The subversive and funny anti-hero Deadpool is certainly loved all over the world and that includes India too. After the first movie in 2016, it became a big brand creating a craze among the cine-lovers. The same is again proven with the release of its sequel on May 18.
Being crazy DP fans, we decided to reimagine the characters for the Indian version of the movie. After wracking our brains about this super important issue, here’s what we present. Don’t worry, we follow a strict no spoiler policy.
1. Cable – Sunny Deol
The scary looking mutant Cable, played by Josh Brolin, has the power to know what happens in future. He uses that power to make this world a better place. Who can portray this perfect balance of muscle and kind-heartedness better than Sunny Deol?
2. Domino – Priyanka Chopra
With her mutant probability-altering powers, she is a bad-ass lady who loves to smack down the villains. This role is played by Zazie Beetz in the movie. In our home font, no one can play this role better than Priyanka who has already shown her crime-fighting side in Don and Quantico.
3. Vanessa – Deepika Padukone
Love of Deadpool’s life Vanessa is played by Morena Baccarin. She plays the role of an intelligent, unafraid, and smart lady who is drop-dead gorgeous. Certainly, Deepika Padukone is the one who can play it to the point of perfection.
4. Firefist – Kush Shah
This is the character around which the entire movie revolves. Played by Julian Dennison, the movie is based on protecting him from Cable. Who can be this character’s Indian version? After much thought, we decided to settle on Kush Shah who is famous for his role in TV serial ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah.’
5. Weasel – Rajkummar Rao
Quirky, unapologetic, and bitterly straightforward, Deadpool’s best friend is played by T.J. Miller in the movie. Versatile actor Rajkummar Rao is the perfect fit who can give right treatment to this character.
6. Dopinder –Varun Sharma
Played by Karan Soni, this scared and funny character is Deadpool’s driver. Our version of this character is Varun Sharma, who played the role of Chucha in ‘Fukrey.’
7. Negasonic Teenage Warhead – Swara Bhaskar
You know what’s her power? Negasonic Teenage Warhead, played by Brianna Hildebrand can telekinetically detonate the area around her. Also, she is the first openly gay superhero. Sounds cool? That’s why we so wish the no-nonsense actress Swara Bhaskar will play her role if the movie ever gets an Indian version.
8. Deadpool – Ranveer Singh
You must have guessed it! This quirky actor often seen in crazy attires is a perfect fit to play the role of Deadpool. Originally played by Ryan Reynolds, Ranveer is already lending his voice for the Hindi version of the movie.
