Nothing makes us more nostalgic than reliving that humble childhood, when our biggest concerns would be missing our favorite shows and on-screen toons. Some characters always have a lasting memory and a special place in our hearts forever, reminding us of our childhood that we cherish so deeply.
Another obsession we all fondly remember was with Bollywood actors, which frankly also carries over when we are adults. In a beautiful amalgamation of two of our favorite childhood fixations, we imagined which Bollywood actors would perfectly bring our animated friends to life!
Here are 10 Bollywood actors we think do justice to these popular animated characters.
Ranbir Kapoor as Pinaki from Bhoot Bandhus
Given Ranbir Kapoor’s aptitude for playing eccentric, eclectic characters, he would be the perfect choice to play Pinaki in Nickelodeon India’s latest IP, Bhoot Bandhus. It would be fascinating to watch him bring Pinaki’s unique charm and childish mischief to life on the big screen!
Shahid Kapoor as Happy from Bhoot Bandhus
If there is anyone who can pull the friendly ghost Happy, it is Shahid Kapoor. The crazy energetic Bhoot is a brother figure to Pinaki, and we think Shahid and Ranbir would work together like a house on fire! Plus, his impeccable fashion sense is proof that he’d do rock star Happy’s baggy outfits right.
Anupam Kher as Motu from Motu Patlu
Anupam Kher is one of the loveliest and most comical acting stars of his generation. We think the best match would be the actor to play Motu with their shared charm and funny sense of humor, making them both among the most loved characters on screen.
Amitabh Bachchan as Patlu from Motu Patlu
Best known for his tall, dark, and handsome persona, Amitabh Bachchan is said to be the perfect Patlu counterpart to the goofy Motu. While the look would certainly be different for the glamorous star, he would definitely rock Patlu’s bald avatar with grace.
Ayushmann Khurana as Gopal from Golmaal Jr
There is no doubt that Ajay Devgn plays Gopal’s character in the film spectacularly, but you will ever wonder if Ajay Devgn, who from Bollywood would play the characters seamlessly, wouldn’t play. We think it could be Ayushmann Khurrana as having a boyish charm and immense versatility as one of the best performers in Bollywood, Ayushmann would be the best candidate to bring Gopal to life.
Siddhant Chaturvedi as Madhav from Golmaal Jr.
Aside from sharing delightful camaraderie with Madhav counterpart, Siddhant Chaturvedi has exactly the wit and charisma that this iconic character has. We can’t imagine the magic these two would create with action king Rohit Shetty, the creator of this thrilling cartoon series.
Salman Khan as Chota Bheem in Chota Bheem
Chota Bheem has been a great source of joy to many of us during the precious formative years of our lives. We need an extraordinarily enigmatic actor to go along with the legendary cartoon character. With their bulging biceps to match and charitable manners, they’re a match made in heaven.
Alia Bhatt as Chukti in Chota Bheem
Adorable, sassy and endearing, we’d love to see Alia Bhatt flawlessly epitomize the female protagonist in the famous cartoon series. We’d love to see the crackling chemistry between these two acting powerhouses!
Ranveer Singh as Flynn Rider from Tangled
From their feisty personalities to the same playful grin, no one is more likely to play the thief with a heart of gold. Witnessing the vibrant nature bring to life would certainly be a treat!
Priyanka Chopra as Jasmine
Romance, comedy, drama, is there anything Priyanka Chopra can’t do? We are convinced that given the sheer diversity of characters that the brilliant actor has written, she would powerfully bring the depiction of the superhuman cartoon to life.
