What if Bollywood was ever to remake Charlie’s Angels a women-centric action-packed adventure would be a treat for Hindi Cinema fans. Let’s check out how it would pan out as an Indian cinematic experience!
We’ve grown up watching Bollywood films which include drama, comedy, horror, thriller, action, romance, biopic and documentaries. But, have you ever watched an action-packed film around women? No? Well, unfortunately, Bollywood is a male-dominated and male-centric industry. Bollywood is experimenting nowadays and has finally evolved to give us A-grade women-centric films like Neerja, NH10, English-Vinglish, Queen and many others. But what about a multi-starrer female action-packed thriller?
- Why Bollywood lacks when it comes to action-packed films based on women?
- What if Bollywood ever made the remake of Charlie’s Angels?
- These Bollywood divas can nail the characters of Charlie’s Angels.
Well, while we’ve had action movies like Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika and Rani Mukherjee’s Mardani, there haven’t been any flicks with multiple women playing action heroes. But we do think that Hollywood’s Charlie’s Angels would be a perfect start in the direction for Bollywood.
The iconic movie that originally starred Cameron Diaz, LucyLiu and Drew Barrymore has been remade with Elizabeth Banks’s direction and A-listers stars Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska becoming the new angels.
For those unaware, here’s the plot of Charlie’s Angels:
Sabina Wilson ( Kristen Stewart), Elena Houghlin (Naomi Scott) and Jane Kano (Ella Balinska) are working for an invisible man called Charles Townsend (Robert Clotworthy) Charlie’s security and the investigative agency has expanded internationally with the world’s smartest, bravest and highly trained women all over the globe. The film is packed with adventure, comedy, and action.
Now, talking about a Bollywood remake we’d like to put forward a suggested cast that can nail the characters of Charlie’s Angels in a Hindi remake.
Kristen Stewart (Sabina Wilson) – Disha Patani:
Disha Patani is herself a big-time action film lover. She is also one of the fittest actresses of Bollywood. Disha Patani has proved her mettle time and again, with her on-screen comfort and confidence in portraying characters well versed in action and martial arts makes her an automatic choice.
Furthermore, with the perfect body and skills to match, Disha Patani has done a range of action films and aced the act against the favoured male stars opposite her. We think Disha Patani would be a perfect fit for the role of Sabrina Wilson, the wild and rebellious angel in a Bollywood remake of Charlie’s Angels.
Naomi Scott (Elena Houghlin) – Jacqueline Fernandez
Elena Houghlin is a scientist and creator of the Calisto project. According to us, Jacqueline Fernandez could play the role of Elena in the Bollywood remake.
Ella Balinska (Jane Kano) – Katrina Kaif
Jane Kano, a former MI-6 agent who became an Angel. According to us, Katrina Kaif can be the perfect choice to play Jane’s role in the Bollywood remake. Katrina is well known for her perfectly toned body and her mesmerizing eyes and unparalleled beauty. Also, we’ve seen her high-action sequence in films like Tiger Zinda Hai and Bang Bang which impressed the audiences.
Robert Clothworthy (Charlie)- Shah Rukh Khan
Robert Clotworthy has been the voice of Charles Townsend (Charlie). Charlie is the person who directs the angels and gives them new missions. We think Shah Rukh Khan is the best choice to give his voice to the transistor in an Indian remake.
Elizabeth Banks (Bosley)- Priyanka Chopra Jonas
Elizabeth Banks as Rebekah Bosley played a former angel who was Charlie’s assistants and link with the Angels. According to us, Priyanka Chopra would be the perfect choice for the role of Bosley’s in the Hindi remake. She is one of the most talented actresses, Bollywood has ever produced and one of the very few that have made a mark in Hollywood as well. Priyanka is hands down a global superstar who can nail Bosley’s character.
If the plan works out and Charlie’s Angels is ever made in Bollywood, we bet this cast would give everyone else a run for their money!
