salman Khan is when he is given something to experiment with. He would be the perfect choice to play the genius scientist and the huge green monster Hulk. And what suits him best is “Aam aadmi sota hua sher hai, ungli mat kar, jaag gaya toh chir faad dega”.

Star-Lord/Peter Quill -

Quill is one of those characters who is depicted to be quick-witted in the initial parts but slowly turns out to be forlorn until the end. Chris Pratt flawlessly showed his various sides- anger, humor, heartbreak in the film which was actually very interesting as well as stirring to watch.

Now think of Ranveer Singh in Chris Pratt’s place! Avengers: Infinity War would turn out to be a combination of Ranveer’s various persona. Pratt’s intense expressions and hilarious tenor will perfectly suit Ranveer’s character.

Black Panther/T`Challa -

It was back in 2016 when the audience saw Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther for the first time where Captain America and Iron Man were at the opposite ends but it was Chadwick, who avenged his father. Chadwick’s role as Black Panther is of a ruler, a leader, a king and a human with exceedingly enhanced capabilities and this makes him a big threat for Thanos and a superhero for the audience.

Imagine Ajay Devgn saying “Aata majhi Satakli” to Thanos when he attacks at Waganda. Rich, dark, tall, and handsome, Ajay Devgn is the only actor of the current lot in Bollywood who can achieve that chiseled body and have that gravitas in acting too with some intense expressions.

Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff -

As the prime female Avenger lead in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Widow has to kick ass all while looking hot as hell, a hard-headed spy who plays the men around her.

A courageous woman who packs quite a wallop, Priyanka Chopra sounds just perfect for the role. She has to brush up her actions skills but we are sure she can manage that. The biggest Indian superstar in Hollywood, who even has her own TV series Chopra, is born to play a character like Black Widow with her black suit from the Don film.

Gamora -

Gamora is a Thanos’s adoptive daughter who is one of the most feisty fighters. Thanos kills her as a sacrifice so that he could secure the Soul Stone, and the rest were moped out by the Mad Titan instantly.

Alia Bhatt has already shown us some of her intense action moves in Raazi and that she can seriously kick some butts at the right time. Moreover who else can be a better choice than Alia to be Thanos little daughter.

Dr. Strange -

Doctor Strange is the supreme sorcerer, the primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats with the help of his Time Stone, one of the stones that Thanos needs. Cumberbatch, who has beaten three other Hollywood actors competing for the role, was brilliant in the character arc, especially in the much-needed humorous asides.

With some original magical powers, Amitabh Bachchan is someone who has natural magical powers and is no less than a sorcerer. He is an ace actor with all the qualities similar to that what Doctor Strange has.

Spiderman -

Avenger: Infinity War’s most loved character was undoubtedly Spiderman. The first time Tom Holland showed up in Marvel series was in Captain America: Civil War, for which he received tons of positive reviews.

Now when we think of Spiderman in the film, the only person who comes to our mind for the Bollywood version is Varun Dhawan. Varun Dhawan is probably the coolest youngster in the industry.  

Vision -

Vision, an android who glides, has a wide-eyed view of humanity, has blood red skin and even rocks a cape with the Mind stone on his forehead. Paul Bettany made his debut as the android known as Vision in the Avengers sequel ‘Age Of Ultron’ and his character was then praised by the critics and the audience.

Now think of Milind Soman, the supermodel with similar jawline, mesmerizing eyes, and magnetizing smile. What’s more important is cheekbones plus a lean muscular physique which are the essential demands for playing the character who is also a robot most times.

Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff -

Wanda Maximoff or the Scarlet Witch is one of the most essential and necessary female roles of the movie, with some amazing powers and the ability to destroy an infinity stone and who can stop Thanos from getting the absolute power over the universe.

Deepika Padukone is one of the most beautiful and talented Bollywood actresses. Her aura of strength and grace will perfectly suit and will do justice to the role.

Loki -

Someone who wants to be a King, the God of Mischief with a crooked mind, and Thor’s adopted brother. This character is beautifully and intelligently carried off by the very versatile actor Tom Hiddleston.

We need an immensely good actor to play the role of Loki so as to perfectly portray his good shades and not just alienate the audience with his bad deeds. And who else than Aamir Khan can do that? Loki’s character is the most complex one in the franchise and we`re sure Aamir’s capricious acting will do film justice to it.

We all have seen Bollywood superhero movies but it’s time for ‘Hollywood dhamaal’ with our own ‘Bollywood stars ka Kamaal’. There is no gainsaying that the real star cast has done a brilliant job but ours are no less and the movie will definitely be one of the biggest blockbusters.
