The new Bond movie Spectre’s cast was announced recently. The Bond series has been an iconic saga since the past 24 years in Hollywood. We take a look at leading men of Bollwyood and ask you on who you think is suitable to play James Bond!
“Bond, James Bond.” These three words have stayed with many die-hard fans of the legendary saga of the Bond series. From Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan to Daniel Craig, leading men of Hollywood have floored millions with their sex appeal, charm and oomph. The new Bond movie titled Spectre, will feature the likes of Andrew Scott (Andrew Scott (Denbigh), Monica Bellucci (Lucia Sciarra), and Christoph Waltz (Oberhauser). While I am blown away by the recently announced star cast of the 24th Bond film, I take a look at Bollywood actors, who are eligible to stand in the race of being voted as the probable James Bond. I list the contenders and give my reasons for the same:
Varun Dhawan: He wouldn’t have been on my list, had it not been for the recently released teaser of his film Badlapur. Intense, fierce and powerful, Varun’s mini show as Raghu in the teaser, convinced me of his abilities to bring more to the table other than his chocolate boy looks, chichora mannerisms and sugar coated dialogues. Young and restless, Varun has what it takes to be a Bond.
Sidharth Malhotra: I believe Sidharth’s somber appeal makes him an eligible contender. James Bond is known for his stern form, and Sid can pull off the same if given a chance. Tall, brawny and rugged, Sid’s physique and aura certainly qualify him as an actor worthy of the Bond post!
Fawad Khan: For me, this Pakistani heartthrob is the perfect lad to play James Bond. Charming? Tick. Sexy? Tick. Intelligent? Tick. Intense? Tick? A ladies’ man? Double tick! Give him a swanky car to drive, a gorgeous lady to romance and a lavish lifestyle to live, Fawad Khan will be good to go! What’s not to like, I ask?
Arjun Kapoor: The Tevar actor has often been seen sporting a brooding avatar. In my opinion, this trait of his makes him eligible to be included in the list. Bond primarily is a sophisticated action hero. I believe if the actor is given a makeover of those sorts, he can carry off action sequences with the expected demeanour.
Ranbir Kapoor: My list gets summed up with Ranbir Kapoor. The actor’s personality is powerful and enduring, which automatically makes him a challenger in the race. Bond is popular for his Casanova ways. I’m not saying RK is the same way but he does posses the ability to charm women on the drop of a hat. Be it his dimpled smile, the way he speaks or the way he performs his roles, the actor manages to strike a perfect balance between intensity and amusement.
Well those are my chosen ones and now it is your turn. Tell me who you think is capable of being the James Bond of Bollywood. Post your votes in the box below!
