The Boys 3 a Bollywood Crossover: Things get even more diabolical with season 3 of The Boys. With each character leaving a lasting impression on our minds, one can’t help but wonder what would happen if our favorite Bollywood actors and actresses scored in this series. Who would be the badass Billy Butcher or the innocent essay, Hughie or Homelander? There are so many names that come to mind. So here is an idea what if bollywood stars were cast in their desi version who would be perfect as what?
Shah Rukh Khan as Billy Butcher
Who but King Khan could save us from the Supes. After all, he’s the role-playing and real-life superhero we grew up to see on screen. No awards for guessing SRK will kill it outright in the role of Billy Butcher, a rugged outlaw bent on revenge. With his charming smile and sense of humor, could there be a better guy to play Billy? We guess not. While he has mastered the role of romantic hero to perfection, films like Raees, Darr and Baazigar have proven he’s all too good at playing roles with a dark side. Adding to the madness that Butcher’s character brings, SRK’s own style will make for an amazing take on the Indian version of The Boy!
Akshay Kumar as home resident
Akshay Kumar can charm anyone with a trustworthy look and that perfect smile with white teeth. Top it all off with its clean image and a look that says “I am the hero” and we have our desi homelander ready. And as good as he can be, his evil side will drive viewers crazy! As brutal and cunning as Homelander is, we can’t wait to see this cloaked Khiladi strike.
Taapsee Pannu as Queen Maeve
She’s bold, sexy, confident and doesn’t apologize for her choices. The grandiose Taapsee will be perfect for playing Queen Maeve if the show has an Indian adaptation. Imagine how epic it would be to witness Queen Maeve’s character arc develop with Taapsee playing the part!
Vicky Kaushal as Hughie
We want the sweet-faced Indian heartthrob back, and Vicky Kaushal has to be just that for the role. Vicky has been spotted in a lot of macho roles lately and if he ever plays Hughie’s character it will take audiences absolutely no time to admire the sweet, innocent, yet wicked, smart guy we all just love! We believe that given a chance, this chocolate boy will be our perfect Bollywood version of Hughie.
Shraddha Kapoor as Starlight
Shraddha Kapoor nails the look of a new girl on the block with her humble, sweet face and friendly personality. She fits perfectly into the role of India’s Sweetheart (a label she’s already associated with), who secretly takes a stand against the criminals and the show’s real villains. And to top it off, imagine her in a superhero suit, she’ll be awesome!
Tiger Shroff as The Deep
The slow-witted pervert who tries to do good but ends up screwing things up, that’s The Deep for you. Not many can play the role of a character who’s easy to hate, but we can’t help but root for them, and who couldn’t root for the Flying Jatt Tiger Shroff, our very own desi superhero?! The Deep will see him return to what he loves most – insane action, and who knows, maybe we could make another popular meme out of it!
The Boys Season 3 is streaming on Amazon Prime Video! You can watch the first two seasons and the new weekly episodes and in the meantime come up with an alternative name for Indian Vought International.
