Bollywood simply loves remakes, and so do we, but only when it’s not a senseless rip-off. Since the time we got a glimpse of ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ trailer, we can’t help but get all excited about the movie which is set to hit the screens soon.

The reboot is one of the most anticipated films of 2017 and having Dwayne Johnson in it just adds more to the thrill of witnessing the twisted world of Jumanji once again.

Bollywood often comes up with remakes and we are seriously hoping this is on their list as well. Wouldn’t it be interesting to see who will say the epic dialogues in Hindi, “Did someone roll a five or an eight?” and “WHAT YEAR IS IT?”

Thinking about the Bollywood version, we already have some fabulous ‘desi’ actors in mind that would absolutely fit the bill.

1. Dwayne Johnson – Prabhas

Dwayne Johnson ‘The Rock’, doesn’t need an introduction and nor does our very own mighty ‘Baahubali’ aka Prabhas. With their identical muscular physique and amazing sense of humor, Prabhas is cent percent the right pick for this role. Known for giving his best, we can bet that Prabas will definitely justify the role of Dr. Smolder Bravestone, an archaeologist, and explorer.

2. Kevin Hart – Varun Dhawan

Who better than Varun Dhawan to play Kevin Hart role of Franklin “Moose” Finbar, a zoologist and weapons specialist? Varun fits perfectly into the funny shoes of Kevin since he himself is a big fan of the WWE star and nurtures the dream of working with him someday.

3. Jack Black – Arshad Warsi

There is no one like Arshad Warsi when it comes to comedy and wit. The man can literally leave you in splits in seconds with just a straight face. So who other than Arshad to don Jack Black’s role of Professor Sheldon “Shelly” Oberon, a cartographer, cryptographer, archaeologist, and palaeontologist? We can already imagine Arshad taking it to another level.

4. Karen Gillan – Katrina Kaif


After having played an explorer-cum-spy-cum-writer in ‘Jagga Jasoos’, Katrina is one hell of an actress who is even known for doing her own stunts. She is one who can easily transform herself into the chic jungle fighter flawlessly. Karen plays Ruby Roundhouse, a killer of men and dance fighter and this role needs someone who can do it all effortlessly and Kat is the one and only for it!

5. Director – Jake Kasdan – Rohit Shetty


Making a Bollywood version of Jumanji needs an actor who can totally pull it off with style and who better than Rohit Shetty to deal with a subject like that? Maybe Rohit should take our suggestion seriously and work on this project.

Now doesn’t that sound like a full proof plan for a blockbuster Bollywood film? The film ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ is all set to hit the screens on 29th December and we bet this reboot will be one hell of a watch.
