Is Katrina Kaif the perfect Bond girl for Shahrukh Khan?
As soon as the Baadshah revealed his desire to play the 007 spy, we set out on a hunt to find the perfect Bond girl for him. And here’s what we discovered!
Shahrukh Khan revealed that playing the role of James Bond rules his wish list. Remember his tweet-confession? And it might continue to be just a ‘wish’ till Daniel Craig steps back and the Bond-makers decide to advertise a vacancy. But we’re not the ones to patiently twiddle our thumbs while waiting for the international hunks to make way for our desi dude. So we decided to make good use of our roving eye and begin the search for the quintessential desi Bond Girl.
So who could it be, we wondered aloud. And carefully picked six B-town babes – Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra, Kangna Ranaut, Anushka Sharma and Chitrangda Singh – who, we thought, could fit into the spiked stilettos of their international counterparts really well.
And do you know who according to our readers suited the role really well? Katrina Kaif! Yup, the lady who’s experimented with action in Salman Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger and who will also be seen whipping the heroes of Dhoom:3 into place with her stunts (pssst…we’ve heard she has more action sequences to her credit than Aamir Khan!).
But that doesn’t mean Kat’s contenders – Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone – were ignored. Hell, no! While the Barbie doll ruled the poll with 36.26 percent votes, Dippy with 30.18 percent and Piggy Chops with 29.49 percent followed close behind.
So there, BollywoodLifers – you have chosen the perfect Bond Girl for Shahrukh Khan. Now over to you, SRK – do you agree with us?
