Yash Raj Films announced they will be remaking Sujoy Ghosh’s hit thriller Kahaani for Hollywood audience. Now, it filled us with pride that Uday Chopra is taking best of our stories abroad because it is time they realize we are more than song and dances. That also made us wonder who would best suit for the characters in the film. And here’s what we think…
The lead was played to perfection by Vidya Balan in Kahaani and the only person we can think of who can carry this off in Hollywood is Katherine Heigl. The character needs to look every bit homely while harbouring a sinister plan and she is the only one who can do it with aplomb.
For the role of Vidya’s cop aide in the film which was brilliantly portrayed by Parambrata Chakraborty, Edward Norton would fit the bill. There has to be certain vulnerability attached to the character and Norton excels in such roles.
For Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s character, George Clooney will be beyond perfect. Yes, we agree the role isn’t long and might not justify Clooney’s stature, but he will delicious to look at (winks).
For Arnab Bagchi or Milan Damji which was played by Indraneil Sengupta in the original, we can easily pick Bradley Cooper for the same. Do we need to explain the reasons here?
